  • So I’ve started editing the kubrick layout so it works tomy original design which was here.

    Now my navigation works by using css to just swap out images. Unfortunatley i use an
    <ul> and it messes with the sidebars order list in crazy ways any iea how I can get around this?

  • here is the fiasco I am trying to make look like my original layout monumentsinking

    What you do is give the navigation ul an id, for example <ul id="navi"> and in your CSS code you would style it as:

    #navi ul
      #navi ul li

    Hope this helps.

    Try adding this to your active theme’s stylesheet:

    #nav { list-style: none; margin: 0px auto 0 auto; padding: 5px 0; text-align: left; width: 80%; min-width: 65em; max-width: 85em; }
    #nav li  { list-style: none; margin: 0; padding: 0 5px; display: inline; }
    #nav li a  { color: chocolate; padding: 3px 0; text-decoration: none; }
    #nav li a:hover, #nav li.current_page_item a { color: fuchsia; padding: 3px 0; text-decoration: none; border-bottom: fuchsia 1px solid; }

    You’ll probably want to tinker with the specifics, like padding, margin, colours, etc.

    Well I’ve got it almost working only thing is for some reaosn now my images aren’t showing up.

    I feel it’s wise at this point to remind you to invest some time in doing a CSS tutorial. The one at echoecho.com is good. It’s best in the long term not be in a hurry for a “quick fix”, as you will almost certainly face additional challenges down the track. Having a solid understanding of the basics will help you heaps.

    I mean I understand css if anything I dont understand how wordpress is put together. If anything I came from using cuteftp as my CMS and now to have something more semantic and better organized I’m starting from scratch. WP is beautiful built but it’s also a pain if your someone who is used to just building his own stuff from scratch.

    CuteFTP is not a CMS, it’s an FTP client. Unless you mean something else by “CMS”, which I’m not even able to guess at.

    As far as WP being a “pain” goes: I’ve been developing software for a very long time and I can tell you that WP is very easy to work with. Generally, the only people who tend to have trouble coming to grips with the WP architecture are the ones who are in a hurry to “just get it up and running” and don’t care to invest much time in the basics.

    Stick with it, it’s a good investment.

    sorry I meant cuteNEWS not lol FTP I mean it’s not a pain and I was in a rush to get it up and running after a few hours I get how it’s setup and it’s getting easier to configure the things I want out of it.
