Support » Theme: Twenty Ten » Need to change the color of Tags and Categories Links

  • Hello,

    As title states: I need to change the color of Tags and Categories links. I don’t want to change the link color of any other link of my blog. Only the color of Title and Links of Tags and Categories.

    I am novice, so please inform in a little detail. I want these changes to be permanent. So even when I update the wordpress or theme, they remain intact.

    Thanks so much in advance

    without a link to your site, nobody will be able to comment on your problem.

    So even when I update the wordpress or theme, they remain intact.

    start by creating a child theme of Twenty Ten to work with; http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    for general formatting problems, try working with a browser inspection tool such as Firefox’ add-on Firebug to investigate which styles you need to edit;
    or ask at a css forum http://csscreator.com/forum

    if u hv a little knowledge of css, you can get make it yourself by using firefox + it’s add once “firebug”.

    Thanks

    thanks for the reply.

    The website is scholarships-for-women.org On the Right Sidebar you see two widgets. I want to change the color of links of Tags and Categories(currently blue) , as well as the Title of these widgets(which is currently black)

    Note: I tried firebugs, but no luck.

    http://www.w3schools.com/css/css_link.asp

    .widget_tag_cloud a { color: red; }
    .widget_tag_cloud a:visited { color: green; }
    .widget_tag_cloud a:hover { color: orange; }

    this will change the links of ‘tags’ and ‘categories’;

    if you need separate colors, you need to make the formats more specific;

    for the ‘tags’:
    #tag_cloud-2.widget_tag_cloud a { ... }
    etc

    for the ‘categories’:
    #tag_cloud-3.widget_tag_cloud a { ... }
    etc

    I want these changes to be permanent.

    if you don’t want to create a child theme to work with, consider using one of the custom css plugins http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php?q=custom+css, or the custom css section of the ‘jetpack’ plugin, to add the new styles.

    Thanks Alchymyth,

    Is it possible that I also able to change the Title of “Tag” and “Categories” widget to change into some other color, while the title of all other widget remains black?

    The code he gave you should do that. The tag_cloud-2 and tag_cloud-3 are specific to those titles only.

    Did you try it?

    @ WPyogi

    yes they are working fine except, the title of the widgets. what is the css code for the title of Tag Cloud widget?

    The code alchymyth posted is what you need to change the color of the widget titles. I don’t see that code anywhere in your CSS code.

    And as he also said, unless you use a Child Theme or a custom CSS plug-in, your changes will not be saved when WP is updated.

    start by integrating the already given suggestions.

    helping with fine tuning formatting is not within the main scope of this forum;

    either ask at a css forum http://csscreator.com/forum
    or try to work with a browser inspection tool to find out which styles are responsible for formatting those widget titles.

    Please check it now:

    You can see I successfully changed the color of links in both ‘tag’ and ‘categories’ but I am still unable to change the color of Title

    Is there a way I can remove this Title completely?

    thanks for you help
