    Well, at the moment... my site is having two problems. I don't know how to fix them.

    First one: How do I remove the " This entry was posted on Tuesday, May 17th, 2005..." box from the comment page? Check here: http://www.xeenat.com/wordpress/?p=6#comments

    Second one: Whenever I search something, I want to get rid off the message I get. It messed up the sidebar. Please check here:

    I'd like to thank you guys in advance for help. It will be greatly appreciated by this guy who is new to WordPress and PHP.

    1. It should be in your single.php or comments.php
    2. It should be in the sidebar.php (look for if search...)

    1. Got it removed from single.php, but there's another line there now which starts like this : " You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site."

    If I try to get rid of it, I get an error and the page won't display. What do I do now?

    2. Fixed. Thanks. :)

    Also by chance, do you know how to use pixel fonts on a website? I know images is one way. Is there any other way? Thanks.

    What do you mean "use pixel fonts"? You mean how to define the font size on your site/page?
    Everything is in the style.css file. Maybe it's not px but em or something else.

    Okay, forget about the pixel font thing. :)

    But do you know how I can remove this line from the comment page: " You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site."

    If I try to get rid of it in the single.php file, I get an error and the page won't display. :S

    Thank you.

    Thank you podz. I've got rid of that sentence, but do you know how to remove that grey bar (if not, then I'll just leave it)? And how do I change the color of the boxes on the comment page? I'm modding the Kubrick template just to let you know.

    Thank you podz. :)

    I'll try looking for it, but if anybody can tell me where it is, it'll be easier. :)

    Thank you.

    Try removing this:

    <p class="postmetadata alt">
    <small>
    </small>
    </p>

    About the comment boxes on the comment page : http://www.xeenat.com/wordpress/?p=6#comment-4

    I tried to change the colors of the boxes, but then all of them become one color for some reason. Is there anyway I can change the color of the grey boxes? And when someone leaves the next comment, leave them white?

    Looks like you've got it handled, yes?

    Not really. I can't change the color of the grey boxes. If I do, all of them become the same color. See, I want it this way. First comment has white background, second comment has any color I want. And so on... see the pattern?

    Thank you.

    OK so, taking this as an example page. Look at the source of the page as rendered by your browser and you'll see that Bilal's first comment, on grey, has a class of "alt" while Habz' comment is on white, and its class is ""

    Assigning these classes to comments is handed in comments.php by this bit of code:

    <?php
    if ('alt' == $oddcomment) $oddcomment = '';
    else $oddcomment = 'alt';
    ?>

    Actually, instead of my trying to explain it all, I think you're better off reading this tutorial on working with $oddcomment from ColdForged, which should empower you to do everything you want to with your comment display and more.

    Good Luck!

    mumkin is overcomplicating it :)
    But s/he almost gave you the solution by saying the "grey comments" are in a class called alt
    So, all you have to do now is to find
    .alt {
    background-color: #f8f8f8;
    border-top: 1px solid #ddd;
    border-bottom: 1px solid #ddd;
    }

    in your stylesheet and change the bgcolor. Don't you love the simplicity of CSS? ;)
