Support » Themes and Templates » 'Simplest' Theme: problems with comment link, date, and browser compatibility

  • Resolved chez-victoria


    I am new to WordPress so I’m sorry if any of these questions are silly! I would appreciate any help!

    I am using the ‘Simplest’ theme and am trying to customise it on my own. I was trying to customise the newer themes like ‘Twenty Eleven’ but it was too complicated for me to understand the codes haha. This is my website.

    1. How do I add “Leave a Comment” links at the bottom of every post on the main page, ie where all the latest posts are shown

    2. Why is my date not white despite me coding it to be white
    h2 {font-family:Courier New, Courier, FreeMono, monospace!important; color:#fff!important; padding:.4em; letter-spacing:3px; background-color:#F5E2E4; display:inline; margin-bottom:7px; padding-bottom:5px;}

    3. How do I make the spacing between the top of post to the date regular? The space on the first post seems to be different from the rest.

    4. Hahaha it looks horrible in IE, is there any way I can change that?

  • As you can see here that theme is pretty outdated and may have problems. You’d be better off finding a current theme.

    On the color, those are links so you have to change this CSS:

    a, a:link, a:visited {
        color: #BBBBBB;
        font-weight: lighter;
        text-decoration: none;

    The space is because of the bottom margin in this — the top post does not have another post above it that has that margin.

    .hentry {
        border-bottom: 10px solid #F0F0F0;
        margin-bottom: 2em;
        padding: 20px;

    IE — who knows – looks like there is CSS code that IE may not like.
