Support » Fixing WordPress » Weirdness! Category View results in slightly altered CSS Output

  • Resolved DaveyWavey


    We’ve been breaking our heads over this one for days. We live in Jerusalem so if you help us solve this problem we will put a note in the Western Wall for you (holiest site in Judaism), or light a candle in your honor at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre (site of Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection) or make a charitable gift on your behalf at the Al Aqsa Mosque (3rd holiest site in Islam). Not a bad deal right?

    So here’s the problem. When viewing our site everything is fine except when you view by category. Thus going to the quotes category ie:

    results in a page where some links are suddenly default blue instead of the colors specified in the css file. Everything goes blue except for links in posts and links in the footer.

    Now isn’t that just the darndest thing? Any ideas? Help us out, we have a direct link to God! Though God can’t help us either. Probably too busy updating his or her blog.

    Find this..

    .category a{

    remove, or comment out as required… 😉

    No need to light any candles, i’m not a religious person…

    If you’re happy, that’s good enough for me.. 🙂

    Hmmm… there’s no .category anything in the css file. We are now going to search all the files just in case but isn’t #0066CC the default color of a link? ie what appears when a link color isn’t specified? In any case #0066CC doesn’t appear anywhere and neither does .category. See? I told you it was weirdness! But you tried so we will give some charity in your name. No big deal, a few coins, but the recipient will appreciate it. Stay tuned… we’re seriously gonna do a multi-file search of all the theme files to see if .category appears ANYWHERE. Doing it now…

    OK. So we just did the aforementioned multi-file search. No luck. Neither the string “.category” or “#0066CC” appears anywhere! Back to square 1…

    DoH! Wait! I should read before I jump to conclusions!
    It was the wp-ecommerce plugin messing with the regular site content!
    So yeah. Fixed it. Thanks t31os_ we are indeed pleased. We commented out the offending lines from the css and we are now good. The charitable donation on your behalf is now larger. We’re happy and you will make another random person happy too!


    Happy to help… 🙂
