Changing colors for links
I have a blog, http://boatandwater.com, and the front page is used as a photo sharing page using NextGen as the gallery plugin. I would like to change the color of the "previous" and "next" navigation functions below each gallery but cannot because it seems they are linked to the "links" options for the whole site. If I change the links option, then my "rss" and "email" links in the header change, and I would like to keep them the same. Is it possible to change the navigation buttons in the posts seperately? I cannot find this option to save my life.

You should get the FireBug extension for FireFox and examine the code to find the ID's and classes that apply. Then you can code some CSS and put it in the CSS Inserts option

There is a style section in the NexGen Gallery settings. You can probably change the next and previous link styles there.

Thanks, I have been trying to edit the styles section in NextGen but I have not found the magic terminology to make it work.

I don't know these options that you mention, Firebug and Firefox. I am too much of a novice.

Firefox is a browser, firebug is an extension for that browser

When it comes to styling a website knowing CSS is very important. Atahualpa gives you some places to make changes and other themes may give you other options but to style a complete site knowing CSS and Firebug together are skills I could not live without.

Simply do in-line styling.

<a href="#" style="put your styling here" >Link</a>

jennnex05 - inline styling won't work since the code is created by the NEXTGEN plugin
