[SOLVED] How to change color of "leave a comment" and category?
At the end of each post, the "leave a comment" and category tags are in gray. How do I change that to a brighter color? Also, how to change it to a larger font size?

From what I understand from the forums, I have to add a CSS insert? Can someone give you advice on the code to use? Or formula for the code?

(I'm a total newbie) Thanks!

Also, how do I change the color of the light gray bar that separates the different posts?

The light gray bar is probably a border on the post. Go to ATO>Style Posts & Pages and look for a border on the post container.

For the leave a comment area look in the same are in the Footer box for a background (it is probably #eeeeee) and change it.

I found this -- exactly what what I need -- by search. Thanks. 3 questions. What is "#eeeeee" called so I can find a color chart somewhere. I am familiar with the codes that use 2 numbers but not this. :confused: Duh!

The other thing I'd like to do if possible, is to have the first few comments show up below the post. I have things set to show the whole post, they are too short, esp with the picture to do read more. I'd like to show a comment or two to encourage others. I'm told this is a theme issue.

I am using ver. 3.4.9 which I tried to update before beginning the blog but for some reason Wordpress didn't not like the new zip file I tried to install. If I were to upgrade would I lose all my settings?

The blog which I am doing for a friend is here: http://www.tarotverbatim.com
I am completely new to this, and the excellent menu you have (with the defaults shown) gave me this wonderful result. Amazing! You guys rock. :)

This is what is called hijacking a thread. You make a comment and then ask three questions not related to the thread.

Go read the FAQ forum and see if some of your questions are answered then if it is a new question, open a thread so others could find it doing a search.

I could use a hand on this topic (the original topic).
I've received feedback that the light gray text for comments is much too light.
I would like to change the colour of the text "comments" but keep the colour of the borders the same colour (light grey).
Is there any way to accomplish this?

Look in ATO>Style Posts & Pages. There are several boxes there to style the footer for posts.

Thanks Larry
I would like to keep everything but the "comments" light gray - any ideas on how to change just the single word?

juggledad Jan 3, 2011 07:19 PM

do you mean the link 'Leave a Comment'

Sustainable PF Jan 3, 2011 07:52 PM

Hi juggledad,
When i'm on my home page at the bottom of the post I see "10 Comments". It was a light gray (I made the whole section darker a few hrs ago). I would like to change the "10 Comments" to the current dark grey and leave the rest of the text (the tags, category, edit trackback etc) light gray - but I can't figure out how to use multiple colours.

edit: yes, I see the "Leave a Comment" on a post with no comments - I would like that text to be dark grey and all the text to the right of that text to be light grey.

lmilesw Jan 3, 2011 10:14 PM

The best way to figure out that kind of stuff is to use Firebug with Firefox. For instance I just used it to determine the selector for "Comments" is .comments-link so the code to change just that text would be something like the following.
HTML Code:

.comments-link {
color: #aaa !important;

Sustainable PF Jan 4, 2011 06:07 AM

Hi Larry,
Where would this code change be made then? Which file?

juggledad Jan 4, 2011 07:01 AM

put it in ATO->Add HTML/CSS Inserts->CSS Inserts

Sustainable PF Jan 4, 2011 07:37 AM

Thanks very much to you both. The comments are now a new colour.
