several tiny problems: justfiy, colors, borders
 
Hi, first I just want to say great job on this theme, it really makes it pretty easy for novices like me to get great blogs. I also donated some to the cause of atahualpa, since I think it should be the default wp theme...

Anyway, I am almost ready to publish my blog (at last) and just have a few minor tweaks I would like to do.

Instead of doing four posts, I am just going to beg for help with several tiny problems all in one post. Hopefully this way someone else can use the info.

Here goes:

1. I love how the padding looks on the images I post, but I would like to add/change a small (#333333) border around this also. I want this to be the same for every image I post, but not for the things in the sidebars. Where do I go to do this?

2. In the search bar, I have the code as such:

Search
<form method="get" class="searchform" action="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>/">
<table class="searchform" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0">
<tr>
<td class="searchfield">
<input type="text" class="text inputblur"
onfocus="this.value='<?php echo (get_search_query() ? get_search_query() : '' ); ?>'"
value="<?php echo (get_search_query() ? get_search_query() : '' ); ?>" name="s" />



</td>
<td class="searchbutton">
<input type="submit" class="button" value="Go" />
</td>
</tr></table>
</form>

I would like to change the color of the word 'search' and have it be left justified, even though the sidebar is set to centered.Also, under the word 'search' I would like to put a gray dotted line (#cccccc).

3. In my left sidebar, I want my images centered, but I would like categories and archives (at least the titles) to be left justified. Is there a simple way to do this?

4. You have given me the code for making just the arrow part of the << newer posts nav link a different color than the wording, but it is not working. I think it is because those arrows are part of the link, following the styling for links. Is there a way to unlink just the arrows, or keep them a link and still change them red? I would want the words to change on hover, but not the arrows, they should stay red always.

Sorry this is so long, please don't rush, I know you have tons of questions from newbies. Thanks again!!

See Theme Options -> Images, the settings there shouldn't affect images in sidebars

Edit searchform.php. I don't know where the word "Search" came from. Are you using a current version of Atahualpa 3?

CSS Insert:

HTML Code:

td#left img {
margin: 0 auto;
}

In index.php, replace all instances of

previous_posts_link(bfa_escape($bfa_ata_multi_next_prev_newer)) :
next_posts_link(bfa_escape($bfa_ata_multi_next_prev_older));

with

previous_posts_link($bfa_ata_multi_next_prev_newer ) :
next_posts_link($bfa_ata_multi_next_prev_older);

Replace those with previous_post_link and next_post_link (..._post_... instead of ..._posts_...) as well.

Should be 10 previous/next combinations = 20 occurrences of bfa_escape(.....)

These are left over from older theme versions and aren't needed anymore as far as I can tell right now.

After these changes the <span>...</span> technique from the other thread http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?t=595 should work
