Change font style for specific link item (Oulipo)

  1. Me again,

    On my blog http://astroaficionado.net, I have the following set-up for links (using the Oulipo theme)

    .entry a, .navigation a {
    	color: #000;
    text-decoration: underline;
    
    }
    
    a:hover {
    background-color: #4f4f4f;
    }

    I also have the Daring Fireball linked list plugin set up, adds a glyph at the end of my "linked list" posts (as seen on the first post on the blog with the diamond)

    My problem is, I don't want this glyph to have the same style as the general links on my bog. More precisely, I don't want the black hover background, the underline, and I want the hover-over colour to be blue (don't have a specific hex code off the top of my head).

    Here is the part of index.php containing the permalink glyph code:

    <div class="entry">
              <?php { if ( function_exists('add_theme_support')) the_post_thumbnail( 'post-thumbnail' ); } ?>
              <?php the_content('» Read the rest of this entry «'); ?><?php if (is_linked_list()): ?>
      <h6><a href="<?php the_linked_list_link() ?>" title="Link to <?php the_title_attribute(); ?>"><?php the_permalink_glyph(); ?></a></h6>
    <?php endif; ?>

    Any help is very appreciated. Hope I was clear enough.

    The blog I need help with is astroaficionado.wordpress.com.

  2. I’m sorry but that blog is not a free blog from and being free hosted by wordpress.COM so we cannot help you with it. WordPress.COM blogs and wordpress.org installs operate on different code. Here at wordpress.COM all CSS editing is theme specific and we cannot access and edit templates or themes files. As our templates are shared on this multi-user blogging platform only Staff cannot access and edit the underlying PHP and HTML as every edit they make affects all blogs wearing the same theme. We do not have FTP access to wordpress.COM blogs and we cannot upload individual plugins into them. The version of the theme you are working with Oulipo is not the same as our version.

    The correct support forum to get support for that blog is here > http://wordpress.ORG/support

    For more clarity please read the sticky post at the head of this forum or the summary provided by Staff in the support documentation.

  3. My bad! Didn't realize the distinction.

  4. Best wishes with your wordpress.ORG install.
