Reddle theme - multiple questions re width, colour, comments icon & linkedIN

  1. Hi. I would like to adjust the format of my Reddle themed blog. Ideally I would like my main content area to be wider and my sidebar area to be narrower. How do I do this?

    Also I would ideally like to have any comments made on my blogs to be automatically published to a linkedin group - is this possible on the free wordpress hosted option?

    Also on the front page of my blog the summaries of my blogs appear with a black background behind the summary text. How do I change this?

    And finally, I find the comments icon to be not clearly identifiable enough. I have had several users send me emails about not being able to see the comments icon. Can I change the icon that is used or the colour of it?

  2. Also I would ideally like to have any comments made on my blogs to be automatically published to a linkedin group - is this possible on the free wordpress hosted option?

    No

    I'm not sure if it's helpful since you mentioned comments, but you can automatically publish posts (not comments) to LinkedIn and that might be something you're interested in. See this help page for details and examples:

  5. Also on the front page of my blog the summaries of my blogs appear with a black background behind the summary text. How do I change this?

    I used the built in browser web inspector to find all of the selectors that adjust those colors, made a big list of them, and applied one set of color changes to everything I found. You can use this as a starting point:

    .indexed .format-image .entry-image,
    .indexed .format-image .entry-header,
    .indexed .format-image .entry-summary,
    .indexed .format-image .entry-summary a,
    .indexed .format-image .entry-title a:hover,
    .indexed .format-image .entry-title a:focus,
    .indexed .format-image .entry-title a:active,
    .indexed .format-image .taxonomy-links,
    .indexed .format-image .edit-link,
    .indexed .format-image .taxonomy-links a:hover,
    .indexed .format-image .taxonomy-links a:focus,
    .indexed .format-image .taxonomy-links a:active,
    .indexed .format-image .edit-link a:hover,
    .indexed .format-image .edit-link a:focus,
    .indexed .format-image .edit-link a:active {
    	background: #fff;
    	color: #444;
    }

    Adjust the colors as needed. If you want to adjust colors for individual elements, pull them out into separate CSS blocks.

  6. Can I change the icon that is used or the colour of it?

    Here is an example you can start with:

    .comments-link a {
    	background: teal;
    }
    .comments-link a:before {
    	border-color: transparent transparent transparent teal;
    }

    Change "teal" to a color code of your choice.
