    How do I add color and a nice box to my “more tags”

    #1303503

    Hi there,

    I’m not exactly clear on which part of your site you are referring to.

    Could you make a screenshot and upload it to your media library?

    Also, if you can provide a link to the page/post that you are looking to change, that will help as well.

    I loaded a screen shot under “webpage”. The link is at –http://tulsaallergynews.com/2013/06/10/pork-cat-connection/

    Instead of the “continue reading”, I would like to be able to create a blue box with “read more” or something I can customize. Thanks much.

    Hi there,

    You could add something like this to your site’s CSS using the Customize feature:

    a.more-link {
    
    /*This determines the color behind the "continue reading" link.*/
    background:#69D2E7; 
    
    /*This provides a little spacing above/below (1px) and left/right (3px) of your link.*/
    padding:1px 3px;  
    
    /*This creates a border with a slightly different blue color.*/
    border:solid 2px #54a7b7;
    }

    Feel free to change it to suit your needs.

    You can find more color options by searching the web for “hexadecimal colors”.

    You won’t however be able to change the text “continue reading” to say anything different. This is coded into the theme and cannot be changed.
