chaoticsoul – All posts “highlighted”

  • Author
  • #267694



    I’m having a little trouble figuring out how to get all of my posts to be highlighted (for lack of a better word).

    I’m currently using the chaoticsoul theme, and everytime I post something new, the prior post gets “smaller” in font size, loses the original background color and the quote area also changes.

    I really don’t know the terminology, so I don’t know if I managed to explain the issue. Basically, I would like for all the posts to be similar, both in size and design. I searched through both this forum and the FAQ, but couldn’t find anything related.

    Hopefully someone can make sense of this.



    I’m not seeing any missing tags or anything, but the problem might be in this block of text. From the code I’m seeing in it it appears like it may have been copied and pasted from either the web or another program such as MS Word. That will cause issues.

    Open your latest post for edit and go into the HTML tab and take out the <span style="font-style: normal;"> at the beginning of the lines, and then the </span> from the end of the lines.

    Then if you need some lines italicized, highlight them and use the italics button on the toolbar.


    Oops, forgot to include the block of text where I think the problem is.

    What have you been photographing here today, Eggleston?
    ‘Well, I’ve been photographing democratically.’
    But what have you been taking pictures of?
    ‘I’ve been outdoors, nowhere, in nothing.’
    What do you mean?
    ‘Well, just woods and dirt, a little asphalt here and there.’

    That is the way that theme is designed.


    Thanks for correcting me Vivian. I never knew that about chaoticsoul.

    @draumen, ignore everything I said.

    {now where did I put that rock I crawl under… I know it was here a minute ago}



    Yeah – I use Chaotic Soul for one of my blogs and it was a question I asked early one. Don’t worry about that rock – I’m sure I’ll be under there with you soon enough :)



    Thanks for taking the time to help out!

    So then there is no way of changing this in the CSS stylesheet?



    I assume the blog you are talking about is this one (Consider linking your blog in your username –

    It might be possible in CSS, but I don’t see where you have the CSS upgrade. Try it before buying unless you are adept at CSS since there is no official support for it and only a few people here know a lot about it.

    Do a search here in the forums – you might find a way to do it. Nothing jumps out at me in the CSS that allows you to alter it.



    draumen, try this in the css preview:

    .sticky, .top { background: #161410; }



    ok, colour & text:

    .sticky, .top { background: #161410; }

    .top .entry { font-size: 1.0em; }



    Thanks xanthippe!

    After doing that all the posts became similar, but it was the latest entry that matched the previous entries. I would like it to be the other way around.

    But, I managed to locate the whereabouts of those codes you posted. And after some trying and failing I found that under the “.sticky, .top” section there was one called “.lastfive” which I assumed meant the older entries. Then I copied the codes which were categorized under the “.sticky, top” section and pasted it under “.lastfive” resulting in:

    .lastfive { padding: 15px 10px 0px; background: #1b1814; margin-bottom: 15px; border-bottom: 1px solid #35302a; }

    And now all the older entries have the same background color as the latest one.

    I’m still having a little trouble figuring out how to make the font in the older entries the same size (1.1em) as in the latest entry though.

    Again, sorry for the mess. I’m really new to this whole CSS-business and don’t know anything about the terminology behind it. So it is very hard for me to explain the problem.



    Add the font-size: 1.1em; to “last five”.



    @ draumen
    oops! sorry, got that mixed up.
