Coraline – green hover

  • Author
  • #586834


    Hello, I did: I tried to find out how to kick out the gren hover of my headlines
    Lately I found out that the hover comes not from my CSS, but from the Theme “Coraline”.
    I checked one a similar theme but it has green hover to.
    you know, how I can change the coraline into a theme which has
    other more neutral hover-colors?


    The blog I need help with is


    We need a link to the blog you are talking about so that we can take a look.


    I just set one of my test blogs to coraline and this should do it.

    h1 a:hover, h2 a:hover, h3 a:hover {
    color: #009900;


    yes thank you, I found the color out too by asking my photoshop and searching. But in priniciple – I cannot change the coraline theme? its fixed, I cannot enter into the CSS of the Coroline theme, is this right isnt it? I think the answer ist yes?
    The question is, is there an alternative which has a similiar division/segmentation?

    I thought there is no specific need to look at the blog, because I talk about the specific coraline segmentation but if you like to see the colordesaster you can look at .

    I lost my contact to the css-world a bit because nobody of my mates has an idea of this stuff and my course is long ago, so I`m staying on a poor level :)
    and all this forums are in english…

    thank you


    There are a good number of foreign language wordpress forums. Hopefully there is one in your language.

    At wordpress.COM, you do not edit the existing CSS since this is a multi-user platform meaning we all share the same base files. What you do is add the specific selectors, and the specific declarations that you are adding or changing to the CSS edit window and make sure that “add to existing…” is selected before saving or previewing. Your CSS changes are then loaded after the original CSS and override the existing declarations.

    If you add what I have above to the CSS edit window (after deleting all the informational text in it) and change the hex color code to your chosen color, that will override the existing color.



    thanx, it didnt work. The reason must be that my upgrade css abo stopped without warning, green in the hover as ever....I think I should change to a "normal" hosted website, a website, which can be directly found by a www.-adress. If I would be more courageous I would stop all this and start with XXampp and a new provider, but ... Im anxious about running this unknown tools and the uploading process things and all this adventures :)… I should ask the wp-team, if it stops without warning.


    I used Firebug on Firefox to enter the exact code I have above and it works. Did you change the hex color code? The hex color code in the code I have above was not changed from the original green. You have to find the color code you want to use and then replace the color code in the code I gave you.



    No it didn`t change. I can put inside every other color code existing, it remains in green. I think the reason is, that my CSS Abo has been running out and I have no rights to change. But in the preview it does not change too. Or should I delete other items in the CSS?


    Yes, delete everything else in the CSS edit window, make sure that the “add to existing…” button is selected and then add in the above with your own color code, or just on the of chance something else is overriding it, use the code below with the !important attribute.

    h1 a:hover, h2 a:hover, h3 a:hover {
    color: #009900 !important;

    Also with the preview function on the CSS page, sometimes it won’t work exactly right. After clicking preview, if the color does not show, force refresh the preview page.



    I wrote my first blog post and my page said it was auto-saved, but I cannot find it…it was brilliant…….any help here?


    Ummm, please do not hijack threads with different topics. It causes confusion. Please start a new thread on the subject.

    Did you “publish” it? If you go to the the listing of posts in the dashboard, is it listed there? What was the title of the post?



    Sorry, not familiar with protocol. Introduction was the title



    And no I had not published it yet, it wasnt finished. But I cannot find where it was auto saved to
