How can I remove the the top right button of 'subscribe' from the theme 'The Mor

    How can I remove the the top right button of ‘subscribe’ from the theme ‘The Morning After’? I don’t want readers to be using it. This is the default RSS button from the theme, and I want to remove to put my own through feedbruner.

    Any ideas how to remove it? I couldn’t find anywhere, as this seems part of the default theme.

    By the way, I like this theme, but I hate how it puts the ‘quotations’, really ugly. I like the quotation to be sided by a vertical line.

    The blog I need help with is lebanonspring.com.

    Hi. You can turn that button off through Appearance > Theme Options.

    As for the quotations format, it’s theme-dependent. If you don’t like how The Morning After displays the quotations, you can either:
    – switch to another theme
    – change the format for all quotations via the Custom Design upgrade and a good knowledge of the CSS language
    – manually change the code for each and every quotation (by coding HTML each time)

    Thanks a lot. I don’t know HTML, do you have an easy fix for a vertical line on the left of a quotation paragraph?

    … in some themes blockquotes are graced with all sorts of decorative frills, which you may or may not like. If you don’t, you can have plain-looking blockquotes by using the padding code again, in this case for both sides of the text:

    <div style="padding-left:25px;padding-right:25px;">
    TEXT HERE
    </div>

    “Vertical line on the left of a quotation paragraph” easy to do. How thick? What color? What else changed in relation to the standard blockquote in TMA? Smaller font, I’m sure, but how small? And then? bold or not? italics or not? indented or not? different font color or not?

    oy! Sorry, I misread the OP’s question: thought the idea was to get rid of a vertical line in blockquotes rather than adding one. Did not mean to cause confusion…

    Vertical line: 2mm thick, dark-ish blue line. indented text. Everything else is standard text (no bold or italics, or different font)

    2mm is not an internet measurement. But this might do for you:

    <div style="margin-left:25px;padding-left:10px;padding-right:25px;border-left:4px solid #3a6999;">
    TEXT HERE
    </div>

    You can adjust the margin of the indent to 0 (delete the margin-left code). margin now 25px as an indent
    You can adjust the padding: how far from the left vertical line the quote will be. 10px now
    You can adjust how thick the vertical line is. 4px now

    Is the color of the vertical line ok?

    Here is a link to lorem ipsum so you can test out how this looks without having to type in a bunch of text of your own:

    Note that the color Tess wisely chose is one of the colors your theme already uses, so you’d better like it!

    Oh, the rainbow of all the colors in this life… <3 <3 <3

    I hope this is a better answer than my previous one!
