Misty Look feeds

    Hi,

    Is there any way I can get rid of the Posts and Comments Feeds icons in the header for the Misty Look Theme? Or is there any way I can give it my the url I burned over at feedburner? I would like to do this because I want to track my feed statistics. Or can anybody suggest any other way of tracking my feed statistics?

    Thanks.

    Those icons are hard coded into the theme and without a CSS upgrade, they cannot be hidden. In terms of displaying your feedburner icon, I would create a text widget and display it in your sidebar. It seems there are quite a few partial to using feedburner to keep track of their feed stats. The FAQ has a great article on “text widgets” and how to go about creating one if you are not sure what I am talking about.

    I don’t mind buying a CSS upgrade, but I can’t seem to get rid of the icons when I try fiddling with the CSS to test it out (I know this is not saved, but it looks the same when I preview it). Anybody mind telling me which part of the CSS code to remove please?

    #126465

    This is what I’ve taken out from the CSS, but when I preview it, the feed icons are still there. Please help me if you know how to fix this, I’ll really appreciate it. Thanks.

    #feedarea {
    padding:10px 10px 0 0;
    float: right;
    text-align: right;
    }
    html #feedarea {
    padding-top: 10px;
    }
    #feedarea dl dt {
    display: inline;
    margin-right: 5px;
    height: 45px;
    }
    #feedarea dl dd {
    display: inline;
    margin-right: 5px;
    height: 45px;
    background:url(img/icon_feed.gif) no-repeat left center;
    padding-left:16px;
    }

    Rather than remove tose sections from the CSS try putting in (or modifying where it’s already there)

    display: none;

    That should tell the system that they are not to be displayed.

    Hi cornell,

    That worked beautifully!

    I shall update whether it still works after I’ve bought the CSS upgrade.

    Thanks heaps.

    #126469

    It work! Thank you for helping.

    Hi again,

    I’ve followed Cornell’s advice and added display:none; to

    #feedarea {
    padding:10px 10px 0 0;
    float: right;
    text-align: right;
    display: none;
    }
    html #feedarea {
    padding-top: 10px;
    display: none;
    }
    #feedarea dl dt {
    display: inline;
    margin-right: 5px;
    height: 45px;
    display: none;
    }

    #feedarea dl dd {
    display: inline;
    margin-right: 5px;
    height: 45px;
    background:url(img/icon_feed.gif) no-repeat left center;
    padding-left:16px;
    display: none;
    }

    I also added the url of my header image to

    #headerimage {
    clear:both;
    background:#fff url(‘http://strawberrymilkmama.files.wordpress.com/2007/07/smilk.jpg’) no-repeat 0 0;
    color:#fff;
    height:200px;
    margin:10px;
    }

    and it seemed to work ok at first.

    Then suddenly the rounded top corners of all my sidebar boxes became pointy. What’s going on? How can I fix it?

    #126627

    Gee, now even the shadows around images that i post up have disappeared (I use two image buttons that link to elsewhere at the bottom of each post). The shadows were part of the original CSS. And I haven’t fiddled with anything else except those I mentioned above. So where have they gone?

    Some CSS expert, please help?

    I’m seeing some image strangeness on my own blog today, and I don’t have the upgrade. I’m wondering if this isn’t a WP.com back end issue; I think they’re tinkering with something.

    #126633

    Thanks raincoaster. That puts me more at ease (to know that I possibly didn’t wreck my own blog). I hope it works out then. Will update.

    But if there really is a problem with my CSS codes, please do let me know anyone. Thanks again.

    I see this in your sidebar and you need to remove it immediately.

    Hi timethief,

    I didn’t know that. I’m quite new here. I’ve removed it as requested. Thanks for alerting me, and sorry for violating the rules. I do apologise.

    Hmm, my images’ shadows are still missing and so are the rounded top corners of my sidebar boxes. Is this still a WP.com thing or is it my CSS? Help, anyone?

    No problem. Many new bloggers assume wordpress.com has the same policies as other free blog hosts. Good luck with your css editing. :)

    #126665

    Ooh, timethief, I just clicked on your name and visited your blog. You’re using the Misty theme too! And your image shadows and sidebar boxes’ top corners are showing up ok. Any idea what’s up with mine?

    I really don’t know. However, I like the square corners on yours better than the rounded corners on mine … lol … :)

    Also note that your “Sale” page has to go too.
    You cannot use a wordpress.com blog to advertise products and transact business on.

    Are you sure that hiring a web host and downloading free standing software from http://wordpress.org will not meet your needs?

    The differences between wordpress.com and wordpress.org are found in the sticky post titled “Please read me first” https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic.php?id=3700

    In a nutshell:
    You can import the content of a wordpress.com blog into a wordpress.org template.
    With a wordpress.org template you can edit the underlying template and not just the style sheet.
    You can also advertise and conduct business on a wp.org blog.

    #126668

    Got rid of the sale page too. No problem.

    Ah, I’ve already paid for the CSS upgrade so I’m rather determined to stay here, at least for the time being. Thanks for the WP.org heads up though, I’ll be keeping it in mind.

    And sadly, I like rounded corners better. And images shadows too. Sigh.

    Image shadows
    I have used this theme on 3 blogs for some time now and I have never seen nor desired to have “image shadows” around my images. I can’t see any images on your blog. Please provide a link so I know what you are talking about.

    BTW if you are reading the features of the MistyLook theme on the designer’s website then know this. When themes designed to run on wordpress.org software are adapted for use on wordpress.com’s multi-user platform they do not have all the features the original wordpress.org version has.

    #126675

    It’s the shadow around your addit button below every post. I have the same button, plus another button (saying TOMORROW) but there’s no shadows around them.

    #126676

    The thing is strangely the theme seems to run fine on other wordpress.com’s users’ blogs. And it used to run fine on mine too, until I purchased the CSS upgrade and added the stuff to the CSS I gave above.
