    Hi first let me say thank you for all the support I have received so far here in this forum. I have 2 more things I need to change in my stylesheet and then I think I am done…fingers crossed. I have spent 2 days looking through the Press Row stylesheet (I think I am going blind from the small print) trying to locate the date and the filed under and tagged gifs so I can change their color. Is it possible to do this or am I on a wild goose hunt. I am a css newbie so please bear with me…I tried to do it but I am a little lost at this point. Can someone point me in the right direction. Is it possible to change the fonts in any of these themes or does that not fall under editing.

    The blog I need help with is passionsandsoapboxes.com.

    I can’t help you, but WOW, I love what you’ve done to Pressrow. I never liked that theme, but your work on it is very impressive.

    Add a “color” definition to the ” p.tagged ” section.

    p.tagged {
    color: yourcolorchoicehere;
    }

    Thanks Carocat. Listen something strange just happened. I posted todays blog which has a numbered list and the number 8 keeps coming out a smiley face when I post. Not in my dashboard though just when I post. Can anyone explain this…is it something I did. I can’t get rid of it.

    Thank you for the tip sacred path I will try that. Do you know how I change the color on the date.

    Carocat the background isn’t my work, it was done by “The Background Fairy” who has them for free on her website. You just paste the code into your stylesheet. I am not capable of doing anything like that yet. I was surprised it worked because most things like this won’t inside wordpress.com. I think it looks nice though. There is a link on my page under favorite links if you want to check it out.

    You can disable smileys meaning they won’t auto convert to the images and just remain as characters. http://support.wordpress.com/smilies/

    Also, did you manually write the list or did you use the ordered list formatting as I believe it doesn’t occur with the latter.

    Nope, it’s not, just your bog standard somewhat hidden wp.com option! ;)

    I turned off smileys a long time ago, I never liked it if a random icon appeared in a post in the rare occurence I used a smiley.

    Still looking for some code that will change the date color. I know it is in here somewhere.

    #355096

    The date color is h4. Add a color definition as you did with p.tagged .

    Ha! I just wrote my first code and it worked. I have just been copying from the stylesheet and pasting into the css editor to change minor things like color and font size. This feels so good… I accomplished something I didn’t think I could do. Thanks guys

    You did a very nice job and you should feel good about it.

    Guess what I need help again. I am trying to change the color of the date inside the comments. I can’t figure out the code. Someone please help me.

    #355197

    It’s here ” .comment_meta a, .comment_meta a:visited, .comment_meta a:hover ”

    Once again you come to the rescue. I had been looking at that but for some reason I did not think that had anything to do with the date. Thanks.

    #355199

    You’re welcome.

    May I suggest (I’m letting out one of my secrets) that if you are using Firefox, that you install the Firebug addon. That is what I use to quickly figure out where things are controlled in the CSS, and to actually try out changes on the fly before I post solutions here in the forums. It makes me look a lot better than I actually am with CSS.

    I am trying to change the color for the number of comments on the same page. Is the code located in the same area of the stylesheet.
