Needing to make changes in comet

    I want my side bars headers to be a different color but after messing with the CSS for hours….they are still grey! Also top navigation is changed the way I want it except if you click on my about page then on that page it has reverted back to the original background……if anyone an help I would appreciate it greatly!

    The blog I need help with is


    On the about page, the tannish color is to indicate the “current” page the visitor is on. If you had more pages on your site, they those would show up white. You can add the following to your CSS, at the bottom, and edit the color, or you can change it to none or transparent if you wish.

    .menu li.current-menu-item > a, .menu li.current-menu-item > a:hover, .menu li.current_page_item > a, .menu li.current_page_item > a:hover {
    background: #D6C9A9;

    The main text for the widget titles (non-link-type) can be taken care of like this.

    .widget h2 {
    color: #7E7E7E;

    The link-type widget title colors (twitter and facebook) have a regular and a hover color which can be changed with the below (colors I have are just placeholders).

    .widget h2 a
    color: #333333;
    .widget h2 a:hover
    color: #CC0000;


    Will try right now…you are awesome thank you!



    You are genius! Worked perfectly!


    You are welcome.



    New problem….I got rid of my submit boxes by accident and I don’t know how to fix it….



    And can’t get rid of the color in the top menu


    The problem is, you have copied and pasted the entire stylesheet to your CSS edit box, and that causes relative URLs in the CSS to break. That means all images that are called in the CSS will not load.

    When doing CSS here, put only the specific selectors and only the specific declarations you are adding to changing into the CSS edit window.

    That said, what submit boxes?

    I guess you are talking about the hover color?

    .menu li:hover > a, .menu li ul li a, .menu li.current-menu-ancestor a, .menu li.current_page_ancestor a {
    background-color: #E7DBBE !important;


    No, I meant the search box in the right column…and again I apologize abt the double post I did not know if this one would be read any longer. :(


    I see the little magnifying glass image in the search box at the top of your sidebar. When you type something in and hit enter/return, it searches.

    There is a search button, but it is disabled in the original CSS so it was a theme designer decision to not use it it appears. If you want to add it back in, add the following to your CSS.

    #searchform #searchsubmit {
    display: inline;


    Thank you, your knowledge and willingness to share it is a great blessing to many.


    You are welcome and thanks.
