sidebar issues

4 posts in this topic

A couple of sidebar issues.........

Hyperlinks - I can't see how to highlight links and email addresses with the primary colour. Your demo sites for Profound and Decent display highlighted llinks in the sidebar but these disappear as soon a the Style Switcher is deployed. Plenty of examples on my 2 sites (Profound and Decent respectively) eg:

http://treadsoftly.net/sustainable-development-goals/

http://waitingtocreditmarvels.net/january-2012-curious-month-oxfams-woes/

Archives widget - the title "archives" is duplicated in the wordpress standard archives widget. See the 2nd example above.

Hello Bill,

Hyperlinks: Do you want to highlight the hyperlink links on your site when mouseover?

Archives Widget: Please add the following to Appearance -> Theme Options -> Custom CSS.

.widget_archive label {
  display: none;
}
.widget_archive select {
  margin-top: 20px;
}

Kind Regards.

thanks for prompt reply. The archives widget is now good, thanks.

On hyperlinks, no, I'm not looking for mouseover highlighting. I'm looking for conventional highlighting. Links in the main body text are fine but, in the sidebar, there are situations where a link is not highlighted at all. For example, in the blog site http://waitingtocreditmarvels.net/ , which uses Decent, the top sidebar widget contains the text "treadsoftly.net". This is a hyperlink but it isn't highlighted in any way. The same is true for the email address, although less important.

There are similar examples in my other site which uses Profound.
