    Hi –

    You assisted me in the past in removing and replacing the branches that are in the right sidebar.Thank you! I was wondering if it’s possible to remove/replace the little branch that is at the bottom of every post. I’d love if this could be my three floating hearts instead of the branches.

    My second question is how to change the color of links on my site. Right now it is a light blue and I’d love a little bit deeper blue so that the links stand out a bit more.

    Thanks for your help.

    The blog I need help with is kristinkellnermusic.wordpress.com

    My second question is how to change the color of links on my site. Right now it is a light blue and I’d love a little bit deeper blue so that the links stand out a bit more.

    To change the link colour within posts and pages, try this CSS:

    .entry-content a {
    color: #xxxxxx;
    }

    You can replace the x’s with any hex colour you like.

    I was wondering if it’s possible to remove/replace the little branch that is at the bottom of every post. I’d love if this could be my three floating hearts instead of the branches.

    Here are the steps to do that. First, you’ll need to create a graphic that’s about the same size as the branches, which is 30 pixels wide by 21 pixels high, as you can see here:

    Then, add this to your custom CSS, replacing http://path/to/your/image.png with the real full path to your image, which you can grab from the Media Library.

    footer.entry-meta:before {
    background: url('http://path/to/your/image.png') no-repeat scroll 0% 0% transparent;

    Just let me know if you need further help.

    The change of the little branches was tricky because it is such a small graphic so I had to play around with it a bit. But the instructions you provided were clear and worked and I’m happy with the results. Thanks!

    At first I couldn’t get the link color change to work using the codes from the hex color link you provided. Not sure if I was doing that right.

    It did work when I chose a color by going to posts and using the text color change tool, selecting a color and using that code. (Haha probably basic color codes that web professionals know by heart :)

    So it did work out. Thanks, again!!

    Glad you got it all working. The little heart is extremely cute!

    I’ll mark this thread as resolved and close it, but feel free to start a new one if you need help with anything else.
