Change Color of "Continue Reading" and "View Full Post" buttons

  • schmidtysays


    Is there anyway to change the color of the buttons that say “Continue Reading” and “View Full Post” to red?

    Blue doesn’t fit with my color scheme.

    Also see here:

    So far, I haven’t found clear instruction on how to make color changes to the menu/slider.

    It looks like this guy was able to make the change:

    I don’t know how he changed them to silver on his site, but so far changing the sprite colors hasn’t worked for me.



    Thanks I figured it out. I inserted this code into the Custom CSS section of the Graphene Display Options

    .block-button:visited {
    background: url(images/bg-block-button.png) left bottom repeat-x #660000;
    background: -moz-linear-gradient(#cc0000, #660000);
    background: -webkit-gradient(linear, 0 0, 0 bottom, from(#cc0000), to(#660000));
    background: linear-gradient(#cc0000, #660000);
    border: 1px solid #cc0000;
    -moz-border-radius: 5px;
    -webkit-border-radius: 5px;
    border-radius: 5px;
    -moz-box-shadow: 0 0 5px #555;
    -webkit-box-shadow: 0 0 5px #555;
    box-shadow: 0 0 5px #555;
    color: #fff;
    cursor: pointer;
    display: block;
    float: right;
    font: bold 12px arial;
    margin: 10px 5px 5px;
    padding: 5px 15px 6px;
    position: relative;
    text-decoration: none;
    text-shadow: 0 -1px 1px #444;

    .block-button:hover {
    background: url(images/bg-block-button-hover.png) left bottom repeat-x #460000;
    background: -moz-linear-gradient(#460000, #cc0000);
    background: -webkit-gradient(linear, 0 0, 0 bottom, from(#460000), to(#cc000));
    background: linear-gradient(#460000, #cc0000);
    color: #fff;
    cursor: pointer;
    text-decoration: none;



    Well it looks great from my Firefox 🙂

    I sometimes just Wonder if its working for all the IE versions out there.




    schmidtysays – you are the best! Thanks so much. I’ve tried every way possible to change my view post button to red. Your code did the trick! Thanks!
