format and re- position tag and category links in posts

  • carrie01


    I working on local host. I am using categories, tags and custom taxonomies with my posts. To create the custom taxonomies I have used the GD Custom Posts And Taxonomies plugin (free version). In my posts the catgory link is at at the top, the tag link at the bottom and the custom taxonomy links in the middle. I should like to position all these links in one place within the post; top or bottom I don’t mind. Then I would like to change the font and colour code the fonts eg blue for one taxonomy, red for another etc. Does anyone know if any of this is possible?



    Could you perhaps provide a link to some screenshots showing what you are trying to accomplish?



    Yes of course but I’m not sure how to give you a link to a screenshot?

    You have to post it online somewhere: twitpic, imageshack, tinypic, photobucket, imgur, etc.



    Thanks – here’s the screenshot:

    Ideally I should like to have the category, tag , level and stages links in one row and to change the colour of ‘Level’, ‘Stages’ and ‘Tags’ titles so that each is a different colour. I have looked in Firebug but can’t work out how to do this.

    You’ll probably want to scrap that plugin and do this in a Graphene action hook widget area.

    Upside: you’ll have greater control over the appearance of those links, including getting them in a single row. (Unless the plugin provides an option for that, there really isn’t a simple solution.)

    Downside: you’ll have to learn some html, a bit of php, and a couple of WordPress functions.



    Thanks. I used the plugin to create custom taxonomies. The action hooks sound a bit scary but I am obviously going to have to give them a go.
