    . . . and what about the other question above about the bottom widget bar color, any ideas?

    I’m sorry, gave you the wrong link. Correct one is: http://so-bored.com/wordpress/?p=152. Top right of post before and after so-bored.com, there is the words “by”, which you can’t see and the “date” (which you also can’t really read).

    Donna,

    I had problems with the Date – I think it was these lines that I changed in the end:

    .post .date p {
    color: #e3e3e3;
    display: inline;
    font: normal 12px tahoma;
    line-height: 22px;
    }
    .post .date p span {
    color: #2c2b2b;
    font-size: 18px;
    }
    .post .date p span.year {
    color: #2c2b2b;
    font-size: 11px;
    font-weight: bold;
    }

    and I think the bottom bits on my page were sorted with the following lines:

    #footer {
    background: #1d1b1b;
    }
    #sidebar_bottom {
    background: #000;
    }

    Not sure if that’s what you were after but it should point you in the right direction… the blind leading the blind?

    Yeah, I think I actually tried the date reference but it didn’t work. As far as the footer, it’s not the footer. It’s an alternate page bottom widget bar only on the front page. I’m still trying though. Sorry for the ignorance but new to WP. Since I got you (lol), do you know if it’s possible to collapse the blog roll posts so that they are not showing the full post, just a portion. Thank you. Any help is SINCERELY appreciated!!!!

    I just tried a few edits on my site and I think this should sort out the dark text around your author

    .post-meta {
    color: #ffff;
    }

    Unfortunately, I’m pretty new at this too and have no idea what half of the code does but it’s easier than fighting with Dreamweaver!!

    rowladar is right about the dark text aroung the author. As for the bottom widget area, use this:

    #sidebar_bottom {
    background: #000 // Change to whatever colour you like
    }

    Damn – just beat me to it…

    Donna – download firebug and use it with Firefox (never been a fireox fan until now!) it will save you hours!

    Thanks guys, going to try it now . . . will let you know.

    As far as firebug, I downloaded it a few days ago but it seemed to bog down my computer. Besides, I got you rowladar! ;D Just kidding. I’ll let you know.
