Reformatting Blog

I am not a fan of how the blog looks when it is laid out. I'm not talking about the design - I'm talking about how the text is formatted.

Is there a way I can change the html coding on it so that I choose how my headers are going to look? I don't like that my links are underlined - I hate it when links are underlined.

My main problem is that I don't like how large the text is and that it's underlined. I would like the sidebar texts (Tags, Categories etc...) to be a little less in your face.

Thanks!

Hello Maureen

There is no easy way to change the text for your sidebar texts. A CSS hack will need to be created for this.

If you can let me know the style that you're using, I can try to come up with a code for you.

In the meantime, to get rid of the underlined links, you can add this code to your page by dragging over an HTML Widget and pasting in the following:

<style type="text/css">
a:link {
color: blue;
text-decoration:none;
}

a:visited {
color: purple;
text-decoration:none;
}

a:active {
background-color: yellow;
text-decoration:none;
}

a:hover {
color:red;
text-decoration:none;
}
</style>

You can change the color as desired.

Please note that this will change all your links, including any links you've added to your blog.

If you need any further assistance, please let me know.

I agree that the format is not ideal - I don't like how there is no line separating the posts - you just know it's a new post by the BIG font of the title. Are any updates expected? I think blogging should have formatting options - blogs are supposed to be personal. . . it would be really nice to have some additional options.

THANKS!

Hello LauraB

While it would be nice to have additional features for the blog, it is currently a low priority for us at this time. If you could let me know what additional features you would like to see, then I can pass along this feedback to our Product Team to take under consideration.

In the meantime, can you please let me know what you mean by "no line separating the posts"? Are you wishing to have a horizontal line between each post?

If so, click on the HTML button on the blog Text Editing Toolbar, and enter in <hr> at the bottom of each blog post. This should insert a horizontal line.

I hope that helps!
