“Call yourself a techie???”

I was wrestling (again) with WordPress yesterday trying to persuade my custom, Semiologic theme to let me change the color of the site title above (now blue – it used to be red!).  It was clearly an <h1> tag, and was clearly in the #sitename section, but no amount of coaxing, hacking or swearing would persuade it to change color.  It was clearly happy as a red title!

Then I remembered that I’d installed Chris Pederick’s fabulous Web Developer’s toolbar under Firefox!  Using this, there’s a great facility where you can “View Style Information” (under the CSS menu) simply by using the mouse to point a cross-hair cursor to various screen elements.  I never knew cascading style sheets could be so easy! 😉

Anyway, it turns out that my <h1> tag was also a link, so my CSS needed to reflect this.

As you can clearly see at the top of this page, the title is no longer red!
