I found the information about making a color extend to the bottom of the page in a sidebar, but I can't seem to get a right border (on a left column) to extend that far (I'm trying to do something fancy with a left border on the alpha column and a right border on the beta column in two different colors). Any thoughts?

Also is there a way to change the links in the comments to a different color than the default link color? I wanted them to match the links in the entries.

Neither is incredibly important, but I always seem to dive in at the deep end and try the most difficult things first.

I'm a little confused... you mention links in the comments, but your entry pages are in the site scheme. Did you mean for it to be like that?

As for the sidebar border, you can put a left border on #beta (don't forget to reduce its width), but the border won't go to the bottom of the page because the actual #beta column doesn't extend to the bottom of the page. That's why one has to do the .layout-tw #content-inner {background:...} thing.

Sorry. First of all I'm working on this on another journal mm_hhertzof, which I should have mentioned in the original post. It's for a layout contest and I didn't want to start messing around with my own journal.

And the links I was referring to were the ones at the bottom of each comment. (Link, reply, thread, etc.

So would putting the border in a .layout-tw section work?

And thanks for all of your help. I know I've posted a lot of questions recently, but that doesn't show how much I've picked up from all of the previous posts in the journal.

.comment-links a { color: red; }
(or whatever color) should do it.

If you've read a lot of previous posts, you might have seen a lot of questions about sidebar borders that involve background images instead of actual borders. Of course, you'd have to make or find that image yourself. For example, here is an excerpt from the Bunnylicious stylesheet:

.layout-tw #content-inner { background: #fff url(bg-content-tw.gif) repeat-y scroll top left; }
The GIF is a simple 190x4px with the desired background and border color.

Aha. I couldn't track down the correct section to put the color code in.

I wasn't even thinking in terms of making a separate graphic but that makes perfect sense. I'll play around with it tomorrow.

Thanks again.
