Previous Entry | Next Entry

I've been messing around with the comment customizations and I believe my problems are easy fixes but I haven't found a post that gives all the details of attributes that can be changed with comments. The starter style-sheet is helpful but I think there's more attributes that I'm unaware of. Is there some sort of comprehensive list of all variables that can be changed that I'm missing?

-Browser: Firefox
-Account: Paid (but fixes should be CSS only)

Want to fix:
  1. Remove/Change the black border on the comment form (is that what it's called? I've kind of been just messing around so I don't know the proper names for all the attributes). To clarify: I get the black border when hitting 'leave a comment' from the 'entry' view. The border doesn't show up if I hit comment from the 'recent entries' view.
    Solved! Thanks to av8rmike in comments.

  2. Have a border on the drop-down menu for userpics, but not a border for each item on the drop-down menu (right now in my CSS when i specify a border it effects both parts.)

Screenshot of what I want to change:

My CSS relevant to comment page customizations:
#comments {padding: 0px; border:0px;}

#comments input, #comments textarea {
font-family: calibri, \"trebuchet ms\", tahoma, verdana, arial, sans-serif;
background-color: #bee783;
border: 0px;

#comments button, #comments select, #comments submit, #comments option {
font-family: calibri, \"trebuchet ms\", tahoma, verdana, arial, sans-serif;
background-color: #ffffff;
border: 1px solid #bee783;

#comment-form textarea {
font-family: calibri, \"trebuchet ms\", tahoma, verdana, arial, sans-serif;
background-color: #bee783;
border: 0px;

#comment-form {

Thank you for any help! :)

I can't open a reply page to see this behavior, and I can't see any black borders referenced in the CSS code. Either make a post public or temporarily add me to your friends list.
Have you tried asking grrliz, since it's one of her themes?

Thanks for the suggestions on how to get help. I probably should have done those things first ;) I enabled comments and made a public entry. Then I went over to thefulcrum and it seems like she's stumped too.

And to clarify: I get the black border when I hit "leave a comment" on the 'entry' page, not when I hit comment on the 'recent entries' view. What I'm talking about is also what happens with this community.

The borders aren't a big deal, I'm just nit-picking I guess ;) But if you have any suggestions, that would be great! Thanks for your time! I definitely remember you helping me perfect my metadata! ♥

More problems. I couldn't find any satisfying answer in the tags list...

1) How do I change the color of the subject/datetime stamp in comments? (pink dot)

2) How do I get rid of the dividers in a comment's link bar, or at least change the color of them? (green dots) This also goes for the .prevnext links, I don't like the black color of the divider. And, finally,...

3) ... how do I change the border-color of "reply-comments"? (blue dot)

Screenshot of all the colorful dots:

1) .comment-date { color: #xxxxxx;}

2) .separator { color: #xxxxxx;}

3) .comment-even { border-color: #xxxxxx;}

You normally use Opera, right? Since you seem to have a lot of specific questions, I'd recommend you use one of the Firefox extensions that lets you view and modify CSS in real-time. EditCSS is a simple one; Web Developer has a feature that you can use to highlight each specific box. It would certainly save you the trouble of making all these little "dot" graphics. ;)

I was able to change the form border with this:
#comments table {border: 1px dashed blue !important;}
Of course, you'll want to change the style to suit you.
However, the top row isn't its own <TR> class, so there's no way to isolate it from the other rows.

Thank you!! The inner row's border doesn't bother me too much and I usually reply from the entry page (where it works perfect) when I'm scrolling the flist anyway.
