    Greetings Ulysses. I have loaded 1.2 of Black Letterhead, and want to change the font colours for blockquotes, and “Posted in…” I’ve tried to work with the stylesheets, but cannot determine how to change those colours. I have made some other tweaks with success, but can’t make a font colour change. Can you advise? Thank you kindly – Randy

    Hi Randy,

    You’ll need to find the “blockquote” and “small” entries in style.css and add the color the and the background-color to control them.

    Hi, i would like to install your black-letterhead 1.2 theme, but i get some errors after activating the theme.

    I have only uploaded your theme, without any modification.

    Thank you – Dr. No

    Dr. No. I’ve never seen these errors before and I have been using WordPress for more than two years now. Sorry, I’m not able to help.

    I love this theme, but is there an easy way to flip the sidebar to the left?

    Love the theme and use it for my site. I have one question, when my “archives” are being viewed my side bar disappears. can you help?


  7. ulyssesr says:


    Double check the archives.php file to make sure it contains…

    class=”narrowcolumn” instead of widecolumn.

    Also, make sure the get_sidebar(); code is right above the footer.

    Good luck.

    i did the double check, i’m still losing my sidebar. might it have something to do with widgets?

  9. Curt says:

    found the problem. i added the changes to the single-post file. works like a dream. i LOVE this theme. with your permission, i might switch out the header with a kick-ass dragon image!

  10. black is always my favorite..!!

    I know HTML pretty well, but all the PHP/CSS is making it hard for me to know where to make an easy tweak.

    I am using the header image feature, but want people to be able to automatically click the header image to return to the main index page.

    Where would I put that? Thanks.

    Hi Jeff,

    I fixed this issue with Black-Letterhead version 1.4. If you like to make the changes to your current theme, you’ll find the fix here.
