http://www.localpartnersmedia.com 1) I cannot for the life of me get the active link on the nav bar to highlight. In the custom CSS (also tried base.css), I have: ` #primary-nav .main-nav li a:active{ background: #C8C8C8; color: #000000; } ` No luck.. what am I missing? 2) Is there a simple way on a subpage to have a border around the content area? 3) How about a border around the sidebar widgets on the sub pages? Tried my best with Firebug and toying with CSS, can't get these almost finishing touches. Thanks,

1. Let's try:

`
#nav_row #menu-nav .current_page_item a{
background: #C8C8C8;
color: #000000}
`
2. and 3. Let's try:

`#sidebar, #column-main{border:#999 2px solid}`

Thanks, Bryan

Brian, I tried your code above for item 2 and could not get it to work. I tried it for item 3 as a test and it worked fine. Is it possible that the sidebar needs a specifier?
