Change Continue Reading Link To Button

On my blog page I had this working and it looked good...but all of a sudden it reverted back to original text and aligning on the left. Any ideas? This is the code I placed in my custom .css:

.continue_reading_link { font-style: italic; font-size: small; float: right; color: #555; background-color: #f1f1f1; padding: 5px 15px; -moz-border-radius:6px; -webkit-border-radius:6px; border-radius:6px; } /* Change the color when hovering over Read more */ .continue_reading_link:hover { background-color: #4E7EAF; color: white; text-decoration:none !important; }

Hey There! Try a.continue_reading_link Also, there's a free plugin in the store called [url="http://www.pagelines.com/store/plugins/sexy-snips/"]Sexy Snips[/url] which just so happens to have that snip. Naturally, I'm a bit biased but I think it helps. ;) Let me know if any of this helps! Nick

Nope. I tried Sexy Snips and none of those seemed to be working on my blog page either?! I think I have something messed up on my blog page. I can't get featured images to resize or this continue reading button to work. I have the 'front page' set to display my current posts...but none of my custom .css seems to be working on it.

Are you using any other custom CSS on your site? If so, what is it? It may be conflicting.

This is everything in my custom .css: [quote]body{} #branding { margin-bottom: -25px; } .searchform { z-index: 10 !important; } .post-thumb { margin-right: 0px; margin-bottom: 0px; } .post-thumb .c_img { background:transparent!important; box-shadow:0 0 0!important; border:0 none!important; } .share_buttons_simple_use_buttons { margin-top: 0px; margin-bottom: 0px; padding: 0px; display: inline-block; ) .continue_reading_link { font-style: italic; font-size: small; float: right; color: #555; background-color: #f1f1f1; padding: 5px 15px; -moz-border-radius:6px; -webkit-border-radius:6px; border-radius:6px; } /* Change the color when hovering over Read more */ .continue_reading_link:hover { background-color: #4E7EAF; color: white; text-decoration:none !important; }[/quote]

Your site is under maintenance, so we cannot see anything or diagnose any of the CSS. When will you have maintenance finished?

Try this CSS [code]a.continue_reading_link { font-style: italic; font-size: small; float: right; color: #555; background-color: #f1f1f1; padding: 5px 15px; -moz-border-radius:6px; -webkit-border-radius:6px; border-radius:6px; } a.continue_reading_link:hover { background-color: #4E7EAF; color: white; text-decoration:none !important; }[/code]

Oh curly fries, yes, that can do it. I didn't see the code you posted before.
