I am trying to set up Geeklog to have the menu links differant then rest of page but there is presently no way to change links without changing whole sites links to what is defined in the stylesheet.

Is there a way to make it so the links in the left and right blocks can differ from rest of page. Any help would be great!

Changing the menu links: do you mean the topic links, ro the menu in the header, or do you use a menu-plugin?

About changing the left/right blocks: most themes have separate leftblocks and rightblocks templates. See in the directory of your current theme: leftblocks.thtml and rightblocks.thtml.

Basically I have the header and footer files in place that I would like but no way to change link color within them. So if they are blue the rest of the pages links must be blue as well.

The layout of the menu navigation is fine, just can not determine how to change the color of the links. Hopefully this makes more sense.

Basically I am looking for a way to change color of the links for the blocks, but have main content area of page use a differant color scheme for the links.

you could wrap the "menu"links in span tags and change the colour in the stylesheet like this:
<span class"menuitems"><a href=".....>Link</a>

Stylesheet:
.menuitems A { colour: somecolour; }

One more question! Basic search function just brings me to the advanced search page when I use the following code:

&lt;form action=&quot;/search.php&quot; method=&quot;get&quot;&gt;&lt;input type=&quot;text&quot; name=&quot;query&quot; class=&quot;menusearch&quot; size=&quot;15&quot; maxlength=&quot;255&quot;&gt; &lt;img src=&quot;images/search.gif&quot;&gt;&lt;/form&gt;

I appreciate the help guys. I think once I grasp these last few things I will be able to actually answer questions rather then ask them Razz

Try adding the following to the inside of your form tags:

<input type="submit" value="{button_search}">
<input type="hidden" name="type" value="all">
<input type="hidden" name="mode" value="search">



If you want that image to act as a search button, you'll have to look up the HTML for that.
