I had a look through the settings and the documentation but I'm a little stuck on something - how can I alter the visual settings for news posts - colours and fonts etc. I'm sure it can be done as there is a plain style and the standard/ajax style with blue headings. I'd quite like my headings to be in red courier and the rest of the text as is to fit with the rest of the website I'm working on.
Also - I will be adding news that was on an old static HTML page - when I add it it obviously has the current date and time stamped on it; is it possible to doctor the date/time stamps else it will appear as a whole bunch of things happened on one day, which would be silly.

To change the visual style of the news a bit of HTML knowledge is required. While in the Template section of the admin area. You first select which template you want to use, once selected you then edit that template by clicking on its name. That will give you the HTML code which controls the overal design and layout of your news posts.
If you then expand the News box, here you will find the HTML code specific to each news article, the first line is the code which colours the blue header your talking about
You change that to the colours/fonts you want to use, also do the same for the Comments box aswell.
As for the doctored dates, I'll definitely add that in the next version of the script but for now I'll create a small script that will give you the same functionality, I'll hopefully have it finished sometime today. So feel free to add your existing news articles to the script then once I've finished writing this new script you can then change them
