    Hi

    This is my blog:
    http://we-are-awesome.com/blog/

    I am wanting to change the color of the links in the content section and leave the color as it is in the sidebar.
    But im not too sure how to do that?

    Is there a way?
    When i change the link color in the stylesheet it just changes everything...

    It will make your life much easier if you work in Firefox and add the web developer's toolbar -then you can find the elements you need to target (http://chrispederick.com/work/web-developer/)

    This is how you'd change the links in your primary aside

    #primary a{
    color:red;
    }

    your secondary aside

    #secondary a{
    color:red;
    }

    etc

    Hope that helps

    That does help.
    Thank you.

    But now how do you get it to be a bit more selective and only change the links in the body of the post and not the header of the post, etc.

    Or is that asking too much...?

    In your style.css sheet, change the link color parameter (it's at the very bottom)...

    #content a{
    color: red;
    }

    to whichever color you want to use for your links within the content area i.e...

    #content a{
    color: #00c;
    }

    Thanks marti garaughty. I got that.
    But when i change it a to a blueish color, it also changes the header of the post, the 'older posts' link, etc.

    I only want it to change the links i create in the body of the post.

    try:

    .entry-content a

    The web developers toolbar will change your life ;-)

    Thank you so much for this tip!

    #content a{
    color: red;
    }

    That just solved a problem I've been wrestling with for ages. Wow.
