Hello. I recently started a webcomic using wordpress, comicpress, and comicpress manager. I would like to set up additional pages (an 'about' page, a cast list, etc), but whenever I try linking to the css sheet located in the /wp-content/themes/comicpress directory, it doesn't work. I get the basic green background that I've used, but nothing else.

I'm new to websites, so I only know enough to follow directions and things I look up on google, as well as follow some common sense. However, I haven't been able to make any more pages that have the same look (my banner/comicpress' navigation bar with the home/about/subscribe links).

I was wondering I'd have to do to get this to work. The main site is , and the 'about' page I want to make is . If a php or other type of file would be better for this, that's good too. I just used html because it's what I have the biggest grasp of.

My coding for the aboutpage is


<LINK REL=Stylesheet HREF="/wp-content/themes/comicpress/style.css" TYPE="text/css">

<title>Approximate Thought ::A Comic About Nothing::</title>
<p>Testingly good looks.

Thank you in advance for any help and insight =)

wordpress comes with an about page.
use that, but edit it to your liking.
i don't know what you have there, i see all the css in the head, not in a .css file.
but yes, all you should need is:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="wp-content/themes/comicpress/style.css" type="text/css">

regardless of what type of page you use.

i have heard people include the url, like:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="" type="text/css">

but that's like hotlinking, so many times it won't work.

Ah, I didn't see the Pages section before. Thank you very much =)

It's much easier doing it through wordpress than it is trying to hand code the pages, haha.
