# Create a blog using VuePress (Part 2)

Continued from Part 1.

# Custom CSS

The next step is to modify the theme of the blog slightly. To do that, I created .vuepress/styles/palette.styl file:

$accentColor = #007acc

Furthermore, I wanted to remove this svg on all outbound links:


A simple inspect showed me that is was being set by this:

.icon.outbound {
  color: #aaa;
  display: inline-block;
  vertical-align: middle;
  position: relative;
  top: -1px;

In order to hide that svg using CSS I created .vuepress/styles/index.styl file:

  display:none !important

This was the result:


# Ordering posts

The last thing I wanted to achieve was to order the posts in reverse chronological order. I modified our original PostList Vue component to add a sort function:


computed: {
  posts() {
    const path = this.$page.path
    const posts = this.$site.pages
      .filter(p => p.path && p.path.startsWith(path) && p.path !== path)
      .sort((a, b) => {
        return new Date(b.frontmatter.date) - new Date(a.frontmatter.date)
    return posts;

# Deploying to Zeit Now

Finally, it was time to deploy my blog. For that, I used ZEIT (opens new window). I connected (opens new window) ZEIT to my GitHub account and pointed it to the correct repo. I then filled the following options:


and voila my website is live!
