    Hi again, I was wondering if it’s possible to put a box around each excerpt in the blog and categories? THX Sharon

    Not sure what you mean exactly by “box” but the container you would need to create custom CSS for is this:

    article.format-standard {
    your box styling here
    }

    Well…there’s already a container around the posts, you just have to get creative with what you want to do with them, as in background colours, borders, etc. This is where you get to have fun and explore more about HTML and CSS 🙂

    Bookmark this site as it’s a good one…even I have it bookmarked: http://www.w3schools.com

    Well I’m illiterate at coding and where to put it, but just to make myself understood, I was thinking of a shadow focus container/box around the pic, description etc to separate each post. Is this possible please? A little like this http://demo.d5creation.com/themes/?theme=SunRain then click on the blog theme. It doesn’t have to be exact, but I’m just trying to get my point across. THX Sharon

    OMG you posted a link to a competing themer 👿
    lol….just kidding….anyway, this can be done in a few ways, but it’s still going to require you to either do some creative CSS coding, or to modify the theme files (using a child theme), creating a custom shadow graphic image, then using CSS to insert it into the

    container or adding it to just below the closing tag of the

    tag as a directly inserted image graphic.

    Long story short, it can be done but to be honest, this one you need some coding experience or a friend who could do this for you.
