[resolved] A few basic 'how to" questions (Constructor theme) (4 posts)

    In the Constructor theme, I've been building site, but keep running into challenges. Here is what I'm struggling with:

    1. How can I add line breaks between paragraphs? Even in HTML mode, they don't seem to stick.
    2. How can I center the titles of widgets (particularly text widgets)?
    3. This site doesn't seem to highlight (underline or change the color of) text links. How can this be done?
    4. How can the title and tag line of the site be replaced by a logo?

    If anybody can answers these questions, I thank you greatly in advance!! I am in true admiration of anybody who knows how to manipulate code and websites so easily. ...guys like Esmi.

    **cough** girls like esmi...

    I've never even looked at Constructor themes (too much markup bloat for my taste) but I'd guess that items 1 - 3 can be handled by CSS/stylesheet changes or additions. Possibly even item 4 but I'd need a link to your site to be sure.

    1. Your paragraph styles just don't have much default space between them, you could try adding some additional margin on the bottom:

    .hentry .entry p {
    margin-bottom:14px;
    text-indent:12px;
    }

    Or if you're looking for more control within the HTML editor to add breaks manually, try using the TinyMCE Advanced plugin and checking the setting "Stop removing the <p> tags when saving and show them in the HTML editor"

    2. Centering sidebar widget titles:

    .sidebar h2, .sidebar h3 {
    text-align: center;
    }

    3. Underlining links:

    body, a {
    color:#333333;
    text-decoration: underline;
    }

    4. The header logo is contained within the <div class="logo"> DIV which is probably in the header.php file, that's where you'll want to swap out the <h1> for an image.

    Hope this gets you started!
