    I would like to add a space after the date, before the excerpt or full content. Can you help? My page is at http://drdavidraque.com/wp/articles/

    BTW I would also like to remove the [...] following the excerpt because I added a Read More link.

    Thanks for the cool plugin and great forum responses!

    I'm also curious on how to add a space. Right now my title is immediately followed by my excerpt; and I would like it instead to be on a new line.

    Add .excerpt to style.css to format that section.

    Hmm, okay. I guess I have to learn how to format css better. Do you have any sites you recommend?

    I added:

    .excerpt {
    	display: block;
    }

    and I was able to make the excerpt show on a new line - awesome. Now to add some a space after the picture, title, and excerpt, and to format the title text..

    Sounds like you're on your way, but I often refer to http://www.w3.org and http://stackoverflow.com, among other sites, for web tips and tools.

    .excerpt {
    	display: block;
    	padding-bottom: 20px;
    	padding-top: 20px;
    }

    is what I used to add the necessary spaces. Now I just need to edit the title font and size and I am good to go!
