[resolved] Can't find .post in CSS/Tweaking a Theme (3 posts)

    I am tweaking Mike Purdy's quentin theme. http://www.pikemurdy.com/quentin/

    2 things I am looking for assistance with.

    1. in the html there is a "class=post" but in the CSS I can't find it anywhere. It seems to me I've seen this same mystery in other themes. How do I find out where this is? Is it something to do with the WP default files?

    2. I have been tweaking the theme for days, I'm pretty slow and very beginerish with CSS. What I want to do is close some of the space between the posts. Specifically, I want to close a bit of the space between the swirly image at the end of one post and the title of the next post. I just can't seem to figure out what portion of the CSS is controling this (was thinking it might be that "post class, hence the first question)

    any assistance or even pointing me to a tutorial would be greatly appreciated.

    First, just because a CSS class or ID is listed in the template files does not mean that the Theme author must use it. In this case, they did not. If you want to use it, then you can add it.

    There are a lot of great articles that will help you with this on the WordPress Codex. Here are a couple to help you get started. Pay particular attention to the one on Finding Your CSS Styles, as this teaches you how to become a CSS "detective" and gives you some options on locating troublesome CSS.
