How Do I Add a blog post separator only to the blog page (12 posts)

    Hello all, I'm new to Word Press and I am having a lot of trouble customizing little things exactly how I want them.

    I had someone add a blog post separator to my blog, but the separator is linking a disturbing line to every page including the home page, instead of only seperating the blog post on the blog page. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!

    I want to have a blog separator for the blog post only, and not have it appear on other pages.

    In dark-skin.css, try changing:

    #content article {
        border-bottom: 2px solid #666666;
        margin-bottom: 40px;
    }

    to:

    .blog #content article {
        border-bottom: 2px solid #666666;
        margin-bottom: 40px;
    }

    Thanks for the reply.
    Im so WP illiterate. Where do I click to find the dark skin.css?

    It's in wp-content/themes/picnic/css/dark_skin.css. You'll need to access the file via FTP.

    Is there a way I can do it from the editor menu located in the appearance tab?

    Unfortunately, you can't. And the original developer who added the border-bottom hasn't left much (if any) wriggle room to strip that border from every other page without having to come up with a whole string of classes that can be added to style.css (which you can access) that remove the border. :-(

    Oh my. I have no idea what to do. I'm searching for the code you just provided, I think i see something similar, but I'm not sure if that is what I should change.

    I think I need a step by step guide, or to watch a video of some one adding seperators to their blog post. Because I'm still lost :(

    Can you access your theme's folder in wp-content/themes using FTP or whatever file manager your host provides?

    Yes I can, i just called their support number and i was told that it would be easier to change it directly from WP editor .css

    But I can log in and check it out if you can help me do it the way you suggest.

    Your support contact is incorrect. You cannot access css/dark_skin.css via the Appearance editor. You need to access the file via FTP.

    Thanks for giving my post some needed attention. It is fixed (I had professional help).

    Thank You!

    Does anyone know if WP has a support phone number or email? Or a way you can pay a fee (or free) to get help from one a WP staff member?

    There are no wordpress.org "staff". Only this volunteer-staffed forum.
