I would like to remove the following things that show up on the bottom of each of my posts: "share this note with social bookmarks, Comments; Tell us what do you think; There are no comments on this entry, Trackbacks; Websites mentioned my entry; There are no trackbacks on this entry.

    Here is an example: http://glvolunteers.com/?p=230

    Thanks :)

    I'm not great with this, but I looked at the css in Firebug, I don't see any specific css selectors for any of that. It's all just global p and h tags and p classes, I don't know what to do with that..
    I'm afraid It will require more experienced support than I can offer. sorry :(

    If you get desperate you could yank the code out of the template file. Is this a premium or custom made theme?

    or you could just search the entire style.css and try to find code that looks like it references those elements, then /*hide*/ it and see what happens.

    You'll find it's not easy to get css help in this forum, it's too specific to each theme's structure, nothing to do with wp core.

    I'm often willing to help with css because I'm a beginner myself and I learn from it. And there are indeed experts who will occasionally
    help with out with css here, but you can't count on it.

    Thanks for that I will try that...
    A question about that - if I mess something up in CSS and it doesn't work, will it affect the site? I have once changed something in the php and the site was useless afterwards and I had to reinstall wordpress.
    Is that going to happen if I would make a css mistake?

    I don't know that css changes can crash a site, but they can make it look real funny. You won't loose the ability to log in.

    just copy the code you want to change, paste it at the end of style.css and make the change there, it will overwrite what came before. This way you are not changing the original code and it's easier to reverse it without errors.

    Always make backup copies of all files you edit.
