[resolved] Nesting elements that shouldn't be nesting? (3 posts)

    I'm trying to style the date and title on my main post index, but the <p> element for my date is inside the <h2> element for my title. As far as I can tell, this should not be the case. I've got the code written like this:

    <p class="date"><?php the_time('d'); ?><span><?php the_time('M'); ?></span></p>
    <h2 class="title"><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>

    If you check out a the page on my site that I'm working on (http://www.urracacreative.com/blog/), you can see that the bottom border on the h2 extends under the date, but I don't want it to extend any further to the left than the edge of the title. Does that make sense?

    Can anybody tell me what I'm doing wrong? I don't understand why my <p> is sitting inside my <h2> since both elements are closed and they should not be nested.

    Thanks in advance!

  2. Try adding a margin-left:60px; to your h2 title.
    That should move the border.

    Worked like a charm! I knew there had to be a simple solution. Thank you!
