Nothing Happens When I Change Style Sheet (6 posts)

    Hi, nothing changes when I make adjustments to the style sheet. I have made sure the file is writable, I've added the disable cache code to the index.php but nothing happens.

    I'm trying to create a little bit of space between the posts in my sidebar's recent post list but none of the changes make any difference. I've even tried to make exaggerated changes to see if anything happens but nothing does. Any suggestions?

    How do you validate the css file?

    The sort of thing you're doing depends to a great deal on cascading style sheet specificity. If you'd like to post what theme you're using and a SMALL part of the code you're trying to change, I'll take a look at it.

    If it's going to take a LOT of code from the css to show what you're wanting to do, please post it at http://pastebin.com and post the link here.

    vkaryl, I haven't had the chance to post the code up yet, I'll do it as soon as I get the opportunity. It is the Andreas09 theme I am using.

    Hi, it is the andreas09 style sheet I am hoping to edit. In my sidebars recent posts lists I would like to add a small gap between each individual post as it is far too cluttered. I was hoping to add something here.

    /* Archives/Links Page List styles */

    .archives li, .linkspage li {
    list-style: none;
    }

    .archives ul.children {
    padding-left: 10px;
    margin-left: 10px;

    By changing something like

    .archives ul.children {
    padding-left: 10px;
    margin-left: 10px;
    padding-bottom: 10px;

    I am unsure if I am even in the correct place but I am unable to tell as even doing this

    .archives ul.children {
    padding-left: 200px;
    margin-left: 200px;
    padding-bottom: 200px;

    changes absolutely nothing.
