Padding space between blog posts (6 posts)

    Hi, I've just set up a blog using the Indore template. I've managed to edit the CSS thus far to customize it with little trouble, but I am stuck on one thing: there is almost no space between posts, so that they are very muddled. (I.E. the "comments" link of the most recent post is really close to the top of the next post, with not enough space in between them.)

    I have played around with the padding in the stylesheet, but I can't seem to figure out where the particular code for the space between entries is. Would anyone know how I can just insert some space between posts?

    There are thousands of WordPress themes - which means that many people won't be familiar with your particular theme. So a link to your site where people can see the theme might result in more responses.

    Good point, sorry about that.

    Here is a link to the blog, and where all the posts are:
    http://storytelling.concordia.ca/oralhistory/offtherecord/?page_id=19

    You should be able to see how close the "comments" link is to the post underneath it. Again, I am just wondering how to insert some space in between the posts.

    The piece of the style.css that you're looking for is:

    #content .post {
    margin:0 0 10px;
    }

    You could change it to:

    #content .post {
    margin:0 0 25px;
    }

    or

    #content .post {
    margin:0 0 40px;
    }
    . . . if you want.

    and that will open it up a bit for you.

    Oh my goodness, thank you so much! This was totally one of those "calling the repairman" moments--I am sure that I messed with that bit of code before and it didn't help, but somehow when I tried it now thanks to your suggestion, it worked perfectly! Thanks again.

    My pleasure! Now I just need to figure out how to fix the garbage disposal.
