    I just started using wordpress this last week so I'm not sure what version it is but recent.

    Please help! If you look at my site:
    http://www.tanyaadamsillustrations.com

    each post is in a box that has a shadow - Im trying to remove this. It is on every page - how can I take it away so that there is no separation between post and background?- so its just a plain unbroken white everywhere.
    I have looked online for ages and found similar problems but everything I try doesnt work. I managed to remove the outline to the image, but not to the whoel post. Also when one scrolls over the image the transparent areas (png) go gray - can I stop this?

    ALSO: would also like to change the font for the menu - is this possible?

    Thank you! hoping you can help!

    Try applying this to your CSS

    #content .hentry {
     -webkit-box-shadow: none;
     -moz-box-shadow: none;
     box-shadow: none;
    }

    Remember if you're not using a Custom or Child theme, or Custom CSS/Style plugin, your changes will erase once the theme updates.

    I tried posting that in the CSS but it made no difference? Hum is a child theme so it should be alright/ Im very new at this, so have no idea: sorry for my ignorance. I posted it at the bottom of the css is that right?

    not sure hwat you mean by navigation? - where it says

    home
    portfolio
    contact
    blog

    can I change this font?

    In which file have you posted the CSS?

    Change the font of the navigation menu by using:

    #access a {
     font-family: yourFontFamily;
    }

    If it's not a font accessible in browsers, i.e other than verdana, tahoma, times new roman etc., you may have to use Cufon or Font Face.

    As you're using theme Hum, I would recommend you use either a Child Theme or Custom Style/CSS plugin to modify the theme.

    The Custom Style/CSS plugins are generally easier to implement style changes.

    Thank you! I installed a Custom Style/CSS plugin, and it worked. Thank you so so much: especially for the instant replies!
