Adding padding to blog posts (6 posts)

    Hi there- I added a 5px border around my pages. This looks really nice on everything but the blog entries, where the border is right up against the text. I would like to add padding to my posts, but don't know enough about the WordPress page structure to do so without risking messing something up!

    I've also noticed that when I visit my site on a mobile device, the borders are too close as well. Any insights?

    I would really appreciate the help!

    Those kinds of spacing issues are controlled by CSS in the style.css file. It's not a big deal to change them (keep a back-up copy before you start messing with it) -- and you can use Firebug to figure out which CSS code to change.

    If you want specific help, you must post a link to your site so someone can see the actual code.

    Shoot, duh! Here's the link to my site, blog post that needs fixing is the front page. The look with the border that I DO like can be seen on the rest of the pages, such as 'About.'

    Thank you for your response!

    This CSS should do it -- on line 706:

    .hentry, .no-results {
        border-bottom: 1px solid #DDDDDD;
        margin: 0 0 1.625em;
        position: relative;

    change the padding to how you want it to look.

    Works like a charm! Thank you so much for your help :)

    Edit: I had asked another question but it seems that I figured it out for now!

    Hi WPyogi,

    Can you please help me to adjust the padding for my post.

    I want to increase the padding of my post from the sidebar on the right side for better readability.

    Thanks in advance.
