  • Website:

    As you can see there are some posts but they do not contrast from the back ground they are just blending in, I’d like to create a frame around the posts now and for all the new posts fore coming. I’m new to coding and am not sure where to go from here. Thnx for the help.

  • Hi TannerFresh,

    There is ‘more than one way’ to do this…

    Line 1317 of the style.css reads:

    #content-blog {
        margin-bottom: 20px;

    You could make a few changes here such as:

    #content-blog, h1 {
        margin-bottom: 20px;
     background-color: #333333; /*try different bkgr colors*/
        color: #cccccc; /*color of text*/
        padding: 10px; /* a bit of 'space*/

    You’ll need a few basic skills to setup, create and manage a site.
