Got my custom fields rocking, but not the format!

  • Hi, I’ve got my site

    http://www.oldboysgamingnetwork.co.uk

    And I’ve made some mods to display a ‘currently playing’ custom key and value fine.

    Trouble is I just want it to lie left justified like the heading of the post, could somebody point me in the direction of what to edit to change this?

    I know the PHP creates a list tag to display the custom fields, is this what is causing the indent?

    Hope somebody can help.

    p.s. come on England!

  • Well, England might be busy. But I can help. Looking at your source I found this:
    <li><span class="post-meta-key">Currently Playing:</span> Donkey Konga 2 (Gamecube)</li>

    This means you can create a new CSS class named “.post-meta-key” and style it how you would want.

    By the way, your site looks really nice. Is it your own custom theme, or did you alter another?

    Hi, thanks for the reply, turns out England were busy but with good reason. I have used the template ChaoticSoul 1.0 by Bryan Veloso, with minor mods, it is indeed a nice theme.

    I had already found the .post-meta-key class in my stylesheet, but since the meta php function creates the

  • tag no matter what I put in the my stylesheet it still creates an indent – I’m so close but so far!
  • Ahh you see it take effect above! I repeat..

    creates the <li > tag no matter what I put in the my stylesheet it still creates an indent – I’m so close but so far! < /li>

I understand. Then this means to need to write a css rule to style that pesky <ul> element exactly how you want it. An example would be (this will take out the indent):

.post-meta {
list-style: none;
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
}

Good luck. And thanks for the theme info.

Great, works sweet now. Cheers 🙂
