How to change paragraph styles

  • Hey,

    First, great theme — it’s been very helpful.

    I am new to this so was wondering how to indent the text more. I’d like all of the content to be about a half inch further away from the left.

    Also, is there anyway to move the top navigation menu over slightly closer to the logo?

    Lastly, how do I remove the image next to the page headers. It looks like a little notebook?

    Thanks

  • .span9 {
        margin-left: 56px; /*play with these values*/
    }

    Alternatively use:

    .span9 {
        padding-left: 56px; /*play with these values*/
    }

    == =-= == location of the menu

    .row-fluid [class*="span"] {
        margin-left: .5641%;/*play with these values*/
    }

    play with the values until the desired result is reached.
    Add the above to the ‘Custom CSS’-section of your theme.

    How to find which CSS to change

    About finding out ‘which things to change in your site [css / html / php]

    Well it’s all a bit like trying to solve a puzzle.
    Fortunately there are good tools for that.
    In your browser: Install / activate webdevelopment add-ons / plugins.

    Recommended: ‘Firebug’ and ‘webdeveloper: http://www.chrispederick.com
    These tools will show you what’s what.
    e.g. right-click > inspect elements > click left bottom arrow-icon
    click item in webpage
    Inspect css on the right
    alter css values to test effect / result
    OK? copy altered css rule
    paste it in the style.css of your childtheme.

    Alternatively:
    Press <F12> a screen will show in the bottom.
    Move the mouse over each line
    The area shows in the top-half
    Press + to unfold parts
    Investigate and alter on the right etc.
    paste it in the style.css of your childtheme.

    Thanks for the help! That worked for moving the nav bar, but what about changing the content paragraph styles and moving them over towards the center a little bit?

    For that use the top bit of code.
    If changing the ‘style.css’ of the childtheme doesnot work, copy the ‘blue.css’ or other color.css to the child theme folder and insert the above code in this stylesheet.

    I’m sorry but I don’t see blue.css or color.css anywhere

    You may have chosen a different color for your theme. Find the css that matches.
    Alternatively, locate the [other] css-files:

    ../wp-content/themes/customizr/inc/css
