modifying a template

  • I am in the process of moving my blog to wordpress and have found it somewhat difficult at the beginning. But I think I am getting there. I have found a templatebased on rubric that I like, except for one thing. I don’t know how to add extra space between the post title and the post content, and then between the post content and the comments, and finally between the content and the next post. I’d like to add spaces or even a line, but I am too much of a novice at CSS to do it. Can someone help me? I don’t really want to dive into a CSS tutorial at the time being ;o)
    TIA

  • Well, the CSS is the simplest way to do it actually. To separate the post content from the post title, find in your wp-layout.css file the following:
    .storytitle {
    margin-top: 0.25em;
    padding-bottom: 10px;
    }

    You can make it larger or smaller, however much you need. As for in between posts and the comments… Based on the HTML that you wrote, you can add the following in your CSS file:
    #comments {
    padding-top: 10px;
    }
    Again, you can increase the number to increase the size of the space.
