My first wordpress blog (3 posts)

    Hey all,

    I finally finished my first wordpress blog. I am using the connections reloaded 1.2.2 theme though I'd like to upgrade to version 1.5 I am just not sure if that will mean starting all over again? Anyway, the only two issues I have so far are little things but the kind that bother you, know what I mean? One, I can'tt fingure out how to make the blog title a little easier to read. I am assuming I need to make the text bold but not sure how to do this without messing things up. The other things is there's a little squiggly line -- sort of a horizontal S -- that goes at the end of each post. I can't figure out how to get this to show below the "notable" icons and the "feedflare" stuff.

    Anyway, let me know what ya'll think as feedback is appreciated. :-)

    For the font in the header, you will need to know CSS - edit the header section where the font attributes are, and add:


    To the "S" is an image - so you need to edit all your page templates, usually index.php, page.php, and maybe archive.php and move that image to below the line of icons.

    In your style sheet, the title is handled by:
    #header h1 to make the font bigger change the font-size: 1.6em to something like 2.0em you'll have to play around with it to get it to your liking.

    If you want it "bold" you can add font-weight: and then as ladydeluna suggested use bold, or I prefer to use the 100-900 scale, so font-weight: 700 would be standard "bold" 800 more so etc. Note there is not unit of measure.

    The description below is #header desc you can play with those values as well.

    You may want to change the font color to white, #FFFFFF, as the image and font color seem to be clashing.

    Regarding the divider between posts, that is also called in your CSS. It's a background image to the .post-footer. So where ever you put the code for the notables and feedflare, you simply need to make sure its within the .post-footer div in the template. Or, create a div class, and cut the background from .post-footer and add it to the new div class.

    If any of that is confusing, just let me know, and we can dissect it a little further.
