    <div id="featured"><?php slidedeck( 171 ); ?></div>
    <div id="content">
    
    <?php query_posts("posts_per_page=5"); ?>
    <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    
    <div <?php post_class() ?> id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
    
    <h2 class="post-title"><a>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
    
    <?php include (TEMPLATEPATH . '/inc/meta.php' ); ?>

    please use the ‘code’ button to mark your code.

    when i put a background color to my blog title .. the whole article is being affected by the background color..

    i can’t see any background style for the post title – unless you refer to the top blog title, in which case you have posted the wrong template and css – the blog title is more likely in header.php

    can you give more details and post a link to your site to illustrate your problem?

    oops sorry bout that. yeah anyway here is the site

    i want to add a background color in my blog title just like the meta.

    .post-title { color: #000; font-size: 22px; padding: 0; margin: 30px 0 0 0; background: #fafafa }

    and can you tell if there is something wrong with my loop and css codes?

    i’m currently editing it offline using wamp.

    it is because of the way some elements of the post are floated, and others are not.

    try:
    .post-title { color: #000; font-size: 28px; padding: 0; margin: 30px 0 0 0; clear:both; background: #fafafa; }

    and can you tell if there is something wrong with my loop and css codes?

    check your code with:
    http://validator.w3.org/
    http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/

    oh! thats why when i put floats on my title and entry divs… they’ve collapsed. i going to validate it first.

    How about my loop? is it ok?
