Support » Themes and Templates » [Theme: Pinboard] shadow boxes

  • Resolved fhermse


    I’m using (child version of) the Pinboard theme and I’ve changed the background color to white. Now I want to make the outlines of pages, posts , reactions etc. more visible again by increasing the schadow-box around it…

    But i’m not an expert at CSS and there’s so many shadow-box options in de Stylesheet that I don’t know which ones aply to the pages, posts reactions etc. Who can help me with this? Is there a piece of code I can use in my child theme?

    Here’s the site it applies to:

    Your query is better suited on a forum that specalises in CSS support.



    Try using Firebug to help you identify which CSS code is affecting elements on a page. In this case, the following CSS code is creating that box shadow:

    .entry, #comments, #respond {
        background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #FFFFFF;
        border-bottom: 1px solid #DDDDDD;
        box-shadow: 0 0 5px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.1);
        margin: 2.5%;

    Since you are using a child theme, you need to use any or all of the selectors in the CSS code above with the styles you want to change. So for example, to remove the box shadow only from that page section, you would use:

    .entry {
        box-shadow: none;



    great! Thanks a lot, I think I’m getting it!
