How can I create a content border on my blog?

Recommended Posts


Hi there...I would like to create a blog like http://gideonshalwick.com. I like that kind of boxes where the blog content is showing. How can I create content border for individual post like the one on his blog? Can i do this with pagelines by default, or do i need a plugin?

Thanks a lot.

No plugin needed. You’ll need to use Custom CSS (in Site Options > Custom Code > Custom CSS). CSS that changes the style of a page element consists of two parts: the selector and the attribute.

Selector: Used to select the page element you want to change (in this case, the page element you want to change is your individual post area in the blog page).

Attribute: Property that determines what kind of change you want (you’re changing the border, so the attribute you want to use is border).

To find the selector for the individual post area, you'll need to use Firebug (or Chrome Development tools). To learn how to use Firebug for CSS customizations, please read and follow these instructions: http://www.pagelines.com/wiki/Custom_CSS.

For help with the border attribute, please see these instructions: http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/pr_border.asp

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.
