  • Tried everything and I can't figure how to reduce a margin and extend date header?

    http://i1206.photobucket.com/albums/.../helpimage.png

    Hi everyone, I've tried numerous things to do what I want to on my blog and I've run out of ideas!

    I would like to simply extend the blue around the date header. Add more width, but without changing anything about the text.

    Also Im trying to reduce the margin very slightly between the left sidebar and posts, just move it across.

    How can I do these things as im not very experienced with HTML or CSS and kinda don't have a clue what im doing! Thanks.

    in that photobucket pic... can you alter it so that post "1" is what it looks like now and post "2" is what you want it to look like and then re-link your site

    I code C hash-tag .Net
    Reference: W3C W3CWiki .Net Lib
    Validate: html CSS
    Debug: Chrome FireFox IE

          see if making these changes does it...
          you currently have
          Code:
          <h2 class="date-header">
          <span> then you have the date </span>
          </h2>
          try doing this...
          Code:
          <span>
          <h2 class="date-header"> then date stuff </h2>
          </span>
          idk if that will work; try and let me know... also i dont think "-" in class/id names is a good idea, try changing all the "-" s to "_" (eg date_header)... also I did not see a class assigned to your span... are you styling all spans the same? ie idk where your span picked up that style
          IMO you should avoid this and instead make a class and span the class...
