Mimbro Pro Home Page Side Bar Coding

  1. Hi, for my website, I am trying to customize the home page sidebar with CSS.

    First off, how do I remove "Recent Stories" from the side bar? It re-appeared and I don't know how to get it off.
    Second, I would like to put some sort of demarcation in the middle of the sidebar, in order to put two separate lines of text. How is this possible with CSS?

    Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is multicoach.wordpress.com.

  2. Hi, I got the Recent Stories title taken away, but I am in need of a lot of help with the demarcation in the sidebar. I want to know in general which CSS commands are useful in customizing elements of the sidebar on the home page.

    Sorry, I'm not clear about your question! Do you mean adding a horizontal line between two lines of text, or something else? Could you provide a more specific explanation of what you're trying to do?

    I looked at http://multicoach.wordpress.com/ and I see an area on the right that starts with "If you're looking for expert." Is that the sidebar area you are referring to? Here is a CSS example that can target that specific area:

    #recent {
       border: 5px solid red;
    }

    It adds a huge red border, so try previewing it only and then adjust it from there.

    To find out what selectors to use in CSS, you can use your web browser's built in browser tools. Try right-clicking on an element and then select the "Inspect Element" option. It should pull up a panel with the HTML highlighted for what you right-clicked as well as all the CSS that applies to it on the right.
