Oxygen Widgets Margins/Padding

  1. The blog I need help with is http://carvingnature.net/

    1. I'm trying to alter the CSS to b) make the space between widgets smaller and b) make the space between the secondary menu and the widget beneath it smaller. How can I do this?

    2. How can I alter the color of the active menu item in the primary/secondary menus (i.e. the color of the item corresponding to the page being viewed)?

    Thanks in advance,

    The blog I need help with is carvingnature.tumblr.com.

  2. 1. Add this in the CSS editor:

    .widget {
        margin-bottom: 30px;
    }
    .menu-secondary {
        margin-bottom: 30px;
    }

    Decrease the values to adjust.

    2. Add this:

    .main-navigation li.current_page_item a, .main-navigation li.current-menu-item a, .menu-secondary li.current-menu-item a, .menu-secondary li.current-page-item a {
        color: #456789;
    }

    456789 is just an example, of course. For palettes and color codes see here:

  3. Many thanks.

    One little last thing. I've added an email icon to the Contact page on my blog (see carvingnature.net/contat) and I've added tags so that clicking the icon sends an email to our address. But because the icon is classified as a link, when the cursor hovers over it, the image gets an ugly underline.

    I thought that adding style="text-decoration: none" to the href instruction would remove this, but it doesn't. I don't want to change the text decoration for all the links, just this one. How can I do this?

    style="text-decoration: none"

  4. First, adding text-decoration:none would remove an underline if the underline was present when you view the page: the line you don't like shows only when you hover over the image link. Second, it's not an underline anyway, it's a bottom border.
    To get rid of it, add this in the CSS editor:

    #post-34 a:hover {
        border: none;
    }
