Howdy. I'm just looking for a little clarification on how to modify individual elements of my blog site. http://literarygadabout.wordpress.com.
This topic has been addressed in a previous forum http://bit.ly/yO0WJX (now closed to comments), which provided a great starting point. Now I'm hoping to refine everything.
Specifically, I'd like to make the text boxes clean and professional looking (easy to read, nice spaces between each element so the background shows through, using a slightly transparent text box background as opposed to white which still allows the text to pop).
The sidebar looks pretty rough (too much white space and an awkwardly placed Twitter widget) and throughout the site there are seemingly random text boxes that do not have the white background applied to them with the existing CSS I've added (for example, "Notify me of follow up comments via email" at the bottom of a post).
The trouble is, I don't know what these elements are "called" (what to put in the selector component) in order to begin experimenting with proper declaration values and properties for each of them.
If I can just get a basic list of each of the names of the elements on my page, with a few specific suggestions for helping to clean up the overall look of my site by adjusting all the random white text space, that would be a huge game-changer for me. At this point, I'm embarrassed to even post anything new to the site until it looks better ;/
Whoever takes the time to respond to this, just know that I very much appreciate you. I WILL learn this CSS one day...I just need a little guidance to get me going. Thank you :)
The blog I need help with is literarygadabout.wordpress.com.
