    I am new to changing CSS and have successfully removed “posted by” headings and saved the change BUT when I make another change eg add borders to each post I lose the first change and “posted by” headings return?

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

    That shouldn’t happen. What is the CSS you are using to add the border to the post?

    #774667

    /*border for each post */
    .post{
    border:2px solid;
    margin:0 0 40px;
    padding:15px;
    text-align:justify;
    }

    This also works fine, but I lose the previous change which was:

    /* Hide post information bar */
    .post-date, .post-info{display:none;}

    Cheers

    I just added that to your custom CSS using Firebug on Firefox and it did not bring back the post metadata. I added it right after the metadata hide you did.

    .post {
    border: 2px solid;
    margin: 0 0 40px;
    padding: 15px;
    text-align: justify;
    }

    Once in a while the preview function can wonk out, so if something doesn’t show, force refresh the preview page.

    Thanks for your help, but I really don’t think I’m getting it, one code still seems to be replacing the other and visa versa, I’ve forced refreshes and opened the site in other browsers with the same result.

    Make sure when you add the additional code into the CSS edit window that you have a blank line in between them as follows.

    .post-date, .post-info {
    display: none;
    }
    
    .post {
    border: 2px solid;
    margin: 0 0 40px;
    padding: 15px;
    text-align: justify;
    }

    There aren’t any collisions between the selectors, so it has got to be something in the way you are pasting it in I think.

    That worked, sooo doing the custom css’s in separate sessions seems to be my problem in this case? pasting all css’s I want in one hit works!

    You should be able to go back in at anytime and add to what you have. Just make sure to have a blank line before you paste in the new stuff and you should be fine.

    This will get rid of the entire menu bar on the home page only.

    .home #access {
    display: none;
    }
