Wordpress Site Formatting Help

Discussion in 'CSS' started by RealAssist, Nov 7, 2014.

    Hi All,
    I'm having trouble with a Wordpress Blog I maintain. http://laurenstadjuharrealty.com/blog/ The titles and verbiage are getting rather jumbled. I'm told I just need a bit of CSS help but I really don't even know where to begin with that. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks, kindly, for any help.

    The best way is to go to http://www.htmldog.com/guides/css/beginner/ and start learning some CSS basics. I will never understand how anyone can think that they are going to maintain a web site without learning how to code. I guess the lies from products like Wordpress inferring that anyone can be a web developer is partly to blame, but it is mind-boggling to see the number of gullible people who think they are developers when their only related skill is ability to use some mediocre too.

    Do yourself and the world a favor; if you want to do development learn the necessary basic skills.

    I just saw your website, the separator line are not coming at a good position. To make the black line look good so that it does not cut over the below div put the following code -
    <div style="clear:both;"></div>
    after:-
    <a href="http://laurenstadjuharrealty.com/what-do-buyers-and-sellers-pay-in-closing-costs/" class="readmorelink" title="READ MORE | What Do Buyers and Sellers Pay in Closing Costs?">...READ MORE</a>


    Just see w3schools.org for more .

    W3schools.org is best source to learn CSS (now CSS3 is available). You will see get the editing mode where u can easily apply code and see the result. Practice every sessions step by step. But to learn it in detailed you need to be good at HTML as well. Hope you know HTML basics. That would be enough.

    Thanks

    Do you know about theme files?
    if not, than go to wp-content/theme/your-theme-directory/style.css.php
    There you can make or change all theme styles.

    and if you want to learn CSS from scratch. Than below site is very good sources. This is also my first teacher :)

    w3schools is frequently out of date. Contains incorrect information and presents thing in a rather childish way.

    If you are going to be serious about web development then start with a professional approach to learning by using the tutorial facilities available from W3C; the standards setting body and the authoritative source about the correct way to use web technologies.
    http://www.w3.org/Style/Examples/011/firstcss.en.html

    W3schools gets posted in forums like this all the time because they play up to Google so they come up high in the SERPs in spite of being a mediocre source for anything other than quick references.
