Help with my first Wordpress Theme (Continued)

Hey I'm back for more help with my first Wordpress theme.

I've made some progress and the theme is looking more like it should but there seems to be a lot more work to do to get it right.

The next thing I need to work on is the Content and Sidebar Styling.#
(Later I'll need help in making my current navigation into a proper Wordpress menu, at least)

So the question this time is what is all the CSS I need to add to my style sheet so that all the Content) Posts, headlines, dates, sub-headlines are formatted the way I want?

I downloaded Firefox & Firebug as suggested in my last post but don't really know how I can use them to help me.

I've attached my Theme and it's live here burninghand.co.uk/blog

Thanks in advance

With fire bug you can  see in real time which css is applied from firefox to the tags by using inspect element. You can even see where in which file are the css that are active for this browser. You can make changes in css and see in real time the result for the browser.

How are we supposed to know what it is you want? :)

This isn't really a good question...it's too broad and too vague.  That being said, if you can focus it, I'm sure you will get some help.

I also also urge you to read:


as it will give you lots of good advice for building the theme.

I should've been more specific but that guide is helpful and I have a better idea of what I'm doing and will post back when I know exactly where I need help.
