Hi experts,

I have just finished my website www.freedomfighterclub.org. and had an issue with 2 white sidebars on the side of my homepage.

I was advised by a member of EE to add the code below to remove. This worked perfectly but now I cannot add a curve to my homepage page. My theme does have the function but it doesnt seem to function since the code below was added to my custom.css.

Is there any way I can add the curve in directly from one of the editor sheets. Please advise.  

#wrap { padding: 0!important; }

Change #wrap padding to:

padding: 10px 0px 20px;

Open in new window


and remove:

#wrap { padding: 0!important; }

Open in new window


it should work perfectly.

Well.. Please specify what curve are you talking about...

if you are talking about the border curves then add...

border-radius: 10px;

I just did the above and its the same as before (not right).

Please take a look at my website again and you will see the white border around my main page. www.freedomfighterclub.org

I think it would be ok if the white border was BLACK.

Is there any way to change the colour?

An important part of learning any new piece of software is understanding the terminology it uses. Thankfully WordPress uses fairly simple names for everything that make it easy to start using the software.

this is not a border, it's your page, but it has a padding, which makes it look just like a border.

Modify your #wrap css to...

#wrap {
border-radius: 20px;
-moz-border-radius: 20px;
-webkit-border-radius: 20px;
box-shadow: 0px 1px 3px rgba(0,0,0,.2);
-moz-box-shadow: 0px 1px 3px rgba(0,0,0,.2);
-webkit-box-shadow: 0px 1px 3px rgba(0,0,0,.2);
margin: 30px auto;
border-left: 20px solid black;
border-right: 20px solid black;
border-bottom: 20px solid black;
}

Open in new window

Now you might be having a border on the top...

This is because of the h1.page-title now if you remove that it will be removed from every single page with h1.page-title...

But if you want that to be removed.. then add this to your stylesheet....

h1.page-title {
border-bottom: 0px !important;
}
