If you would like to frame the images in your blog posts like the one to the right, all you need to do is add a couple of lines to your CSS file and add the class attribute to your image tags. Don’t worry, don’t worry! I plan to provide step by step instructions.
Once this is set up, all of your images will be framed and padded in the same way, which really helps in making a blog look more professional.
OK – here we go!
**Note – I am using the most current version of WordPress. If you are using 2.3 or lower, some of the settings in the Admin area may be in different locations. Also, please upgrade!! If you need assistance with that, send me an email or a direct message on Twitter and we can discuss. My contact information is in the sidebar to the right.
- Go to Design > Theme Editor > styles.css
- Copy all of the text in this file and paste it into Word or your preferred text editor. I always back up the original in case I make a mistake or don’t like the changes. The backup allows me to quickly paste the original text back into the file.
