Applying different style to center column in multi post pages only
Atahualpa has been excellent so far, and I've found answers on these forums to most of my questions, but here's one I couldn't find an answer to: is it possible to apply a different style to posts on the multi post pages (eg. when a category is selected) only? The formatting as it is for the home page and single post pages is fine, but for multi post pages I would like the excerpts to be a lot tighter together vertically (ie. reduced top/bottom padding/margin for body, header, footer, etc). With the current formatting, there is a lot of empty space on multi post pages between the headline and the body, and the body and the next post.

I imagine that I will have to add some PHP into The Loop, and a CSS insert.

Here is an example of a multi post category page with too much vertical spacing in it:

Thank you.

What you would do is create a bunch of CSS selectors and ruls based off the page type. To find the page type, go to the page and view the source. Look for '<body...'

In your example it is '<body class="archive category category-animation">' so you could now create selectors like
HTML Code:

body.category-animation div.post div.post-headline a {
    color: #EE0000;

this should change the color of the headline to a red on that page only. You can now address all the other things you want to do.

In this same vein, how can I apply a style so that the headlines on multi-post pages don't automatically center?

I'm building this site:

To imitate this one:

I tried to put in this CSS code:

.blog .post-headline {

To move the headline where I want it, but it shoved the centered headline over, taking the horizontal bar with it!

Any help greatly appreciated!
