[SOLVED] How to create indented paragraphs in posts?

The default in Atahualpa is for block paragraphs in posts (i.e., without any indentation of the first line of each paragraph).

I want my posts to have indented paragraphs. This shouldn't be difficult, but despite all my searching of the Atahualpa Theme Options and this forum, I can't find the solution.

I am a CSS dummy, so please keep explanations at that level ;^).

Using Atahualpa 3.6.7.

Many thanks!

Eric

Hi juggledad.

I found these examples—

p {
margin: 0;
text-indent: 1.5em;

<style>
<!--
.tab { margin-left: 40px; }
-->
</style>

p
{
text-indent:50px;
}

all of which closely resemble Flynn's advice—

div.post p {
text-indent: 20px;
}

from http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?t=1127 (April 2009).

But I have put Flynn's code into HTML/CSS Inserts, to no avail in Safari, Chrome, and Firefox. I even cleared the cache in Chrome, just to make sure. I even created a test post, after inserting the code. All to no avail.

Any ideas?

Eric

HTML Code:
div.post p {
text-indent: 20px;
}
Works for me on your site. Where are you putting the CSS. I don't see div.post p in your CSS.

lmilesw: THANK YOU!

I was putting the code into HTML/CSS Inserts in Atahualpa Theme Options.

Putting it into the css.php file, in the section headed "POST CONTAINER", did the trick.

Thanks again!

Eric

You shouldn't edit css.php. You SHOULD just put it in the CSS Inserts. Editing css.php will not survive an upgrade.
