Hi .. Is there a way to loosen the line spacing and word spacing in the post? Currently I only found the Body, Text & Links at ATO where I changed font-size to 0.7em; at Body Style - bit too small but if I use 0.8em it became too packed, suffocating. I prefer the look (spacing) of this blog, the Atahualpa is bit to jammed.

What's padding and kicker? I'm trying to reduce the font size of the post title too ..

Thanks.

Kicker is a typography term, I should probably have used "Section heading" http://desktoppub.about.com/library/...def-kicker.htm

Padding is the inner space of an element, the space between the element's border and its content

Use a CSS Insert to set line-height of posts .e.g

div.post-bodycopy {
line-height: 1.5em;
}

I just tried putting "line-height:1.5em;" (without the quotes) in the Body Box under the Style Post and Pages section and it worked nicely.

This worked nicely for me, too. BUT, it doesn't work to use "text-indent" or "text-align" codes in that box. (I'd like to justify the post body text and use a first-line indent.)

I assume I can alternatively put those codes in a CSS Insert as Flynn suggested. But I don't know where to put it. Doesn't seem to be an option to do that in the "Body, Text & Links" section. (Or the "Configure CSS & JS" section, etc.) Do I put it in the style.css file using the WordPress editor? Thanks in advance.

I tried using text-indent:10px; in the Body Box and it indented the first line of all but the home page in the little bit if testing I did.

That didn't work for me in any pages. Still stumped by this one. There has to be a place to change the CSS code for the body text - or? Is everything in Atahualpa done only through the Atahualpa Options dialogs? I.e., is there no place to make other tweaks using CSS?
