Post divider line spacing?

I was able to get a post divider on my blog (which is not published yet) through research on this forum, but now I can't get any space added before the divider - ie it is too close to the footer info. Here is what I have:

div.post-footer {
display: block;
/* more ... */
margin-bottom: 20px;
padding-bottom: 10px;
border-bottom: dotted 1px #cccccc;


div.post-footer a:link,
div.post-footer a:visited,
div.post-footer a:active {
/* more ... */


div.post-footer a:hover {
/* more ... */

and changing the margin and padding doesn't work. Thoughts? Thanks in advance.

You should never have to edit style.css. The first step would be to see if there's a section in the theme options where you can add styles for the area you want to change. For the posts, there are many textareas where you can put CSS at Atahualpa Theme Options -> Post/Page styling.

When there's no such CSS textarea for a part of the layout, you can still avoid hard coding into style.css by adding those styles through HTML/CSS Inserts -> CSS Inserts. The CSS Inserts come after style.css and will overwrite what's there.

Look at A. Theme Options -> Post/Page Styling -> Footer Box. There's
HTML Code:
 margin: 0;
padding: 5px;
It overwrites whatever you put into style.css.

You can also get space between posts by putting the bottom padding into A. Theme Options -> Post/Page Styling -> Post Container
