  1. Hi everyone, I'm using Ian's Thematic theme for my blog and sometimes I like to post short little updates rather than long posts. On ThemeShaper he files these under 'asides' and their automatically formatted so on the blog they appear with a left border, no title, no date and no by _____. I would love to get this for my blog. Can anyone help me out with this please? Maybe provide me with some CSS code?

    Thanks, Elliot

  2. It was Andy Skelton (co-creator of The Sandbox) who came up with that one first.

    Although I currently use a somewhat modified technique …

    body.home div.category-asides * {
    body.home div.category-asides .entry-title,
    body.home div.category-asides .entry-meta,
    body.home div.category-asides .page-link {
    body.home div.category-asides {
        margin:21px 0 42px 0;
        padding:0 0 0 59px;
        border-left:1px solid #e0e0e0;
    body.home div.category-asides .entry-content {
    body.home div.category-asides blockquote {
    body.home div.category-asides .comments-link {
        margin:0 0 0 .125em;

    This was very helpful, along with Andy's post. Thank you for explaining how to do it.

    But is there any way at all, CSS or otherwise, to get <p> and <blockquote> elements to break properly? Apparently I'm too verbose to fit into one paragraph. Thank you for your time, and for the great theme.
