Hi, I'm a beginner with website building and in the process of building a wordpress website for my first website for my aunt. I'm building a directory of posts on the site and am trying to edit the appearance of a post list plugin, but I cannot work out how to access the CSS for this plugin. This is the plug in I am using: http://wordpress.org/plugins/category-post-shortcode/other_notes/
and this is how it looks on the page at the moment:
http://www.katrinaallen.co.uk/articles/tennisreal-tennissport/

Could anyone tell me how I would go about editing the appearance of this directory?

Hi gus12, I'm not sure what

Hi gus12,
I'm not sure what you are trying to do to it, but the page you linked to explains what to do.

style at your own * you need to style your category-post-shortcode plugin in your style.css example

.cat-post{ width:100%; } .cat-post-list{ display: block; margin-bottom: 20px; position: relative;
 
} .cat-post-images{ float:left; width:140px; display:block; }
 
.cat-content{ width:350px; float:right; } .cat-post-title{ display: block; width:100%; } .cat-post-date{ display: block; width:100%; } .cat-clear{ clear:both; }

Probably use the /themes/discover/style.css file

Hi, thanks for your reply.

Hi, thanks for your reply. I'm sure this seems like an incredibly obvious question, but this is the first time i've used CSS! I suppose what i'm basically asking is do you just add the code for the plugin straight into your CSS stylesheet? Could I for example just copy and paste that code at the end of the stylesheet?

Yes you could, and if you are

Yes you could, and if you are lucky it would work Smile
It depends on what other styles are already there that may affect things, but give it a try you can always remove or adjust it.
