This is the twenty eighth in a series of live lessons on using WordPress and Thesis as a Content Management System (CMS).

Video Transcript

Rick: Okay let’s see, Pam, I’ll turn you back on here for a second. So what do you think about that?

Pam: It looks good. I would… well, I don’t want to be too fussy because I know I fuss around if it’s myself. I personally would put topics colon and then the topic on the same line and I’d rather not have them be underlined. But that’s a pretty shy level of detail. Other than that, I think that the site is great.

Rick: Okay well, let’s go ahead and add this to our… I mean, I’m going to go ahead and make that change too because it’s fairly easy to do. So let’s go ahead and add this to our custom CSS file because before… I want to get to rid of the semi-colons. We’ve been talking about that for weeks now, it seems like and I’ve got it all figured out. So custom CSS, single post display… okay, there we go.

Save that document, let’s upload both documents, let’s refresh this.
