Blog ~ Twenty Sixteen Theme Cascading Style Sheet [CSS], 03/15

The Ides of March are upon us…

Still a few more refinements–5 today

.widget_jetpack_display_posts_widget .jetpack-display-remote-posts h4 {
/* Change sidebar text of poizontalsted articles titles; italic, 03/15 */
font-size: 10px;
font-style: italic;
font-weight: 400;
line-height: 1.2;
margin: 5px 0 3px;
text-align: center;

.site-main > article {
/* set the spacing after an article–5.0em [80px] to 4.0em [64px], 03/15 */
margin-bottom: 4em;
} img {
/* Remove the 5px given to img below, 03/15 */
padding-top: 0;

img {
/* Top of article images too close, especially w/a 1st line link, 03/15 */
padding-top: 5px;

.widget_jetpack_display_posts_widget .jetpack-display-remote-posts a img {
/* position posted articles feature images in landscape, NEW 03/15 */
width: 100%;
margin-left: 0;

I modified properties in the first two paragraphs and added the last two. I do not give line numbers because they will change. The are in the order shown within the Twenty Sixteen CSS.


  1. Italicized characters use less horizontal space.
  2. Removed more white space between articles–from 80 px to 64 px.
  3. Took away 5px of top padding for the featured image. The 5px came from the top padding added to images.
  4. Added 5px of vertical space to the top of images so the image does not crowd the line of text above it. The image touched link underscores.
  5. Added so Last 10 Article images are centered when orientation changes from portrait to landscape.
