    Hi again,

    I’m sure this is pretty simple,

    Just wondering how you can insert a heading with underline throughout the content of a page? Screenshot below should hopefully explain what I mean!

    Many thanks

    Hello,

    This isn’t something that’s designed to be put throughout your content. This is how the header of posts/pages is styled. If you wanted a similar effect, you’d need to style either some specific class or h1, h2, h3, etc, tags in general to look like this.

    This would be a customization you’d need to make, but this will get you started —

    h1, 
    h2, 
    h3 {
    	border-bottom: 5px solid #f2f2f2;
    	margin-bottom: 15px;
    	padding: 0 10px;
    }

    For CSS changes, it’s a good idea to use a tool like firebug or Google Chrome’s built-in developer tools to locate them and then put the edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

    Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – http://vimeo.com/20917974. The only thing I’d suggest not doing is actually making edits to the theme’s CSS files, as it shows at the end of that video. However, the video serves as a good introduction to Firebug and how it can be used to find what CSS is effecting certain areas of your site without ever digging around in any files.
