What to I need to delete in my css?

    In a continuation of a conversion from the other support site, I was asking how I get the background of my .article-wrap to look like notebook paper. I am almost there … But I need to “fix” one section and cannot figure out how. Firebug is not giving me any hints and/or I am not sure of the css syntax to make it happen.

    I have cut my custom.css down to nothing except the notebook paper …

    This gets me ‘almost’ there …

    .article-wrap {
        padding: 37px 55px 27px;
        position: relative;
        border: 1px solid #B5B5B5;
        background: white;
        background: -webkit-linear-gradient(top, #DFE8EC 0%, white 8%) 0 57px;
        background: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #DFE8EC 0%, white 8%) 0 57px;
        background: linear-gradient(top, #DFE8EC 0%, white 8%) 0 57px;
        -webkit-background-size: 100% 30px;
        -moz-background-size: 100% 30px;
        -ms-background-size: 100% 30px;
        background-size: 100% 30px;
    .article-wrap::before {
    content:""; z-index:-1; margin:0 1px; width:706px; height:10px;
    position:absolute; bottom:-3px; left:0; background:white;
    border:1px solid #B5B5B5;}
    .article-wrap::after {
    content:''; position:absolute; width:0px; top:0;
    left:39px; bottom:0; border-left:1px solid #F8D3D3;}

    Any ideas on how to delete/alter that final element and line the text up?

    Thanks a million!!!

    It’s the article tag within that currently has the box styling around it, not the article-wrap div.

    article {
      background: transparent;
      border: none;
      padding: 0;

    Just tested … Thank you so much! I appreciate it.

    Now I’ll work on lining up the text 🙁

    Thanks again!


    Because getting line-height and the distance between the notebook paper lines is going to be maddening! LOL!


    Ok … Got it. Set the distance between lines and the line height in the article the same, then padded from the top. (Almost perfect). But I have a question because you are the CSS master … and I’ve run into this issue with other themes as well.

    If you look at my test page:

    You see the first paragraph and the letters are *right on* the lines of the notebook paper.

    The second paragraph, they are slightly offset (and perfect for me). But there is some difference between the paragraphs.

    I thought it was because there was a carriage return between paragraphs, but I am not sure. I put a at the beginning of the first paragraph with no love. Any thoughts?


    p {
    margin-bottom:25px !important;
