    Hi. On my homepage I have posts in a 3 columns display incl sidebar. I guess these are little questions so I put it all in one post.
    1. How can I get a border around each of my postings?
    2. How can I get a shadow effect for the entire Homepage content area (incl header, navigation, postings, sidebar and footer.
    3. Can I extend the width of the sidebar a little?
    Thanks, Ernst-Wilhelm

    Hi there,

    can you share a link to your site so i can see the layout.

    Question 2 needs to be extended, would like to change the background color as well, so that you can distinguish background content area and background left and right. It’s a clone from https://r-mediabase.eu. We think about a change to that website but want to keep that look at least on the frontpage.

    Thank you.

    1. Try this CSS:

    .inside-article, .sidebar .widget {
        border: 1px solid #000;
    }

    2. Try this CSS to change the background color of home page.

    .home .site.grid-container {
        background-color: #ffffff;
    }

    The shadow is a little more complicated but this should help:

    3. Try the customizer option first:

    Please try to keep one question per topic in the future – we don’t mind if you open multiple topics:

    Just much easier to track the issue one by one.

    Thanks

    Leo. My apologies for breaking your rules. Yes I fully understand. Tracking and serving the queue is much better when keeping the rules.

    Answer 3 exactly what I want, thank you.
    Answer 1: Can we make the borer setting work for a single page as well?

    Answer 2:
    a) I followed your advice within the documentation, not taking care to the note at the end. Looks very good, only thing is that the most left border of the most left post box and the most right border from the widget sidebar on the right side are exactly on the left and right border of the site grid container.
    b) Taking care ot the note removes issue a) but raises another issue. The background color setting of the post box gets lost and is replaces by the background color setting of the site grid container. If you want to take a look: https://test.r-mediabase.eu
    c) Can we make the background color setting work for a single page as well?

    Thank you, Ernst-Wilhelm

    Answer 2b: I forgot another issue. The featured image takes more space than unter 2a). Not it is ‘fullfilling’ the post box in the upper part of the box, margin settings are lost.

    1: Edited the CSS above so it should work globally:

    Please open a separate topic for #2 as you can see it’s starting to get messy.

    Thanks.
