WordPress K2 Theme Styles, Mods, Guide and Tips

After considering the massive number of current themes available for WordPress I’ve recently decided to go with the K2 theme. One of the main reasons I chose it is because it is a very flexible theme that allows you to make quite a few changes without having to edit the actual code. It also supports the automattic widget plugin. The latest version which I am running actually has its own included widget functionality which in my mind is better than the automattic version.

Once I decided to go with K2 the hunt for information on it began and it took me a little while to track much of it down so I thought I’d put that information here to help others.

  6. Change the line padding: 20px 0 10px; To padding: 0px 0 10px;
  7. Click the Update File button
  8. You’re done!

  1. Wouldn't it be better to do that in a seperate CSS file through the styling? That way, if you ever wanted to switch back you could just disable your custom style. Also, you can edit a style and know that it won't interfere with K2.
