05. Main Column - Alpha Containers

Your main content is nested in two containers, #alpha and #alpha-inner. This container holds your entries, navigation for those entries, and any potential headers, such as tag headers. These IDs separate your entry area from your sidebar area, however even if you're using a one column layout these IDs will still apply; you just won't have a #beta or #gamma (or anything unique to their inner contents) available to style.

this contains all entry navigation, headers, and entries

The #alpha container has very little base styling, just a background, border, and padding; all of these are reset in my cleaned CSS. You can leave it as-is if you don't want anything styled around your entry housing.


The nested #alpha-inner container has no base styling, and you can delete this from your stylesheet if you don't need it.


The #alpha container has its own link styling separate from the page links. If you want your link styling to be uniform, you'll want to copy the styling for the page links into this styling as well.

#alpha a, #alpha a:visited{color:#acbf60;}
#alpha a:hover{text-decoration:underline;}
