    There is no one specific place for that. The areas to check would be the Blog related stylevars:

    Admin CP -> Styles & Templates -> Style Manager -> style name -> StyleVars -> Blog

    And the Blog templates:

    Admin CP -> Styles & Templates -> Style Manager -> Edit Templates -> Blog Templates

        You can always find the template by doing this - vboptions > General Settings > Add Template Name in HTML Comments > set to Yes . Then go back to your page and view the source code and you will see the name of the template called around your part of the code. (Sometimes the template is the one mentioned at the very top of the page source.)

        (The blog page you get to when clicking the Blogs link in the navbar is the template BLOG)

        If I post CSS and you don't know where it goes, throw it into the additional.css template.

          thanks for the top lynne,

          but my problem is "$content" in the "BLOG" template, in other words I wanna edit "$blogbits".

          I think I have found $blogbits in blog_home template , but I cant still edit blogs coz there a variable called "$recentblogbits", and I dont know how to edit it.

          regards.

            Get a good text editor and then you can enter a searchterm like "$recentblogbits" and search in a directory (the blog directory) to find where that variable is defined.

                I use BBEdit and I can search a directory for a word like "$recentblogbits". When I do this, I get 11 hits in 2 files (the .xml file showing the template doesn't count) - blog.php and blog_functions_main.php I don't know what I would go without an editor that searches files in a directory. I use that function *all* the time!

                    No, BBEdit is not free. It's also a Mac application only.

                        Try editplus2 .. I seem to recall a 'search in all open files' command somewhere.
