How to change style of Wordpress, Joomla!... CMS's

While it took me some time to find the best practice, I'm going to provide you with the easiest and fastest way to style your CMS (Wordpress, Joomla!) template, it is very simple actually: just open your blog / website with the template, look at the source code (you'll find an option 'View Source Code' or something similar in most of the browsers right-clicking anywhere on the page), locate the id's and classes you would like to modify, then go ahead and make a source code (or in file text) search among the template files (preferably .css) for the specific id or class name and change it as you please.

If you don't find the one you're looking for, try to do another search you're sure it should find (making sure your search is being done correctly). If that is found, then most probably there's no style set for that id or class. In this case you can simply add it to your .css file and style it the way you want to. There's really nothing complicated about this. ;)
