Hey man,

Have you tried custom styling on those element by targeting only elements that are direct child elements?

section > article {
/* some padding */

article > aside {
/* some background color */

the UL and LI combo is rendered automatically with default styles by the browser, it would just be a case of adding you own from there.

...I hope this is what you meant any way. lol. If not, let me know and I'll think on it a bit more :)

EDIT: If you are using a CSS framework, have a peak under the hood and change the ->>

ul[id^='small-block-grid-'] > li {
    display: inline-block;


section[id^='small-block-grid-'] > article {
    display: inline-block;

or something similar.

Am i closer this time? :)
