Any guesses how I broke it?
Did you want to have your pictures on the right, and the text to the left of the pics and then wrapping around it?

You can only achieve that effect using an align argument. So your code for the image would look like this:

<img src="http://blahblah.com/images/blah.jpg" align="right" hspace=5 vspace=5>

(You'll want the hspace and vspace to create spacing around the image so the text doesn't touch it.)

Your site is looking great!

I assume you're talking about the post title on Dec. 26th? The caption that it's up against is floating. Try adding "clear: both;" to your h2s in your css and see if that helps.

Hi Kirez - thanks for the compliment!

I actually do not want the text to wrap around the pictures - I want it to stay separate. It looks like my image gallery from the 12/27 posting might be making stuff mad, but I don't know how to correct this. The heading "workout of doom" is smooshed up against my image gallery, and it definitely doesn't like being crowded.

Re: Official WordPress users thread.

Jennie - no, don't! Don't use the "align" tag, and don't mess with the clears. All that stuff is being handled through your stylesheet/css selectors.

It's just in the code to each of your posts, and we can get that cleaned up, no problem. What we don't want to do is a) mess with the align tag, because that's deprecated code, and b) introduce css code into the html markup.

We want to keep your inputs clean, your site consistent, and have the ability to change things moving forward without having to go back in and tweak the code in umpteen numbers of posts.

I'll call you.

Could you explain that last part to me as if you were explaining it to your Mom?

Re: Official WordPress users thread.

What Eric is talking about is in your CSS; but it shouldn't be necessary. Don't sweat it.

I was referring to the second-level headings that comprise your post titles - they're between h2 tags: <h2></h2>. I was talking about selecting them on your style sheet and using "clear" to make sure the title stayed on its own line. Of course, I meant to do this in the css - all presentational aspects of a page should be handled in the css.

Obviously Adam has it under control, I'm coming late to the party. That's one of the most organized style sheets I think I've seen, Adam.

Thanks, Eric. I'm playing with two different ways of writing stylesheets, grouping them differently... I'm finding that a hybrid approach saves much, much time.

For reference's sake: The principle Eric is talking about (clearing floats) is right on; the problem wasn't with the h2's, though, it was with the gallery function. Once that had the right clear, everything smoothed out again just fine.

Happy to share more ('bout CSS or this clear thing) if anyone's interested.

I'm also available for site building using WordPress if anyone is interested.

Can you figure out why our stupid webpage won't let me re-size the left sidebar like I did to the right sidebar? I did pretty much the exact same thing, and it came out all screwed up. Plus I tried a few other things and none of them worked either... I may just dump this theme for another one anyhow though... www.motorcitycrossfit.com (w/f safe)

Re: Official WordPress users thread.

Hi Matt,

Your current theme uses background images in each of its three divs for its borders, which are notorious for being a PITA to resize. It means you have to change multiple images, basically.

Honestly, going forward, your best bet is going to be to switch themes I wouldn't mention it normally, because people can get really attached to a theme but since you brought it up... it's just easier to not deal with so many background images.

If you go looking for a new theme, and want some feedback about ones you're considering, go ahead and post them here. I'm happy to take a look, and let you know how easy (or not) it's going to be to customize them.

Have a great New Year,
Adam
