Tabula rasa

All righty, I put a new template style on that, being blank, should be easier to personalize, and that seems easier to read (I don't know about you, but I found that small grey type to be pretty eye-hostile). The proportions seem a little off on my computer, but I've noticed blogs look different on different machines, so maybe it's OK to most people. I'm hunting around for coding info, and as I get the hang of it I hope to beautify the place.

UPDATE: OK, got a tip from Movable Type's board that fixed the problem. On my computer at least. If anyone sees anything else funny, let me know.

Ehhh... try changing the width of the .content class on your stylesheet. 68% seems to work best as a value... :-)

Huh. I've looked over my stylesheet thoroughly and I can't see the part you speak of. The closest thing I see is this:

#content {
border:1px solid #FFF;

I don't seem to have a width option...

Much easier to read! Thank you :)

I'm seeing it just fine now in my browser. Looking good!

You can add the width to the content just by putting this line right under "border:1px solid #FFF;"


Or whatever number of pixels you want. Assuming that is what you want to do of course. Instead of spreading out indefinintely on the right, it will make the text have a right margin the way my blog looks.
