    Hi all,

    Recently joined WordPress about a month ago and I'm massively impressed with the simplicity of it and how user friendly it is. I'm currently using the Minimalist theme by Joey Robinson, and I've already made a few tweaks. My HTML knowledge is limited even though I have already spent quite some time learning the basics (in order to do these tweaks) so I didn't have to come on here and annoy you lot with silly questions.

    Despite my best efforts, I have run into a little problem. Here's my site: http://www.constantincerdan.com/ - I've been trying for quite some time now, without success, to get the whole layout to shift to the left rather than sit in the centre. This would (hopefully) allow me to present the images next to each other rather than on top. I've included the stylesheet below. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm just a bit lost really.

    You need to remove the float:right; in #maincol in style.css

    Also, you should look into fixing your errors:

    Ah, thanks. I've done that and it has gone to the left but it's now far too low if you compare it to the way it should be: http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/minimalist. Do you know how I would fix that?

    Had no idea about the Validator. So many errors! I didn't realise I'd made that many. I'm not quite sure how to go about doing it, but I'll have a go!

    Sorry, nevermind, I've managed to fix it. Instead of removing float:right;, I just changed it to float:left; :). I'm now trying to figure out a way to increase the width of my posts (i.e. so I can have two photos side by side...if you click on the Conditions of Production post for example)..Aaaah

    Wish I could delete my posts. I've managed to fix that too. I seem to have post my problem and then 10 minutes of fiddling around it fix it. One last thing. Is there any way to get rid of the ugly wavey line that separates my posts? (you'll find it underneath the photographs when you click on one of the titles) Thanks for the help!

    How did you get the main column to stop dropping to the left and below the left sidebar/menu when reducing the width of the browser window?

    Check out my site at radicalundoing.com/undo

    to see what I mean, click on the tab on the bottom right corner of the browser window and drag it to the left until you see the central column drop to the left.

    Thanks much.
