Clicking on individual post title changes the layout. (5 posts)

    Hi,
    When I (or anybody) clicks on the title of an individual blog posting, it takes the user to the post in question.

    However, the layout changes as well. The columns get much wider and it looks ugly. This has only started happening since yesterday, when I had my banner changed.

    My website is:

    thanks

    Even your blog page is not OK - compared to other parts like "Book".

    As for the single post view: try to edit your comments.php file and change this line:
    <textarea name="comment" id="comment" cols="100%" rows="10" tabindex="4">
    replace the 100% with some number, e.g. 65 or 70.

    thanks so much for the quick response!

    I've got one other dumb question, but I've had a programmer do just about everything for me.

    Where do I find the line you just referred to - 1) do i log in through my site or 2) on my host?

    None of the above :)

    Actually, you could use the online Theme Editor (WP admin > Presentation > Theme Editor), but that's not a safe thing! And you will come back saying that the file is not writable etc...

    Normally, all the theme files should be edited on your computer in a plain text editor (like Notepad, never Word!) and uploaded via ftp to the host server.

    As I said above: it should be in your theme's folder in the file called comments.php.
