comment text wraps too narrow (5 posts)

    I'm working on a photoblog at http://www.memestreets.com. I'm using a theme called 'phT' which was built specifically to use the YetAnotherPhotoBlog plug-in - however, the theme seems to be no longer supported by it's author.

    I've worked for a long time on this and it's just about ready to go - but I've discovered that posted comments wrap at about a third of the space allotted for them, MOST of the time - meaning now and then, the text flows to the full width of the text area - but mostly it looks like the comments are in blank verse... not my plan.

    Crucial to the design of the theme is the fact that the overall width of the blog content is governed by choosing a standard width of the photos posted in a functions template; I plug in 500 pixels and the entire blog snaps to this width. The theme is designed to do this, so it doesn't seem it should be restricting the comment text. I find nothing in the stylesheet which controls this, there is no comment template which comes with the theme, and in fact the PHP include simply calls out to the WP comment_template:

    <?php comments_template(); ?>

    I'm at a loss as to why it's happening or how to fix it - particularly since it happens sometimes and not others. Obviously I don't want to start over with a different theme at this late date.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    To see the problem, go to the URL, click "Yesterdays Photo". The post with the red white and blue spiral shows you the wrapping problem with the comment.

    Thanks

    .post h3 {
    	float:right;
    	text-align:right;
    	margin-bottom:1px;
    }

    removing the float:right; fixes that. I dont know what other effects it might have.

    Dang! That works!

    Thanks for your help in two matters, Whooami:
    1.reminding me to post direct links and 2. fixing my comment problem.

    Blessings be upon you for both.
