How to format text in "About Me" box? (5 posts)

    I have a problem formatting the text in the About Me box in the sidebar. At the moment the text is all bunched up on only the left side of the box. I would like the lines of text to cross the whole box, but I can't figure out which bit I need to change. Could someone please take a look at it for me and tell me how to do it?

    There are a couple of problems with your HTML in the about me section. I don't know if that is in the theme or what you entered.

    <h3>About Me</h3>
    <ul class="list3">

    [tried to show the code here, but it didn't work. Sorry.]

    The UL tag says you are starting a list, but each list item need to be surrounded in LI tags. Yours has none.

    You use BR tags to make space. I don't know if this is causing the text to be formated to the width it is instead of the width of the column, but I'd try wrapping it in a <p></p> instead.

    Those may help

    Change the width for .col3 to 320px.

    style.css (line 275)

    .col3 {
    border-left:1px solid #F2F1E9;
    display:inline;
    float:left;
    margin:0 0 0 10px !important;
    padding:0 0 0 10px !important;
    width:320px;
    }
