How to make post text wrap around 'related posts' 'tags' and 'about the aut (8 posts)

    Hi there, I'm fairly new to WordPress, and this is mashing my head up. Basically, I'm wondering how I can make the text in my post wrap around the little section on the top left of the post that says 'related posts' 'tags' and 'about the author'. Or even how to move these to another place? The reason I want to do this is because the body of my theme (Telegraph theme) is small and there is a massive piece of white space running down the right of the posts, which you can see here.

    I know it may have something to do with rearranging things in single.php but that's as far as I've gotten. Any help would be amazing.

    I mean a massive piece of white space running down the LEFT not right of the posts. Thanks.

    You have a "comming soon" page blocking your site...

    rearranging things in single.php

    Hopefully you have not yet done that :)?? May just be CSS changes needed.

    Before changing anything, be sure to create a child theme -- so your changes won't get erased when the theme is updated.

    Hi there, thanks so much for the quick reply! It really is appreciated.

    Completely forgot about the coming soon, it's disabled now so you should hopefully be able to have a look? And no I haven't done that just yet as I didn't know what to do! Also don't have a child theme yet, which I will do right now. I've already made changes (background etc.) will they automatically go with the child theme?

    And I really don't understand CSS, the theme has a custom.css tab, so you can use that instead of overwriting anything, but I don't know what to put in there to move the tab. Here's the link again, anything you know would be fantastic! Thanks.

    With custom.css, you don't need a child theme unless you want to edit other theme files. Still can't see the site and I'm about to get off for a few hours... A great tool for CSS is firebug -- add on for Firefox, and a good reference page is here:

    If you want to do much customization to your site, you'll be well served by learning some basic CSS -- otherwise, it's quite frustrating :)! There are also many good tutorials and videos out there - -which may also be helpful.

    Hi there, the site is back up now if you can take a quick look? And I've just downloaded firebug so I'll give it a go. Thanks again for helping me.

    Okay, it looks like you would need to create custom template and move some page elements around. I don't have time right now, but can check back on it later if no one else picks it up.

    This will start you on it:

    I think you would need to put this <div class="metabox"> section inside this one <div class="single"> and then adjust the CSS...

    Okay, I'll have a crack at doing that then. Thanks a lot for spending time to point me in the right direction!
