Issue with typography on The Columnist (7 posts)

    Hello!

    I write a blog on life as a French expat in London, I give tips on how to get settled here, get a flat that sort of thing and also write about cultural things to do here, local things and places to go etc.

    I am trying to make my site looks nicer and I have two issues:

    1)Does anyone know if I can alter the fact that on my homepage, when you look at the extracts of my posts, the text under the thumbnail images abruptly stops after one word on the last line before the "Continue Reading" link? I don't know if this is something I can change and where to change it. Is it a width issue, a number of words issue?

    2)I am having the hardest time to make these bits of text look good. I know loads of people think against justifying text but I don't like at all those unordered pyramid steps that unjustified text gets on one of its sides. What I did is mess with the word-spacing (-0.3) and I know it does look a bit weird so if you have any advice on code that can make my justified text look better, I'd love to try out your suggestions.

    Thank you so much to anyone who is willing to help!

    code that can make my justified text look better

    Not likely, as justify just looks weird and is not easy to read. Most people avoid it for those reasons. But if you post a link to your site, someone may be able to help you with that and your other question.

    Looks like your site is hosted on WordPress.COM -- so you'll need to post your questions on the forums there: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/

    These forums are for self-hosted WordPress.ORG sites -- yeah, it's kinda confusing -- this explains the difference:

    Thank you for helping and quite fast too! I'll go post there. Should I delete this myself or does an admin do it?

    Thank you again, much appreciated!

    Threads here are not deleted per forum policy -- but it's not a problem to have it here -- happens all the time :). It may even help someone else who is using the same theme as you and comes across this one!
