posts running together (7 posts)

    The blog posts on my website seem to be running together. It's only the first three posts, but they are overlapping. I'm not sure if this is a problem with the theme code or what.
    The problem is on this page: http://www.JessicaADoogan.com/portfolio

    Thanks very much!

    Hi Jesse,

    There's a quick way to find out if this is a problem with your theme. In your WP Admin, go to the Appearance->Themes page and select another theme and activate it (the WP Default theme is usually a good one). If the problem goes away, then it probably has something to do with the theme.

    Thanks. I've checked different themes, and it's a problem with just this one. Is there some problem in the code that I could fix?
    I'm really fond of this particular theme.

    If I had to guess, I'd say the theme was made available before it was tested very thoroughly. In particular, it appears that any "long" post will overlap the previous post. Also, given the placement of the "Read More" buttons, it looks like the coder intended for long posts to have just the first few lines appear, and you could click the "Read More" button to see the whole post.

    You could probably fix this if you knew a little html and had time to play with the code. Or you could bring it to the attention of the person who wrote it, though it is a free theme, so they may not have a lot of time to fix it.

    Edit style.css and look for:

    #featured {
    background:transparent url(images/featured.png) no-repeat center top;
    float:right;
    height:358px;
    margin:-35px 0 -13px;
    overflow:visible;
    padding:0;
    position:relative;
    width:632px;
    }
    .featured-content {
    height:237px;
    margin:0;
    padding:30px 40px 30px 35px;
    width:auto;
    }

    in both cases, delete the reference to height:nnnpx. The blog won't look so pretty but it will be readable.

    and while you're in there, add the following to the bottom of style.css:

    wp-caption {margin:0 10px 10px'}
    .caption-text {margin:0;padding:0;}

    That should place some margins on your images and bring the caption up closer to the image.

    Perfect! Thanks so much! I'm now readable. (Ahem, well, the text is readable. I'm not sure if my content is quite up to par. :) )

    I found that instead of making the CSS changes above, you can fix this by editing the Main Index Template (index.php) file and replace the code

    <?php the_content(''); ?>

    with

    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>

    It appears in there twice, once in the Featured section, and the repeating element section.
