[resolved] Style questions (6 posts)

    Tried searching, couldn't find anything. For reference, my blog is located here.

    3 questions...

    1) I changed the date format to be the shortened version of the month ("M" instead of "F") and it displays correctly on the home page. But every other page displays incorrectly even though it reads from the same stylesheet. Ideas?

    2) Page displays correctly in FF and Safari, but the menu items get chopped off about halfway down in IE. I've experimented quite a bit in the stylesheet with heights of header objects, but I can't figure this one out. Any suggestions?

    3) Next to the date it says "posted on ..." and the date currently displays as Day Month Year even though I have changed the option to Month Day Year. I'm sure there's a stylesheet somewhere that I need to change, too, but don't know which one it would be. TIA.

    I did some more searching and found the following thread that helped me fix Questions #1 and #3.

    #2 usually is caused by an element to wide for its parent div. It can be in the sidebar, in the content... an image, a long link, a long code line etc.
    A search for "sidebar down IE" would give you a lot of ides.

    Thanks for the reply.

    The issue isn't in the sidebar, but the header. Would that matter?

    Okay, after much trial and error in the style.css file, I finally hit the solution. I increased the numeric value in the "#header_center" id and it solved the problem.

    (If anyone faces the same issue, I was modifying the DottedArt theme. Hopefully you can use what I learned to speed the process on for you!)
