    Hello, I'm having trouble similar to droidmodderx's problem with Skirmish. I am getting overlap with the text on the right sidebar, but only with Chrome. It works fine on Firefox and IE. I've tried this.. http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fthechiropracticforum.com%2F&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&ss=1&outline=1&group=0&No200=1&verbose=1&st=1&user-agent=W3C_Validator%2F1.3 but I honestly don't know what it means or what I need to do to fix it.

    Please help!

    Note: this will also change your post content's width on individual post pages. If you need an expert's advice, please wait for more replies

    Locate the following in your theme CSS file:

    .entry-content, .entry-summary {
    margin: 1.5em 0 0;
    }

    And replace it with this:

    .entry-content, .entry-summary {
    margin: 1.5em 0 0;
    width: 600px;
    }

    You're right in that seems to work for the front page, but it ends up making it look a little awkward when you actually view the page individually.

    Thanks for your input.

    Does anyone else know if I can get the best of both worlds? Having the correct size on both the front page and individually on chrome?

    I possibly found a solution for you:

    undo what I wrote in the last post.

    Instead, find .entry and make sure it looks like this:

    .entry {
    margin: 0 0 10px 145px;
    overflow: hidden;
    width: 600px;}

    (in short, add width: 600px;)

    This should work since entry is only defined in your homepage.

    Hey SlowClicksDotCom. I have another problem but it doesn't seem like anyone can help me, so I'm hoping that you can. You can check my profile for my question but I'll just post it here..

    "My dropdown menu for my "list of schools" is way too long and I would love to make it into two columns to be more user friendly (something like these dropdown menus... http://www.ns.nl/). I'm terrible with coding and have tried to understand the whole "ul ul li" thing but I'm afraid to mess everything up. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!"

    If you can somehow figure that out, then I would be extremely grateful.

    Hi!
    I also have the problem with overlap of text with Skirmish shown in Chrome (www.bornebogs.dk). I tried to fix it by adding "width: 600px;" to .entry in the stylesheet-editor, but it does not seem to work. Are there perhaps any other way to fix that? Kind regards!

    Hi,

    I have the same problems as Enel and I have tried both methods that SlowClicksDotCom provided, but neither works.

    Anyone got suggestions?

    Enel, I found your problem seems fixed.
