Width Problems (3 posts)

    I have customised Semilogic theme on my site here: http://www.filmdetail.com/. However, when I view it on other monitors the width is too far to the right. Id there any way of getting a fixed width? Also, when I view a single post (like this: http://www.filmdetail.com/archives/2006/01/19/bafta-nominations-announced/) the calendar collapses and the text on the sidebar shifts to the right. Is this a CSS error of soemthing wrong with the template. If anyone has any solutions I would be very grateful.

    Hello icerve,

    Your custom project looks very clean, you did a great job with it.

    I am viewing your site using Firefox, and on my screen, there is precisely the same space for a border on the left and right sides of the used area, about half an inch. Are you trying to place your theme down the center of the screen, as is typical of most blogs with a larger left-right border? Semiologic has a cool feature in [Options > skin] to choose a narrow or wide theme view. Have no idea if that is what you are looking for, but when I first installed my semio theme, it installed wide and I could not figure out why for a day or so.

    Also, when I view your single post example, the calendar does not collapse as you describe, works perfectly.

    Again, very nice job! If I have not answered your question, I am sure Denis will be back by here Monday to clean up my mess. :)

    Hi there, thanks for your comments. Maybe I have installed it wrong but when I get into the WordPress dashboard I can't see 'Options > Skin'. All I have are:
    General - Writing - Reading - Discussion - Permalinks - Miscellaneous - PXS Mail - Recent Comments - Recent Posts - Subscribe Me - Captions - Nav Menus. Have I installed the theme correctly? I have two folders of the theme ('semiologic 2 col' and 'semiologic 3 col').
