Would Like to Split a Block of Text (4 posts)

    My site is http://selfparenting.com/blog/

    I'm trying to get the second "block" of text to sit up next to the first. I thought this was a div function. Does it need a float, or???

    Thanks for assistance,

    John

    <div id="content">

    <div>
    <h2>Learn to Become your OWN Loving Inner Parent</h2>
    Many of us grew up within a parental environment that did not fully supply our childhood needs for love, support, and nurturing. As adults we typically continue these same patterns as an “Inner Parent” which leaves us feeling alone and abandoned as a child.

    By beginning the daily practice of positive Self-Parenting, the negative outer parenting patterns you were taught as a child (and subsequently internalized as an adult) can be recognized and reversed.

    <h2>Learn To Love, Support, & Nurture Your Inner Child …Using The SELF-PARENTING® Program.</h2>
    The mission of this SELF-PARENTING Program Website is to guide YOU in the practice of daily, half-hour sessions of Self-Parenting, as described by Dr. John Pollard in his book, SELF-PARENTING: The Complete Guide To Your Inner Conversations.

    The SPP provides a proven pathway for healing your Inner Child success defined as a deeper and more conscious awareness of the interaction between your Inner Parent and Inner Child. What we call your SELF-PARENTING STYLE.

    You can use this plugin WP Post Columns to post in columns like I done on home page.

    at the moment, your divs are nested, i.e. the second one sits inside the first one.

    try a structure like this:

    <div id="content2">
    
    <div>
    <h2>Learn to Become your OWN Loving Inner Parent</h2>
    blurp 1
    </div>
    
    <div>
    <h2>Learn To Love, Support, & Nurture Your Inner Child …Using The SELF-PARENTING® Program.</h2>
    blurp 2
    </div>
    
    </div>

    btw: #content (id="content") is already used in the theme, so may not be used again - try to use #content2

    and something in the style.css:
    #content2 div { width: 48%; float:left; margin-right: 2%; }

    Thanks above for the ideas.

    I also got put 2 cells, which would have done it long ago, and then this code, from Eric Martin.

    .home .entry-content div#content, .home .entry-content div {
    width: 49%;
    float: left;
    margin-right: 7px;
    }

    this reads similar to what alchymyth suggested I believe. I haven't gotten my head around the CSS langage yet.

    Thanks for the help,

    John
