[resolved] Flex theme and how comments are displayed (4 posts)

    Hi everyone,

    I've been playing with the Flex theme but there's one aspect I can't seem to change no matter what I do - it's the way comments are displayed.

    When you start a new paragraph it just displays it on the next line and I can't figure out what in the code is making it do that.

    Any suggestions gratefully received!

    #commentlist li p{
    padding: 0px;
    margin: 0px 0px 0px 0px; <-----------------

    Your paragraphs in your comments have no margins.

    Change that to something like this:
    margin: 10px 0px 10px 0px;

    I had to hunt to find what you are talking about: http://www.josalmon.co.uk/2005/07/unite-against-terror/

    So what is happening is that there is no "space" between the paragraphs in the comments.

    Let's start with the fact that I tried three times to validate your page and couldn't. FIX THAT.

    Once that is fixed, go into your style.css file for your Theme and add something like this:

    .commenttext p {margin:5px 0px; }

    Or use padding or whatever to add space to the top and bottom of the paragraph. Change the number to your specifications. The first number sets the top AND bottom and the second the LEFT and RIGHT.

    Later: It looks like the problem may be 1) your Theme header is bad or has errors, or 2) your host is denying access in some way. Get this error fixed. It could lead to bigger problems down the way.

    Cheers techwench - wish I'd known it was that easy!

    Lorelle, chill out and lay off the caps... I'll see if I can figure out why it's not validating but there really is no reason to shout.
