[resolved] Full Text to Excerpts, Footer Problems, and Header Placement (3 posts)

    I love this theme! It's everything I needed for my new blog. However, I am having a few problems and, after a couple days of trying to fix them myself, I'm really frustrated. (FYI, my blog is here.)

    1. How do I get the posts on my main page to show up as excerpts instead of full text? I've noticed a few people having the opposite problem, which is really weird....

    2. My posts are extending down into the footer. They're ONLY doing this when I click on an individual post. It's not a problem on the main page. How do I fix this?

    3. I want the header image to move to the left, but I can't seem to remove the text (which is currently transparent) without screwing everything up. Any ideas? (This one is low priority, but would still be great to fix.)

    Thank you!

    Actually, it turns out the footer problem IS happening on my main page. I just didn't have enough posts to see it.

    FYI, I was able to fix two of my problems.

    How to get entries to show up as excerpts:
    Include a featured image. That's it.

    Entries overflowing into footer:
    I changed this:

    /* LAYOUT
    ----------------------------------------------- */
    .container {
    	width: 980px;
    .content-area {
    	width: -100%;
    	float: right;
    .site-content {
    	width: 625px;
            margin: 0 0 -340px 0;

    I changed the -340 in the margin to 0. I'm not sure why it was set to -340 in the first place (probably something I did while I was moving the sidebar to the left), but changing that fixed it.

    Just thought I should put this here, in case anyone else has issues with it in the future. :)

    I'm going to mark this as resolved, since I'm attempting to do something different with the header. Of course, I'm having issues with that, as well, so I'll probably be asking about it. :P
