Help? Problems revising theme. (4 posts)

    I've been working all day customizing a theme to fit my ideas. I've got almost all of the images done, but I'm doing some finetuning. If someone is good at this, I would LOVE some help though on some of my issues:

    1. I have a calendar showing on the sidebar. I'd like to make it center justified instead of left justified, but can't figure out how to change it.

    2. I can't figure out how to modify my links section on the sidebar the way I want it. I want a space between each link, no indentation, and ideally the name of the link and then the description on the next <br>.

    Does anyone have experience with this that would be willing to help out a newbie idiot? I would really appreciate any help I could get!!!

    Add this to your stylesheet:
    #wp-calendar, #wp-calendar caption {margin-left: 30px;}

    Centers it up quite well. Be sure to test it cross-browser, though. I can only test it in Firefox with the webdeveloper extension.
    You can adjust the 30px a little either way to get it exactly where you're wanting it.

    Hope this helps.

    On IE, it moves everything else over 30 pixels too, unfortunately. It moves the links and recent posts over, as well as the post titles. :-(

    heh.. of course.. good ol' IE..

    here's a couple of other possible solutions:
    put <center> ... </center> tags around the whole table and see if that might center it up for you.

    And since the calendar is located in an unordered list <ul>
    you could try to put the table in a line item and see what happened then. <li> .... table </li>. That would probably scoot it over a little without affecting everything else. But then again, there might be some other style defined for line items in your sidebar that could affect the calendar's look. I haven't looked very closely at your stylesheet.
