Support » Fixing WordPress » Lining up articles and images

  • Resolved takefootball


    Not sure if anyone is able to help me, but please take a look at my blog:

    Under the ‘Premier League’ section, you will see two large images alongside each other. However, the images directly underneath (two on each side) and accompanying text do not line up. You will also note that the top row of these four articles also appears a little ‘squashed’.

    If you take a look at the next section ‘Football League’ and ‘Europe’, these line up perfectly.

    Does anyone know how I can fix this, please?

    I use MagMan 3.5.1

  • Hi takefootball,

    Currently the class “block-small” (layout.css, line 1341) has the float:right. If you change this to left, the alignment will be fixed.

    However check if there is any theme option you can make this change in your dashboard. Usually themes offer some options to manage the styles.

    Hi Ryan

    Thanks a lot for your reply.

    Please excuse my ignorance, but I’m fairly useless with this sort of thing! I’ve been looking for layout.css, but can’t find it. All I have is the following:

    404 Template
    Author Template
    Theme Functions
    Main Index Template
    Page Template
    Search Results
    Single Post
    Archives Page Template
    Contacts Page Template
    Full width Page Template

    Further to what Ryan suggested, modify this file:


    .block-small {
    	float: right;
    	overflow: hidden;
    	position: relative;
    	width: 100%;
    	border-bottom: 1px dashed #E1E1E1;
    	padding: 0 0 15px 0;
    	margin-bottom: 15px;

    Replace with:

    .block-small {
    	float: left;
    	overflow: hidden;
    	position: relative;
    	width: 100%;
    	border-bottom: 1px dashed #E1E1E1;
    	padding: 0 0 15px 0;
    	margin-bottom: 15px;

    Hi Rajesh

    Thanks for your post.

    Sorry, but I don’t understand – where do I find this file on my dashboard (admin page)?


    You can modify the file via FTP or from file manager (after you login to your hosting control panel).

    Thanks again for your quick reply.

    For some reason, the MagMan file you suggested does not appear on the FTP list, and nor does file manager.

    The guy who set the website up for me uploaded all the content onto the control panel, and it is still showing the previous theme (Vigilance).

    Is there no way I can do this via the dashboard?


    Okay, can you send a screenshot of how this folder looks in FTP / File manager?

    Sorry Rajesh, I know you’re being really helpful and I really appreciate it, but I have no idea how to do that 🙁

    I don’t know if this makes a difference, but my FTP client is File Zila…

    Hi takefootball,

    The layout.css should be in the css folder in your theme folder (MagMan).

    Hi Ryan

    That’s the problem – the blog was made for me, and all I have access to are the folders for its previous theme (vigilance), which does not have a layout.css file anyway.

    Which is why I am trying to find out if I can fix the alignment problem via my admin page (dashboard).


    Are you saying that you do NOT have access to the file manager (FTP) of your website?

    Hi Rajesh

    Sorry if I haven’t made myself clear.

    I had a Vigilance WordPress site set up for me, including having access to my FTP files through File Zila.

    Recently, I upgraded this theme to MagMan, but I do NOT have access to the FTP files for this new theme.

    Therefore, I was hoping I could resolve the alignment issue via my dashboard.

    Is that possible at all?


    Try installing this and see if you can access the active theme folder:

    Great, thanks again for your help,

    I’m at work at the moment, but will try this when I get home tonight.

    I’ll keep you posted!

    Hi Rajesh

    That worked…sort of.

    If you have a look now: the images in the left hand column underneath Premier League are lined up, but not the right hand column – any idea how to fix this?

    Also, there is no ‘gap’ separating the top two images/articles to those two directly underneath. If you take a look at the Football League and Europe sections, for example, that looks different (and correct!).

    Again, any help you can provide on this would be most appreciated.
