Seeking for advise (6 posts)

    1. I search around plugin and want to find Newsletter Manager to plug into my site (www.marketingbyann.com) But the one in the plugin list still not available (under development). Is there any other suggestion and advise on this? I mean any other similar software as Newsletter Manager that compatable with WP 1.5 version?

    2. How to adjust or change the size to make my site wider? Where I have to change? Currently, my site looks so narrow, is there anyway to make it wider and nicer?

    Thank you.
    Ann

    On 2. You normally do this in the style.css in your theme. Do you have a link to your site, so we could have a look at it?

    Tip: "Seeking for advice" is what we all do. More informative topic line would be good, for example "Site too narrow".

    Well I didn't want to complain; only that the title "Seeking for advice" doesn't say anything about your problem.
    Let's leave that though.
    First I'd like to say that the width of your site looks fine to me. The width is about 780 pixels and if you want someone with a screen of 800 by 600 pixels to be able to read it, it just fits in nicely without scrolling horizontally.

    The width is set in your stylesheet by the style rule for #rap width: 780px;
    If you change this, you would want to change the width for #header too to fit in the #rap container <div id="header">
    The main container for your post has id="main" and that for the sidebar id="sidebar". As both of them have fixed width, you have to change both in the stylesheet.

    It can be tricky to have fixed widths for everything and you could relax that by letting main be resizable ( no width ). In that case You should change the the style of #sidebar from float:left; to float:right;

    Make a backup first of course 8-)

    Okey - no danger. As long as you back upp your stylesheet, you can always just copy the original back to your theme, if your tests go rampaging.
