  • Hi,

    I’m trying to put in my own images into the Kubrick template for WordPress 1.5, but they are a little bigger than the ones that come with the template. So, I’ve been trying to move stuff around, and so far I’ve been moderatly successfull. But one huge problem I can’t figure out is, how to move the right cloumn over to the right more. If you take a look at it ( you will see the problem. I’ve been trying to fiddle with things and values in the CSS, but I can’t get anything right. And this is my first time with CSS.

    Also, at the top, the banner seems to be a bit under the bg. So one can see the lines of the bg image above the banner. Any thoughts? A simular thing with the footer, but this time it is off to the right a bit and the lines look funny.

    Thanks for your help!

  • The right column is controlled by the styles found in the style.css sheet and they are specifically

    <div class="navigation">
    <div id="sidebar">

    So look in your style.css in the template folder you are using in wp-content/themes/ and open the style.css file. Search for “.navigation” and “#sidebar” and change the margins and/or padding to something that fits what you need.

    That help? Do the same with the footer.

    I checked your CSS and you may want to start making your changes here:

    { padding: 20px 0 10px 0;
    margin-left: 545px;
    width: 190px;

    Ace m8! Now, the banner. Where is it’s properties located? I know it is the header (or at least I think it is) but the banner still seems to be off place, even though it is the same width as everything eles! >:(

    It seems to be placed up a bit, and to the left. Also, the blog doesn’t seem to recognize it. Like, it will display it, but it will still show the text of the name of the blog, and the discription. But if it is showing, why is the text showing too?

    Thanks again!

    I assume you mean the header not the banner. They are found in the header. Do your fixes there.

    If the header.php includes places for your name of blog and description, it will show up there. It looks like this:

    <?php the_title(); ?>

    For the title, or something like this. Next to that would be the ID or class that will link you to the style sheet. No different from what you fixed already. It looks great, though in your little logo, I can’t read it. It says “uniting something and computers” but I’m only guessing. Very hard to read.

    It it bigger, it is just that the alignment is off and it seems to be squized.

    Also, I ment the banner. The header and the banner are the same.

    So if I remove the <?php the_title() ; ?> the the title will not show up and the banner will only display?

    Never mind, I figured it out. Thanks for your help Lorelle!

    Ok, I’ve run into more problems.

    1. When someone clicks the links on the main page to take them to the intire article, where you can read everything, and the comments, my template is all messed up. Here is an example:

    2. When I am writing something, is there any way to get the <!– next page –> to show up on the article on the front page, instead of ONLY when they click the link to view it?

    3. How do I create a orizontal line in my posts? I tried <hr> but that doesn’t work. Is there a way?

    4. I don’t have a navigation bar. Is there a way I can add one in under my banner? Like I just put in some links, and a gradient or solid color behind it? Kinda like on my main page (

    5. Where can I get the calenders, Weather thing, Recent Posts? In my Plugins it says I have Weather Icon (1.1.2) and it is active, but then what? it isn’t showing up on my blog.

    6. How do I add who the article was posted by? and the images next to them? Like some sites have little arrows or something next to “Posted in…” “By..” and “Comments ()”

    7. Is there anyway I can move my blog. I hope to move it so that it is my main page and not in another folder. If I do move it, will all my articles be lost?
