    For some reason, there is an overlap on the text of my post onto the comments section.

    How do I fix this issue?

    my blog is: http://www.theohwow.com
    an example of what I am having trouble with: http://www.theohwow.com/?p=33#more-33

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    The height: 500px; being applied to the div containing your post information is what's causing the issue. The div is being constrained to be no more than 500px tall, and any text that extends beyond that 500px is overflowing out of the container (and overlapping the container below).

    thanks for your help. I am new at this, so I apologize if this is a silly question....but how do I change the div to be unlimited?

    Remove the height:500px; portion from the div. That will cause the height to be set to "auto", which means it will expand to fit the contents. If you want to make sure that the div is at least 500px tall, you could replace height:500px; with min-height:500px;, which means it will be at least 500px tall, but will expand beyond that if necessary.

    I'm assuming that means you got it working? Glad I could help.
