Support » Themes and Templates » Text spacing problem

  • Hi all,
    New fish here so be gentle!
    Been up and running for a few days and am so chuffed that I made the move from Blogger.
    I’ve altered the original template and got it more or less exactly as I want it, however, I can’t seem to alter the text spacing within the main post’s text. I think that the original text spacing seems crazy close to me, it makes words with c and l (cl) look like a ‘d’.
    Here it is…
    body {
    background: #135;
    border: none;
    border-bottom: none;
    border-top: none;
    color: #fff;
    font-family: Tahoma,Trebuchet,Verdana,Sans-Serif;
    letter-spacing: .1em;
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    If I alter the colour of the body’s code the text’s colour changes, however, when I alter the letter spacing in the same part of code it only effects the post’s heading!
    What am I doing wrong…please someone put me out of my misery! Am I editing the wrong part?
    Also, I can’t work out how to change the link category order. At the moment they are in alphabetical but I want them in an arbitrary order…any way to do that please.
    Cheers gang…nice to be on-board, maybe I’ll be able to help someone here one day!

  • well you still have
    letter-spacing: -1px;
    applied to the ‘p’ selector. that overrides what you’ve done to ‘body’ (that’s why it’s called *cascading* style sheet).
    link cat order – if nothing in the control panel does what you want the easiest hack is to prefix a space to whatever you want to appear first.
    hehe beatallica, love ’em!

    Well, I thought I understood and gave it a go with tags in different places with no joy 🙁
    Could I trouble you to show what to place and more importantly WHERE to place it please in reference to the original code?
    body {
    background: #135;
    border: none;
    border-bottom: none;
    border-top: none;
    color: #fff;
    font-family: Tahoma,Trebuchet,Verdana,Sans-Serif;
    letter-spacing: .1em;
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    Thanks so much.

    It’s here:
    p, li, .feedback {
    font: 90%/175% ‘Lucida Grande’, ‘Lucida Sans Unicode’, Verdana, sans-serif;
    letter-spacing: -.5px;
    }
    (Ignore the .5 – I’m playing with it in Firefox)

    Cheers for the advice both of you, Eric, I’ll be looking at that link in due course, nice one and Podz, cheers for the exact location, it had driven my nuts trying to find it.
    It’s now more or less just right 🙂
    Thanks again.
