  • Resolved movingzachb


    I am cut/pasting text from the web to notepad or word pad first in rich text format then cutting it and pasting it into a post. When I do this it throws the text over to the right way too far. I can’t change anything when I view html mode. There is simply no code to move. Here is the text posted that is moved too far over. It is a simple list that will not stay left. Can anyone help me with this?

    Can you post what you are putting in the post box? If it’s not too long – if so, use and post link back here.

    What you’re cutting and pasting makes no real difference. Your CSS is wrong. Look at this line:
    .post.single .entry { float:right; line-height:18px;overflow:hidden;padding-bottom:25px; }

    See that “float:right”? It’s making your text float to the right side there. Remove that float bit from your style.css file.

    I removed it – it didn’t make a difference after posting a new copy.

    the text still floats right too far over
    from this link

    If I manually type in text – it stays left by default. Cut/Paste is being rude.

    I don’t see what you are talking about, that looks fine:

    Hit F5 or refresh or clear your browser cache.

    the count needs to be flush left its in the middle of the post area..

    – needs to be in line with the “no” in No comments // Oct 1st, 2008 // Latest News

    crap F5 worked ok i see it thanks – so FREAKING GLAD that’s fixed. Now all the rest of my posts look right.
