two questions

  • Okay. If you go to my site (http://memento–mori.org) you will see that the date is blue and the content start a line UNDERNEATH. How can I make it start right next to the date though? Im not having a < br > tag in between if you wonder…
    So. 2nd question is. When you click on ‘before’ at the bottom part and the older post appears how can I make the comments stop showing up underneath? Thats annoying 😐

  • The first part is controlled by your .CSS. Look in there for the .date declaration and for the content to have an underline. I would think that the alignment is in the .CSS as well.
    You have the pages posted for one entry. Look in your actual code for the next entry…it’s in there somewhere.

    Where do I find the actual code though? The thing is I have wordpress and everything else too in my index file (NOT in the wordpress directory), so I dont know where too look and whatnot 😀

    And I dont get the rest either 🙁 This sucks. Im dumb.

    First part. The gap between the tiltle of the post, and the contents of your post, is determined by the code in index.php. Go to Templates, and that file should appear. You need to look for the lines just underneath <div id=”rap”>
    Although there are no <br> tags, there is a tag which the WP code is putting in.
    “Damn this is annoying.” is there for example on your page.. I believe that this is coded in elsewhere in WP. I don’t know of a ‘cure’.
    Second part: When you view a previous entry on it’s own, you are effectively viewing an archive. As such, again I believe that this is the default behaviour – it certainly is how my blog behaves.

    You have got to be kidding us. Your site and previous layouts are a really cool portfolio. This is a joke right?

    don’t know if this helps- so don’t kick me if it doesnt:)
    but as to your first problem, you have your date appear before you first paragraph starts.
    <div class=”inhalt”>
    <font color=”#BEC2D5″>March 04, 2004 (Thu)</font> I’m happy with my layout, seriously. Even though there are still some little tiny bugs (which aren’t really visible to others, but it bothers me anyway <img src=’http://memento–mori.org/wordpress/wp-images/smilies/wink.gif’ alt=’;)’ />
    so maybe if you put the before the date it will all be in one chunk-
    <div class=”inhalt”>
    <font color=”#BEC2D5″>March 04, 2004 (Thu)</font> I’m happy with my layout, seriously. Even though there are still some little tiny bugs (which aren’t really visible to others, but it bothers me anyway <img src=’http://memento–mori.org/wordpress/wp-images/smilies/wink.gif’ alt=’;)’ />
    hope that helps in some way. good luck on your second problem.
    🙂

    I have to say that beautiful though your site is you have made this much harder than it need be by mixing style and content in your index. To answer your question correctly the offending paragraph is declared in a new p tag. p by default goes on a new line. Put the paragraph tag in front of the date and you will be very fine.

    Didnt work, nope. Now I created a line break 😀 *sighs*

    <font color="#BEC2D5">March 04, 2004 (Thu)</font>

    WordPress puts a tag at the start of every entry. If you want to change this behavior you will have to edit the php, which I would not recommend unless you know what you’re doing.

    I must confess to having failed to fully grasp the implications of this question.
    I think the solution requires the declaration of a new and further div for the post.
    The div needs to start before the date and end after the post. It is then possible to style the date and first line of text using display: inline. That should do it. No need to edit the php at this stage. All its tags can be styled regardless.

    Why would I put another div in there when my b2 already IS in a div? That doesnt seem to make sense.
    Well whatever. Guess I have to get used to the fact it wont work 😐

    Yes but you have now got two consecutive p tags one before the date and another before the story content. The first tag is not closed incidentally. If you have two p tags they are going to line break by default. It is in the spec. There is no mystery about how this is occurring. Getting it fixed is obviously tricky. But one of those ps has to go:-)

    Yeah I just wish I knew how to do that 🙁
    Does anyone know an answer to my first question?

    I do not wish to seem unsupportive but there is so much going on in your code
    it is confusing even our best css gurus. Perverse as this may seem once they gotten used to separate css it is very difficult to step back into the type of code
    you are asking us about. I really do mean this in the nicest way but it is apparent you have some very good design skills. Get on top of the css and you will be unstoppable.
