I've been browsing this community for a couple hours now while I try to figure out various things. It has been a big help.

However, there is one thing that is stumping me. I can't seem to enlarge #content or #alpha no matter what I do.

This post taught me how to successfully build a new theme layer that should have done the trick, but it wouldn't allow me to choose a 3 column page setup - the only option available was the one column. Unless there is some way to change this within the CSS that I am missing.

I would love to be able to have the #beta #alpha #gamma setup with a flexible #alpha column.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

#gamma position:absolute right side (perfect)

#beta no alterations

#alpha position:relative (setting to absolute hides #beta column)
#alpha width: ??? no value changes the appearance

.asset, .asset-content width can be set to a px value that exceeds #alpha, %value will not exceed #alpha (obviously does not yield flexible width)

Other Issues:
right aligning meta-comments and not date
show lj-currents even if no data present

I never really tried to figure out what that tutorial accomplished. Changing the order of the columns only screws up the existing stylesheets, and the flexible width should be achievable with straight CSS. That being said, I think I know how to do it, but I won't have time to work something up until much later today. =(

Time isn't a big deal at the moment. I've currently got the asset width specified for my monitor, just so i can get an idea of how it might look if i get it figured out.

I'm fixing to take a nap because I've been up all night working on the layout.

I'm close to being ready to giving up. I've tried everything i can think of and then some. And i've still got other issues to work out. (i'm hoping i can figure something out that will save me from having to recode comment forms and such)
