Hi there...

I fully admit to being not so knowledgeable with css, but I have an issue that I'm not sure how to fix and I wouldn't be able to see it if I fixed it at all anyway. *LOL*

The gap between my sidebar and entries looks fine on my monitor (because I have a 15-inch).



However, apparently people with larger monitors see a larger gap.



Any ideas on how to fix this problem would be greatly appreciated! :)

eta:

I changed the alpha and beta to 80/20...which helped tremendously. The only issue is that the line above the calendar is a little shorter and the calendar is a little to the left of everything else.



If anyone knows how to fix this, I'll gladly listen...but, I can live with it. :)

Thank you!

Probably because you've got the container set at a percentage (85%) but your alpha and beta are set to pixel values. Try setting your container to a fixed width.

Edited to add: Or you could change your alpha and beta to percentages, as well. Like 80/20 or 70/30... something like that.

Thank you. I changed it to 70/30, but I have no idea what it looks like. *LOL*

Ah the joys of having an old, smaller monitor.

Thanks so much for your help!

hm...

Apparently, according to my friend who has a 19" monitor, when I changed it to 70/30, it looked like this:



It pretty much just extended the lines out into the large gap between the sidebar and the entries.

It looks just fine on my monitor...but, most people don't have 15" monitors these days, I guess... :(

Take out the "width: 180px;" from .calendar-widget {}, which will fix the top border of the calendar module.

Thank you!

One of these days I'm going to learn more about css...at least that's what I keep telling myself. :)

You might try text-align:center; on the calendar-widget table. That will probably center it. Otherwise, your journal looks fine on my monitor, and I have a wide-screen.
