Timestamp Location

  • Dec. 23rd, 2009 at 1:47 PM
Greetings all,

I'm a new user of Expressive and I'm a bit stumped by existence of two .asset-meta containers. I would love to combine .datetime and .asset-meta-comments a single container, so that the timestamp displays at the bottom of the entry with the comment links like this:

Dec. 23rd, 2009 at 12:34 PM - 6 comments - leave a comment - etc.

Thanks in advance for any guidance.

Another tweak that I'm hoping to make (but realize might not be possible without a custom layer) would be to group entries by date. This is the one thing I miss from my old Bloggish layout, as it eliminates redundant information. Thus entries made on the same day display as:

Date Heading: December 22, 2009
-Entry #1 (with time-only timestamp)
-Entry #2
-Entry #3
December 23, 2009
-Entry #1
-Entry #2

Any hope of doing this for a lowly free user like me?

I agree that having two asset-meta containers isn't good "semantic" HTML. Unfortunately, 1. there's not much hope of getting this changed, because the stylesheets are already intended for this markup, and 2. you won't be able to make any of the changes you want without a custom theme layer and, in turn, a Paid account.

Thanks for the reply! Sad to hear that neither tweak is possible, but in the end not particularly surprised.

However, I think it should be possible to align the timestamp to the right side of the screen, no? I've tried every sort of float/text-align combination I can think of and can't make it work. Got any tips to cure my frustration?

Sorry, but I haven't been able to find a way to do this either, at least not without modifying the HTML with a theme layer. The problem is a float: left in the CSS that's also affecting the meta links at the bottom of the entry, because they're both in .asset-meta containers.

Ah, that's what I was missing! I decided that the easiest solution to this conundrum would be to simply let both timestamp and the comment links float right, and just forget about all the rest. Thanks so much for your help!
