Sidebar on the Side - no header

Sidebar on Top no header image

Additional Layout Directions: Adding A Header image

  1. Currently this layout is not set up for a Header Image. However you can add on by putting the link in the .headerimage section. You should change the height in that section to the same height as your image. This will make your header overly your journal. Follow the directions below to change that...

  2. First find the .maincontent coding. Currently it has a padding of 45px on top. If you image is 300px in height then you will want to add 300px to this 45px padding for a total of 345px. If you image is a height of 250px then your total top padding would be 295px and so on.

  3. Then find your .sidebar coding. In this you will see the margin-top is set to the same 45px. The same idea applies. If you image is 300px in height add 300px to 45px for 345px.

I totally love this, especially the sidebar on the top! <3 However, I am having some trouble with the "blurb/free text" part of the sidebar. Somehow it's "array". The "title" will appear left next to the actual box (instead of at the top) and the text box is also not the same as the ones for e.g. "tags" box and such. It doesn't have a background colour either, but that's something I can live with. But it looks a bit weird altogether. Do you have any idea why that is? You can look at it here: http://author-paradise.livejournal.com/46718.html
I know, it's a different theme that I used, but I checked and the phenomenon is the same with the original theme. I would appreciate your help very much, because I really, really like this solution and I want to use it, but I'm just not happy with it as is. D:

I will look in on this soon. My mom has been in the hospital and Real Life is crazy right now.

No rush here. I hope your mom is recovering well. And RL can be so busy, I know. I've made some further adaptions to make it look a bit smoother, but maybe you'll find a way to make it work even better.

The Blurb's title is the only one that does this and I've never figured out why. It is really frustrating. For all the other issues... I've figured it all out. What I would recommend is putting the title in your Free Text section and coding for it.

So in the Blurb section I added.

Then in the coding I did this:

h15 {
display: block;
width: 100%;
background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.5);
list-style: none;
background-image: none;
color: #aaaaaa;
text-align: left;
letter-spacing: 2px;
font-family: "Abel", trebuchet ms, arial, sans-serif;
font-size: 14px;
text-transform: uppercase;
margin: 5px -12px 0px 8px;

Now it matches the others.

Go to workshop_rees to see the outcome and get the new coding for your layout which fixes things.(with the above coding added).
