  • Small problem with a Wordpress Site - any insight?

    Today I launched my 3rd ever Wordpress powered site...just modified a template and customized a few small things, as well as put it all together, etc.

    For some reason, one of the plug-in widgets (NEXTGen Gallery) is causing the heading on the sidebar to inset and force some padding. I am wondering if it is a compatability issue with theme, or something else that I can't think of. It is only happening to this one item. Wondering if anyone here would have any insight into what is going on, as it's driving me crazy and while my client seems to be OK with it, I'd really like to try and fix it.

    Thought I would come to my GDF friends here first before going over to WP (where I did a search and came up empty handed)!

    Thanks in advance for taking a peek!

    Here is the site:

    And a screenshot of the problem. The mailing list sign-up heading is correct, the photos are not.

    without seeing the css there is no way to guess. it could be padding issues, maybe float, maybe margins, who knows. it could be the ghost of babe ruth playing tricks on your site....you get my point?

      YIKES!!!! I forgot to include a link to the site in my super busy state today, stupid ME!!! That's what I get for multi-tasking on GDF while working!

      Here's the site addy: Sweetloop

      For what it's worth, I did play around with many different margin, padding, and other css settings with no success - it just pretty much threw the other sidebar elements out of whack. I think it's an issue w/ theme compatibility and a fluke and will probably have to wait for the plugin developer to fix it. Just a guess though, but figured I'd see if anyone could help.

        I believe the problem lies in the width and height variables. Change those and your problem may be solved.

          yep, try this:

          Just change the size as desired – if possible.

            Val, if you're unable to do what tZ said, I was able to make the issue go away in FF using the Web Developer Toolbar's edit HTML function by adding the following inline declarations:

            <div class="hslice" id="ngg-webslice" style="padding:0; text-align:center;">

            Maybe that'll help you track down the culprit.

              I thought I had tried to change the thumbnail dimensions as that was my initial thought on what was going wrong here, but will double check it again. And if that doesn't work, I'll definitely try out your suggestion digi thanks...that makes sense...but seems strange that it would add some padding...

                Just to be clear, even though graphic design is often included in college and university art programs, graphic design is not art. Artistic creativity is certainly an important component of design, but...

                Thanx MareC.

                I will adjust to see how I can improve on it. The typography part of logo design has always been a challenge. But I will master it sooner or later
