A kind of homecoming…

I’ve been prevented from Blogging because of a bug in the template code… I thought!

I have pulled my hair out over this, only to find that the problem is not in the template, it’s in the Blogger software!

Remind me of something. Why is it we use Blogger software for… well, blogging, when previously, we just coded up some pages and then FTPd them up to our respective sites? Archives created and included, of course.

This whole hosed code issue is actually based around the fact that I used italics… Correct, that and nothing else.

If you have a similar problem with the sidebar disappearing because you use italics then you could just not use them. However, for anyone suffering the same problem, here’s the fix:

Go to the Template editing page when logged into Blogger, and within the text editing area on the page (click inside it once), run a “Find” command from your browser for “post-body” (no quotes). That should show you the following CSS code:

.post-body div {font-size: 13px;line-height: 18px;margin: 10px, 0px;}

Change that to the following:

.post-body div {font-size: 13px;line-height: 18px;margin: 0;height: 1%;overflow:visible;}

Then, go back to the bathroom with some glue and pick out the hair you pulled out of your head and stick it back on again.
