technical question

Thank you so much to Matt (Star in a Jar) who told me how to import my old blog. So now you can view my old posts here. Hooray!

Now for more technical advice. It's incredibly straightforward (one would have thought so anyway!).

It may not seem like a big deal to you, but here goes...

In my last blog, I had a lovely double-spaced thing going on. Or maybe it was 1 1/2 spacing. Either way, it was much nicer than this squashed thing we've got over here. It seems crowded! Is is just me or is it crowded in here?

How can I get the spaced out lines back?

+Edited 3rd March. He fixed it! Star in a Jar fixed it! Hooray! Thank you so much!


  1. well aren't i slow.
    my blog reader didn't update me with your last moving home notice.
    but i am caught up now!

    oh, and i have no idea what you are talking about.
    space where? inbetween the lines you are typing?
    its late. i am a confused being.

  2. Actually...
    if you click on 'layout', 'edit html'
    and scroll down until you see something like:

    .post-body {
    margin:0 0 .75em;

    and change the 1.6em bit it should work for you.
    Just remember to make a backup of the template first :)

  3. on second inspection:
    yours says:

    .post p {
    margin:0 0 .75em;

    and not 'post-body'... i think that should work... :)

  4. Hooray! Star in a Jar to the rescue!

    However, I did as you said but nothing has changed :o( I'll keep trying and I might get back to you.

    Rhi: 2.40am?! No wonder you were confused! Yes, it's the lines between were I'm typing - having double spacing makes it easier to read. And I like the look of it :o)

  5. if you are struggling. send me an invite to be a blog author and I'll edit the html for you.

  6. .post {
    margin:.5em 0 1.5em;
    border-bottom:1px dotted $bordercolor;

    There you go...
    I've added a line-height option to your .post style, tweak as desired.

  7. WOOOHOOOO! Thank you so much!

    You are a STAR! ... in a JAR!
