I need help with the menu bar and reader urls!

Postby atomicbomb23 » January 6th, 2018, 9:45 pm

Hello! I have some slight minor coding problems I'd like some help with.

How do I make the menu bar short looking like this on my homepage/overall layout?

This is how I want my menu bar to look all the time basically:
http://lifessweettreat.smackjeeves.com/characters/

Short and centered. (the way it looks now on pages, except the character page/about , is it looks way too stretched out.)

For the reader urls-

http://lifessweettreat.smackjeeves.com/ ... 3/morning/

If you scroll to the bottom of the page and look at the comments you'll notice the readers url/profile link on their comment blends in with my background. I was wondering if there was a way to change the color of the readers profile link?

Thank you for reading! :)

The gigantic navigation arrows are what's causing the page to stretch.

This CSS override should limit the width of the arrow container without breaking the arrows too much, though you may need to play with the exact number:
Code: Select all
.comic-nav {
   width: 960px;
}


I recommend using smaller arrows in any case, though.


Instead of just changing the link colour, I recommend adding a solid background for the entire comment, as the text is very difficult to read. To do that:
Code: Select all
.comments-wrapper {
   background-color: #fff;
}

(you may want to use a pale pinkish colour instead of white, so that the reader comments are more visually distinct from the author comments.)
