Expanding Adventurer Width Template

Travel Forums System Talk Expanding Adventurer Width Template

1. Posted by TLWH (Travel Guru 516 posts) 8y

Hi Folks,

Did a quick search but nothing came up on this.

Is it possible to increase the width of the Adventurer Template, so one could have the text displayed the same as in say the Postcard template.

I see in the template previews Adventurer is allowing lots of space, but in my blog I am limited (i think). In other words there seems to be a lot of empty space to the right, and too the left???

Thanks

OC

Yes, you can edit any design, but be warned they might not always turn out exactly as you expect them. The adventurer design is actually pretty intricate, so making one change without doubt will lead to other design issues (it won't affect the content, but things might start looking strange).

Anyway, to make this change, go into the Edit Template area and find the line:


  1. center{width:897px;}

Increase the width there with say 100 px to width:997px

Two lines below it you will see a line starting with #blogcontent and which also includes a width of 450px. Change the width of this one to 550px and it will widen the text space.

Naturally if you don't find that wide enough, you could make them both 150 or 200px wider for example.

Save and see how it looks :)

Thats great, thanks, tried it and it worked. Just wanted it a little wider as there was too much black space for me, and not enough space for text.

It's a very nice template, so nice actually that a friend of mine made me a tshirt as a surprise from it, hope that didn't infringe anyones copyright to much!! Just one tshirt for me!!

Anyway, someone else asked me why such few templates on travellerspoint compared to other blog sites?? Anything on the horizon there?

I forgot one other thing, how do I have all the text displayed center justified?

Thanks for the code and reply

You should be okay :)

Yes, there is actually something on the horizon, but probably only one new professional one in the short term. Perhaps we should have a competition asking users to submit their blog designs and the best ones get a prize?! I've thought of this before, but not sure how much interest there would be for this. We might not have a lot of templates compared to say blogger or wordpress, which are aimed at general blogging, but we're the only travel blogging system that even provides more than 1 template (most others just host it on their site with all their branding around it).

Within the #blogcontent line, add in text-align:center;. That should do the trick I think!

Thanks, but my bad I meant just Justify as in with no jagged edges of text on either the left or right side. I tried changing the script to text-align:justify and it worked out fine.

Not sure if there if you have already done this, but it might be of use to compile all the most Frequently Asked Code questions you answer here into one page? I have started saving my questions into the diary of the blog. But having it all on one TP page might be nice

Thanks again

Nice find. I'm not sure it will work in all browsers but it should work in the good ones!

Not a bad idea. Might be something we need to add to the wiki travel guide to supplement the Blog FAQ's! Of course we'll never be the best resource for code related questions but we could add a few links to other sites that really go into depth on CSS code that is used for the Travellerspoint blog designs.
