Arranging photos in the Watercolor template

Travel Forums System Talk Arranging photos in the Watercolor template

I have been using the Postcards template almost exclusively and decided I would try Watercolor. When I am in the Preview mode, two photos that are medium size show next to each other. But when I publish, they are not side by side anymore. Can I change a parameter of the template to make the space wider so that the photos display together?

It would be quite hard with that template to achieve this I'm afraid. The reason is that the template uses an image in the background to provide the correct background colour for the center. So, although it is possible to stretch that center out a little to allow photos to sit side by side, it would mean they don't sit neatly in the light coloured part of the background.

Hope that makes sense :)

Well I sort of understand that. I guess.

Not sure if this will help or not. Suggest you firstly click the center 'thingie' and then put the links for both images within that center thing - hope I make sense. PS what's the watercolour template?

That works in the Postcard template, but does not work in the Watercolor one. Personally I would not care if the photos were not centered, but I don't know enough to fix it.

If you're looking for a change from Postcards, it is possible to widen the default template. Someone showed me how to do that when I first started here and I would be happy to send you the code I was given. But as Peter says, probably not all of them could be adapted in this way or at least, not without looking odd. I have only tried with the default and Postcards as I like them the best

I was wondering which template you used as I like the way that looks. I may go back to Postcards or try the Default, but I'll wait until I finish writing about this trip

Let me know if I can help at that point, although I’ll be away myself for the first half of July
