Image size issue

  1. Hi,

    I´m having some problems with my blog and can´t seem to find a solution so I figured I´d try here.

    I have a comic blog (it´s in finnish, sorry :) ), and it would be ideal to have my pictures in their original size already at the front page. Now my readers have to click on the images to see them in their full size. I´ve been browsing through the themes but couldn´t really find one that had settings for this, or else I just couldn´t figure it out.
    I´ve been using Kubrick as a theme.

    Now I finally purchased the custom CSS, but I´m not sure what to do next. I guess I could ask around for someone familiar with CSS, but if there is some simple solution for my problem found here I would be most grateful.
    I also hope that the solution would apply on all the published images on the blog, since there are over 500 of them already.

    Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is fokit.wordpress.com.

  4. Kubrick is a difficult theme to work with in CSS, because you first have to create a new background image for the content/sidebar area and the CSS in it is quite strange to work with in some respects.

    Since your comics are 1000px wide I would suggest going with a theme that has either no sidebar or the option to not have a sidebar. Over 40% of people are still on 1024px wide monitor resolutions so a 1000px wide image and a 200px wide sidebar means the would have to scroll horizontally to see the sidebar and horizontal scrolling is not something people like to have to do.

    It would be much easier to start with a wider theme that has a "one-column" option with a footer widget area such as coraline and then modify that through the CSS for the look you want.

  5. Thank you very much for your answer.
    Maybe I´ll try out coraline and get some help with the CSS part. I have a good feeling that things will work out just fine. It´s just been a bit frustrating trying to figure these things out.

  6. And oops, sorry about the confusion! I wrote a reply while logged in on a different username.

  7. You're welcome and not a problem.
