Problem with Ocean Mist theme

  1. I recently applied to my blog the newly-made-available Ocean Mist theme, which I really like so far. The problem is that the first paragraph of each post body is cut short on the right side; in other words, the right edge of each line of the first paragraph in every post body seems to "step behind" the sidebar. All other paragraphs appear normally.

    I have confirmed the problem in both Safari 3 and Firefox 2. What could be done?

  2. flareman,
    I tried converting one of my sites to Ocean Mist and was not able to replicate the error.
    I note that you appear to have some custom CSS (your site has a different background for example).
    Have you tried taking out the custom CSS to see if that is causing the problem? Otherwise, I would suggest sending in a feedback to see if there is something odd with the way Ocean Mist is working with the Greek typeface.

  3. Best bet would be to send in a feedback from your dashboard and give staff details on the issue. Please include your screen resolution and, if you can, a link to a screen capture showing the issue.

  4. @ozrisk: I am not using any custom CSS (since I am a non-paying user) - the only thing I have customized on the blog is the header image, which I cropped to specifications and which, when removed, does not rectify the problems.

    @drmike: I have contacted support - twice - on this subject, and the reply was that I am using Safari 3, which, as beta version software is not supported. I replied that the problem persists in FF2, Camino, Opera and IE in all systems, thus is not a problem on my side; nothing yet. I am seriously considering changing the theme again, since the support does not seem to care:( My resolution is 1440x900, standard for all 17 inch iMacs - as for a screenshot, I have uploaded one here depicting the problem.

    Any ideas?

  6. I don't see this occurring when i look at your site using FF 2.0.0.6 on Mac OS X 10.4.10. Everything looks fine to me.

  7. Looks OK to me in FF 2 under Vista. Monitor (laptop) is 1280x800. So my guess is it's your monitor's resolution.

    Do other blogs with the same theme show the same behavior?

  8. I see it on FF2.0.6 and Safari 2.0.4 if I look further down on the main page, and click on some of the other links. Apple 23" Cinema Display at 1920 x 1200. Does the same thing on my laptop screen with FF and Safari as well. Weird that it's only the first paragraph. Are you writing your posts using the dashboard, or a desktop client of some sort?

  10. You need to ask in the Spanish forum if you want Spanish answers. And you need to be specific about what the problem is.
