My sidebar is on the right hand side, and I also use a footer.
With removing the "old" ability to edit the CSS and only having the "customize" flyout way... I'm not seeing any preview, let alone live, because there aren't any scroll bars for the blog portion, only scrollbars for the flyout/customize modules.
Yes, the flyout will fly back, and then I have to go and find my changes, and then try to remember exactly what I did, and undo it, because... prior revisions no longer exist. Then make the changes again, and again, and...
This is causing more work than it did before (not to mention making me dizzy with all the flyout and back) because I need to make notes on paper of every change I've made.
The lack of prior revisions is really troubling - I am so far from any kind of CSS expert, and being able to rely on those prior revisions has saved me from nightmares (and saved this forum from scores of frantic "Help!" posts) and given me the courage to play with the CSS. Through that "play" I've learned a lot... I wouldn't dare do it now.
I am really not liking this, at all. And it's not a matter of not liking change... I'm not liking the removal of functionality that existed before, and not liking the extra work because of it.
CSS editing can be a challenge to begin with - making it more difficult will only serve to make this forum busier.
The blog I need help with is sensuousinkspiller.com.
