    I pretty much have my custom css done with the theme Misty. I would like (if possible) to put a little comment balloon to the left of where it shows if you have any comments in the post meta area. If anyone could help I’d appreciate it.

    I can’t help with your comment balloon question.

    I just wanted to say that I also use the Misty Look theme and I like the way you expanded it. If it had two sidebars on the right hand side I’d go for it. :)

    thanks timethief, I did notice your blog yesterday and found it helpful. I love the misty theme, but I think on down the line I’ll have to change to something that has a sidebar on each side, just because I have tons of info on my sidebars and I still have information to add, and I don’t like the drop down menus for categories and such.

    I’m using Misty too and have just bought the upgrade. I looked at both your blogs and wonder:

    timethief…I like the button at the bottom of your posts from addthis, but from reading their site it seems to be a plugin? Are you still on the free WP?

    crysacraig…your blog’s wonderful. How on earth did you do the solid line and book logo between posts?

    TIA…back to reading tutorials.

    I’m back. I added an addthis button to my sidebar and just found your thread, timethief, about the addition to posts. I was really hoping it was automatic. If we could only use Java then FeedFlare could do it. <sigh>

    @ellaella about the book divider. I made it myself. There was already a divider graphic in the template, all it was was a dotted line, I just made a solid line and used a book graphic I had kicking around. I just used Paint Shop.

    Thanks, crysacraig. You did a super job. I have so much to learn about CSS. Bit by bit.

    Web design. html, css is alot of trial and error. You just play around till you get it right.

    What a coincidence, this is exactly what I wanted too (at least that’s what i think I understood “comment/balloon graphic” to mean. I clicked on timethief’s blog and saw the oversized graphic ” and do not know how to incorporate it in my Misty Themed photography blog.

    @shimworld..timethief doesn’t have any comment graphic. She has the Misty template too. I think maybe you mean the quote graphic to represent blockquotes??

    Yes, that one. How is that done?

    Just realised what I’m after is called a Blockquote and it’s just a matter of clicking on the Indent/Blockquote button.

    unfortunately, the comment link doesn’t have a class of its own. you can just put the image at the right of the post meta:

    #content .postmetadata {
    #F2F0F4 url(http://sunburntkamel.files.wordpress.com/2007/03/comment.png) no-repeat scroll right
    }
