    I’m afraid not — if you mean creating Custom CSS. I need directed “Copy And Paste This, Silly” sort of direction!

    Ok. I am just having a look now. I could never resist a nice bit of borkage.

    Best wishes

    Love borking with you, attthe404! It’s fun to try to fix things with workarounds!

    Well this is well nigh impossible. One. We can’t edit the mark up. Two. A lot of CSS is in the index file (where else?) and Three. We can’t access the IE 7 conditional CSS also in index. A very good reason for not using hacks. Folks on the CSS upgrade need to understand that they are working with a very limited tool set for any serious editing.
    Sorry I can’t do more.

    Thanks, atthe404! I appreciate your effort and I will send in Feedback on Monday to see if this can be fixed on the server side!

    Hi Boles

    I see the same white stuff on your blog as well and on every other blog that uses Freshy.

    Freshy was one of the themes I took a liking to.. I’m gonna keep it even if it means white goo on my page. :(

    It’s monday. I would suggest sending in a feedback with an explaination on what you’re seeing, what browser and version you’re using, and a pointer to that pic as well.

    I just reported the problem to Feedback and pointed them to this thread for the discussion.

    No problem, drmike! I hope Support have time to read the whole thread because I realize there are a couple of strange things going on with Freshy that we discussed here.

    The original screenshot supplied has a thick white vertical line outside the header on the left.
    Can anyone reproduce that?
    If so, what browser?
    If not, what browser?

    We can’t see it so some help would be great

    Hi boles — I’m not able to reproduce the error you described (a white vertical line going down the right side of the page). I’m using IE7 in Windows XP. Could you take a look again and see if you’re still having the problem?

    Here’s a screenshot of what I see when I took a look at your site.

    The sites look fine (original poster and Boles) in Safari and Firefox 2 for Mac and in IE 7 for my XP install as well.

    Hiya! Yes, still having the problem. I’ll screenshot it for you on my other box next.

    I only see the vertical white pixel in IE7 under WinXP. My staff reported seeing it as well.

    Okay, here’s the screenshot of what I see — the vertical white pixel line on the right side of the image header:

    That screenshot was taken on an ThinkPad T43p running the latest version of WinXP and IE7 using SnagIt to snag it.

    Now, hold onto your pants, because this is where it gets wacky:

    In the second shot, I made the IE7 window horizontally smaller and the white pixel line disappeared!

    Try making IE7 fill your screen and see if the white pixel line appears.

    I can make the white pixel line appear and disappear by just dragging IE7 wider and skinnier.

    Wonky, say I!

    That said, I can drag all my other browser windows horizontally larger and smaller and the white pixel line never appears. I wish there were a way to charge admission for this magic trick! Heh!

    I can reproduce this in IE7, WinXP, 1028×764, and yes, it disappears when the window is narrowed.

    It also looks pretty bad in FF at any width less than 820px but I’m assuming any res below 1028×764 is unsupported anyway.

    #59844

    boles: Got it. I see what you mean, now. I’ll see what I can’t find out.

    As for how it looks at less than 1028×764; that’s unfortunate, but a limitation of the original design, so it’ll probably have to stay that way. :)
