Title - styled text


(Ashwini Bhat) #1

Hi, I just built my site using RW.
Am mostly using styled text pages.
It all looks great on my Mac Air
After I published the site one my friends who uses a PC sent me a screen shot where the titles look staggered. I tried with two other friends who use Mac and they didnt see the same problem. So I thought may be it was a Mac Vs PC problem! I shortened the title a bit.
But later in the day one more friend who uses a Ma sent me a screen shot where the problem still persists with one more title.
I dont want to shorten the titles of my artwork, am proud of the titles…
How do I solve this problem, I am not even sure where to begin to look for solutions?!
Thanks
Am attaching screen shot showing the blurry text

Ash,

By ‘Titles’, do you mean ‘Unknot Series’, ‘Caracole…’ etc?

If so, they’re built with an Unordered List, one of whose default properties is indentation.

Does that help?

Thanks Mark, yes thats what I mean.
For example the title “One over two Two over one” looks ok on my mac but not some other computers…
I will look into the unordered list, its a bit Greek and Latin to me, but thank you for pointing me at the right direction…

But when I tried the Indent it still doesnt work
and the code i use for indent shows on the title :disappointed_relieved:

Ash,

Just to be 100% clear, please: is the fault you want to fix the fact that everything under ‘Gallery’, namely:

Unknot Series
Caracole Series
Into the Mouth of Volcanoes
Cat’s Cradle
Rings of Saturn
Realm of the Hungry Ghosts
One over two Two over one
LoveSeat
Cambrian Explosion
Queen
Workshots

is indented (further to the right) than:

Home
In situ
Gallery
… … …
About
Artist’ statement
Critical Responses
Contact

?

If so, that’s because the list that contains:

Unknot Series
Caracole Series
Into the Mouth of Volcanoes
Cat’s Cradle
Rings of Saturn
Realm of the Hungry Ghosts
One over two Two over one
LoveSeat
Cambrian Explosion
Queen
Workshots

is itself a ‘sublist’, if you like; and so will be indented to distinguish it from the ‘parent’ list.

It’s coded like this:

<ul>
	<li><a href="../styled/photos/" rel="">Unknot Series</a></li>
	<li><a href="../styled/photos-16/" rel="">Caracole Series</a></li>
	<li><a href="../styled/photos-2/" rel="">Into the Mouth of Volcanoes</a></li>
	<li><a href="../styled/photos-4/" rel="">Cat's Cradle</a></li>
	<li><a href="../styled/photos-6/" rel="">Rings of Saturn</a></li>
	<li><a href="../styled/photos-9/" rel="">Realm of the Hungry Ghosts</a></li>
	<li><a href="../styled/photos-7/" rel="">One over two Two over one</a></li>
	<li><a href="../styled/photos-8/" rel="">LoveSeat</a></li>
	<li><a href="../styled/photos-5/" rel="">Cambrian Explosion</a></li>
	<li><a href="../styled/photos-3/" rel="">Queen</a></li>
	<li><a href="../styled/photos-11/" rel="">Workshots</a></li>
</ul>

You ought to be able to use custom CSS to set each list item’s properties not to indent. Or did you not code it as a list in RW? What happens when you use a different RW Theme?

Dear Mark
Thanks so much trying to figure this out
Am trying to fix just three titles under Gallery-
Into the Mouth of Volcanoes
Realm of the Hungry Ghosts
One over two Two over one

I did not use any code at all.
I created each page (home/in situ/gallery/about etc etc) in “styled text” format
And under In Situ and Gallery I created sub sections showing each body of work.

The problem is I dont see the problem- neither when I hit preview/ nor when I open it in chrome or safari- the length of the three titles are fine on my screen- on this theme am using (Simple) and two other themes I tried.
The problem is these 3 titles are looking “wrong” for few of my friends , most of them suing PC but one of them using a mac

So my guess was thats happening becoz its a little long! Again I am saying “my guess” becoz I dont see the problem on my screen!!!

Ash; thanks, now I see!

Sorry for misunderstanding.

You’re right - it’s nothing to do with what you did; Yes - those strings (of characters) are too long to fit.

Although, as you and your friends are experiencing, it will depend to some extent on their browser settings… I see them not wrapping, for example.

So the simplest thing will be to change the wording, if you can. Or make the image less wide etc. Good luck!
