Solved How to edit the padding on polls?

Post by Candy Kane on August 2nd 2010, 12:17 am

Hi there, the problem with the polls on Writers' Well is that they only use up half of the available space and look really ugly as a result. How can I make this look better?

What I want to do is stretch the text across the page so it look neater. Can some kind soul please give me the code? Thanks in advance.

If you mean , The "Link" is looking ugly , then you can get it shortened at
Tinyurl.com

Please click on the link to see what the problem is. The URL is fine. The way the poll looks is not.

Lol , I just did , and that's why I suggested you to replace the current links with the shortened using Tinyurl.com

Hello,

You can fix it with CSS. Navigate to Admin CP > Display > Colors > CSS
Add this code there and submit...

Code:
.frm label {
margin-right : 50px;
}

But, the best solution will be to shorten the URLs using tynyurl.com.

Ah, you mean the URLS of the stories in the polls? Got it. Thanks for the code. Even with the shorter URLs, it still only uses up half the space it could, and that's what I was having problems with.

Sorry, but your code didn't work. I used this, and the results are most satisfactory:

Code:
fieldset.frm-set dl dt,fieldset.frm-set dl dd {
   padding: 0.2em;
   }
fieldset.frm-set dl dt {
   display: block;
   width: 68em;
   text-align: left;
   float: left;
   font-weight: bold;
   }
fieldset.frm-set dl dd {
   margin-left: 0.2em;
   }

Problem solved!

I do appreciate the help, though, because you gave me some clues as to which bits of code to edit. Thanks, guys!

Since this thread appears to be solved, I will lock this thread and mark it as solved.
