Change?

I know that I've changed the look of the blog again - I have been having troubles and cannot find how to change things around. It started with my ticker - the borders cut off the end of the ticker. I tried several different ones, but they all cut off the end. Well silly - move the borders! I cannot find out if that is possible or how to do it.

Then my counter disappeared. Yesterday I spent almost an hour trying to get that back on and nothing seemed to make it show up. Oh the words (title) would show but nothing on the blog itself. If I went into Layout and looked, the HTML code was there, so I don't know what to do. I tried removing it and re-inserting it about 6 times without success. That is why I did away with the cute border/edging thinking that might be the problem, but alas.

OK you computer genius (what is the plural of that word? geniuses?) can you help this wayward blogger?

The easiest way is to edit the html of your template. You will need to log into your account and go to layout. Under layout there is a tab labeled "Edit HTML" - this will open up your template in HTML. Now you need to search for:

#sidebar-wrapper {
width: 220px;

See that 220px? that is your sidebar width. Start increasing that number a bit at a time until everything fits. Change 220 to 250 save your template and view your blog using the preview button. If it still isn't big enuf do it again. If it is too big reduce the number.

HTH.
