Blog columns, like people, sometimes just can't get along.


Actually, this short article is simply a behind-the-scenes, little-known tip I've discovered, regarding why acts strangely at times... like today at, when the 2 columns got 'out of sorts' and just couldn't seem to get along side-by-side.

I've found that happens anytime something in one column or the other gets 'too big for its britches' -- ie, it gets 'too wide' and starts encroaching on the other column's 'space'.

Sorta like people at times, I suppose.

So the cure was, finding what was 'too wide'... usually it's an image that's too wide, but this time it was a piece of text that was too wide. Blogger doesn't know how to wrap really long pieces of text (including symbols, like **************************** or ___________________________ ). Or long hyperlink addresses.

Since I have learned this, it's easy to spot, like this morning when I noticed columns were out of sync... I simply went into the offending post and reduced the swollen string of characters the author had used as a divider between paragraphs.

Maybe that's the trick with people too -- just try to reduce our swollen heads. Our pride.

"Act justly, love mercy, and walk HUMBLY."

God bless all you bloggers out there... and the rest of you trying to emmulate Jesus.

Thanks for posting! We've only just begun.

God's Word

Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons; he sets up kings and deposes them. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him. Daniel 2:20-22 NIV
