Where in my CSS can I fix this problem?


This has bugged me for awhile:

]Sebastopol Bar and Grill

Does anyone else see where the content boxes overlap my frame? Does that make sense? As a graphic designer, that just bugs the heck out of me.

Obviously I am not a web designer; I'm a print designer. I am fine at copy/pasting someone else's skin for my board, but am hopeless at trying to finesse it.

If anyone could hazard a guess as to where I can cheat the CSS code to make my "frame" bigger so that the content doesn't look like it's busting out all over the place, I would really appreciate it!

I have a feeling that the width of the Google ad module might have something to do with it. If I could just get my table or whatever it's called to be bigger than the Google ads, it might work? I dunno. Just a guess.

Thanks for any and all help!

Hi there, you caught me on my last round of the night emoticon

Look in your CSS for this class:

.ak_msg_master_table which should have a width statement of around 750px or so. Since your background graphic is only 760px it makes the two look like they are overlapping each other. Both of them are actually smaller than the space used by the google ads right now so if you are cool with that then just adjust the width of the .ak_msg_master_table till the contents are inside the background frame which I am guessing is going to be somewhere around 730px +/- emoticon

Yay!!!! I futzed with the .ak_msg_master_table and finally got the content boxes inside the frame.

But the Google ad box and a few other things were still laying on top of the frame, and I figured out that the problem was the background gif that made up the frame, so I went in and re-jiggered that and uploaded it, and VOILA!

Wow. This whole ordeal made my bwain hurt! I don't think I could repeat this even if I tried.

Thanks so much for your help! I'm just trying to pretty up the board to maybe elicit a few more votes for the weekly contest.

Cheers!
