Did you follow the "famous 5-min install"? Where did the trouble appear?

I redesigned my blog finally
It's easier than I thought..
on blogger..
The options for colouring your text and sizing,etc are all at the top and then they edit the bottom codes for you... I was playing with both...

I notice my blog is different on a Mac and PC (?)
the text is nice on a PC, but easier to read on a Mac..

Some of my old posts suffered a little because the width/height have changed and warped the post margins ^^ Some of the text is cut off. Does anyone know how to fix this? In a word doc for example, you can choose "text wrap" but I can't find a code for this...

When I signed up for Blogspot last week my template had my profile and archives all on the side.
I am really sure I didn't press anything but now they are showing up at the bottom of my page and everything (like blog,italic and photos) are inserted with those codes.
ex. <a>shjkehkhdaksjjohnlenno <<l

know what I mean? why is this happening?

my blog is www.melcarrey.blogspot.com if it helps. Im having fun with it otherwise. Great place to express myself

^ oh you made it too wide
did you edit the size of the sections.. like widen the column for the profile and the column for the blog posts?

If they are too big together, the profile column will get pushed to the bottom

ok hmm..

When you go to Layout > Edit HTML
go to the spot that says #outer-wrapper , #main-wrapper, and #side-wrapper
play with those numbers till you get a fit you want
like 100px for the #side-wrapper (profile)
and maybe 500px for #main-wrapper

i think #outer-wrapper is the width for both main-wrapper and side-wrapper combined

i don't think i saw this in this forum yet, but how can i make the header size larger on blogger? it's really annoying that it can only be 660px across...i've seen other blogs with it going across the whole page, but i don't know how to do that! i looked in my html for a header wrapper or for 660 near the header section for me to adjust, but there was nothing. i'd love some help! thanks!!

Right, go to 'edit html', look for this section:

---------------------------------------
/* Outer-Wrapper
----------------------------------------------- */
#outer-wrapper {
width: 890px;
margin:0 auto;
padding:10px;
text-align:$startSide;
font: $bodyfont;
}
#main-wrapper {
width: 420px;
margin-left: 25px;
float: $startSide;
word-wrap: break-word; /* fix for long text breaking sidebar float in IE */
overflow: hidden; /* fix for long non-text content breaking IE sidebar float */
}
#sidebar-wrapper {
width: 205px;
float: $endSide;
word-wrap: break-word; /* fix for long text breaking sidebar float in IE */
overflow: hidden; /* fix for long non-text content breaking IE sidebar float */
}
#newsidebar-wrapper {
width: 215px;
float: left;
word-wrap: break-word; /* fix for long text breaking sidebar float in IE */
overflow: hidden; /* fix for long non-text content breaking IE sidebar float */
}
----------------------------------------

The outer wrapper is the width of your blog.. as you can see, I've made mine 890px. Fiddle around with that, and you can also expand your sidebars too if you want.. copy and paste that over yours if you want to make it easier, but save your template just in case.

The section I just posted is basically the width of everything on my blog, as long as the main wrapper, and both sidebars add up to a sum no more then 890px, then it's fine.

If you only have one sidebar, you won't have the newsidebar bit.

if u are talking about google adsense, u need a google account first and sign up for the adsense account. and if you are on blogspot, your dashboard should have something called Monetize does it?
