    So I’m trying to figure out how to fix my comment margin on the site. I found some code on another support post but it didn’t quite work perfectly.

    My comments currently flow in to the sidebar and I obviously need to fix that. When I changed the margin it moved it too far to the left, I really just need to fix the right margin. I’m sure it’s real easy but couldn’t get it to look just right.

    http://alightfilledlife.com/?p=943#comments is the site or http://bit.ly/T8y3ir

    Thanks guys and keep up the great work!


    Hey evanhp,

    First I would suggest updating the theme by downloading the most recent version from your Downloads on Themeforest. Then install the new version overtop of the old in the same way you first installed the theme.

    This will atleast make sure any fixes are being applied to the most recent and updated css.

    The immediate fix would be to add the following CSS to your Quick CSS (located under the Styling Tab in the theme options) or the custom.css file in the css folder of your theme files:

    .comment_text.entry-content {
    width: auto;

    Edit: This should also fix the Tags overlapping your social icons, I just noticed that was happening as well:

    .blog-tags.minor-meta {
    margin-top: 20px;




    1. I used the first code for the comments and it still didn’t seem to keep the text from overlapping in to the sidebar.

    2. The tags code seemed to work though.

    3. And on the install comment, I have worked so hard to get this to work properly I am afraid to install anything else.

    Im also waiting to install wordpress for the same reason as well.

    Each time I install something I seem to run in to hiccups with the design. Will I not ave to adjust anything if I download the newer version of the theme?

    Thanks, any help would be appreciated.


    Hi evanhp,

    For #1, open your custom.css and find this code:

    .template-blog .entry-content {
    float: left;
    position: relative;
    width: 615px;

    The width is what’s causing the comments to push into the sidebar so try changing width: 615px; to width: auto; like this:

    .template-blog .entry-content {
    float: left;
    position: relative;
    width: auto;

    As far as the updating the theme. We do recommend that you keep your WordPress install, plugins and theme up-to-date simply for security reasons. An out of date install of WordPress could result in your website being hacked. That said, here’s some steps to ensure you have less problems when updating.

    – Make sure all CSS customizations are located in the custom.css.

    – Make note of any customizations you did to template files such as page.php, header.php and footer.php.

    – Inside the zip file you download from ThemeForest, Kriesi has included a version log document that tells what files were altered. The safest way to make sure your customizations aren’t overwritten is to manually update. By that I mean instead of overwriting the entire theme only overwrite those files (or folders) listed in the version log.

    – Backup your existing theme and data prior to updating. This way in case anything does happen you can revert back.

    – Take screenshots of your theme options. Again, just in case anything does happen.

    Hope this helps!
