  1. Is that when your problems started? Mad!!! Mine started on the 28th. I got one short post in on that day then... nothing ...so I now have WordPress installed on my site, but I have a major learning curve to overcome. It has a template that I can mess around with to merge it into the rest of the site design, but it is much more complicated than the blogger template. ahh... if only blogger... I am impressed that I (without a lick of help from anyone) could install it and not mess it up. I learned a lot tonight about setting up a mySQL database and user! Anyhow, my "new" blog (yet v
  2. I find that I have had no charms with publishing since April 28th and have not heard back from Blogger concerning my contacting them as well. I have been surfing and surfing to compare Textpattern with WordPress and cannot come to a quick decision about which will be better for me in the long run. I think I'm leaning toward wordpress simply because they seem to have more information readily available to a newbie like me and because I have read that it will import all of my Blogger archives and current posts (although I don't know how quite yet). I agree 100% about Blogger's easiness to modi
  3. Whew... I read on the haloscan forums that they were moving servers or something like that, so I figured the source of my problems had to go back to them sooner or later. I removed all references to haloscan on my blogger template, though, and I am s-t-i-l-l unable to publish. I try about every 10-30 minutes that I'm on the computer and it is very frustrating.... sorry that you experienced this as well, but at least I'm not alone. I have been checking out (and even downloaded) WordPress but I am very confused on where to begin with it, so I'm probably going to play the waiting game wi
  4. I've been using Blogger since the beginning of July last year. On December 28th I moved my blog from the blogger address (davejenbarnes.blogspot.com) to my website through the "Settings" then "Publilshing" menus offered on Blogger. In the eleven months I've been using Blogger, I have only recently run into problems which are creating a little frustration on my part. I have been unable to publish my posts since Wednesday... I have contacted them through their "help" form and am awaiting a response but in the meantime, I am looking at the alternatives such as Moveable Type. Blogger is o
  5. I'm a mac addict (which means I have no money to spend on programs since the dang computer was so expensive) so I use mainly free stuff and do every-single-thing by hand. I use The GIMP for all photo stuff and WebDesign 2.3 for my html, css, xhtml and other text files. Then I browse the life out of my pages to make sure they work in all different kinds of browsers! -Jennifer
  6. And here's Safari when I make the window skinnier. I AM A SPAMMER-er. oh well. Here ya go: Picture_3.pdf
  7. Bruce... fixed opera! Safari is just messed up. I don't know what it's doing wrong in making the page! Hmm... I wish I was more an expert in this stuff. Safari is frustrating me! Aaargh. ...and my husband thinks Safari is the best browser out there... well, I don't anymore. Here's a screenshot. I'll reply with one more. I say... don't worry about it. I mean, how many people out there really view it with Safari and complain about the extra margin? (just me, right?!) hehe... here's that screenshot. This one's full screen. Picture_2.pdf
  8. I do have quite a collection of browsers (to my husband's dismay--he says pick one and stick to it) but of course, they're all on a mac and they're all the "newest ones" since I just started my collection... As far as the 153 px left nav bar versus the 100%... I'll mess with your codes tomorrow (Tuesday--my day off) and see what I can come up with. I think some of it may have to do with using a table within the CSS layout div class="body" stuff... I'll get back with ya after doing some manipulation and viewing with opera and safari. Jennifer I don't mind being a browse

  10. Hiya Bruce! Just thought I'd check out your site using some of my extra browsers. First of all, I'm on a mac. In Safari 1.1.1 the text in the main space on the page appears off to the right quite a bit with a horizontal scroll bar. I admit, this is very strange! The left edge of text is under the "T" of the "WEB STORE" tab... something that Safari is doing wrong prolly as none of the other browsers I've checked it with are interpreting it that way! Also on Safari, the left vertical menu has some spacing issues with the subtitles: BUY ONLINE, HELP, and OTHERS. All of those are si
