Revision as of 11:50, 2 June 2011

I'm finding that the line spacing default between paragraphs is a little too small. It's hard for me to discern between a regular new line in a paragraph, and the start of a new one. On my free will page, I've resorted to putting in an extra line break to accentuate the separation, but Ted hasn't done that on his pages. Could you adjust the CSS to make the new paragraph spacing a litle larger?


Yes, I can adjust the CSS, I had thought about doing this before, but Ted had already put line breaks into his articles, and he seemed overwhelmed at the time, so I let it go. Please ask Ted if it's OK for me to make the adjustment. If I make the adjustment, can you remove the line breaks from all of the existing articles including his? --David Mathis 14:10, 1 June 2011 (CDT)


I have been using double CRs to give adequate break between paragraphs. Not perfectly happy with this as it seems like too much at times. Adjust it and we will see how it goes. I can take out extra spaces not needed within the pages I created.

Did you both see the new page I put up regarding editing? --Ted Vollers 11:14, 2 June 2011 (CDT)


Yes, it's pretty good for instructions for simple edits. I am reading on advanced editing (what a wiki is all about) and OO can't handle the advanced stuff. For example I am going to start building templates that will add info boxes etc to enhance user experience. If you look at this page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_Einstein you will notice the info box top left. These type things can't be done in OO. I don't have any issue setting up the needed structure to accomplish these type things.


Paragraphs have been adjusted at the CSS skin level to have a bottom margin of 1em. Please let me know if this looks better.
