Expanding Kaiser Lore

One of the most annoying things about fleshing out these World War II inspired factions is that there isn't enough territory in the setting to go around. I mean we've got America, the UK, Germany, France, Japan, etcetera. There are only a handful of habitable worlds,...

Thumbnails Finished

The thumbnails for the Admiral Hipper, Cosmo Messer F2, and the KM-3s missile are finished. A bit rushed but they all look decent enough, especially the F2. Have a look. I also squished the frames a little to give the subjects more screen space. Once again, I think...

With just a little digging and the right amount of curiosity to push me forward, I finally managed to solve that pesky little border problem on the main Blog page.

Now for the record, it wasn’t the bit of CSS itself that was the issue. I knew exactly what I needed, or at least one version of it.

padding-bottom: 3%;

What I didn’t know until doing some hunting was where to put that piece of code. Divi’s really useful for people with no HTML or CSS experience whatsoever, but its UI can really get in the way if you’re used to working in external documents, directly calling classes yourself, or you’re just not familiar with the advanced section.

I have all of those problems.

Anyway, figuring this out took about ten minutes and made the blog’s main feed go from looking like this (Hover):

The Old Look

To this:

The New Look

Kind of subtle, but it makes all the difference. Having the border so close to the final line of text always made it tougher on the eyes, but I was willing to put up with it because having borders between the posts was the fix to a much worse problem I was having.

So I’m glad that’s fixed, and I’m glad this line right here is much easier to look at.
