Having problems with my wishful thoughts template.

I’m pretty sure I did everything in the guide correct. I even uninstalled and reinstalled TP twice, I cannot understand what the issue is. It look like it’s not seeing the stylesheet but I followed the css instructions to the letter.

here is my current site, can anyone help?

Just open the header form in a different text editor and get the contents into the corresponding form and you should be fine. Some editors don’t display anything for some reason – it’s a common problem with TXP templates.

Re: Having problems with my wishful thoughts template.

Well I can tell you I emailed the author, she told me the same thing that I was missing the deader. In the zip file for her templates, the header was the ONLY file that was blank to me. I’m using a Mac and use Textedit to open those files for C&P. When she emailed me just that header again and it was blank, I tried opening the file using my web design software, Coda from Panic software. I was able to see the code then and now the template works.

I have a few other issues though.

One the Flickr is working for me but the images show bigger than the area given for it. Is this something I need to fix at Flickr or somewhere in the template?

Two if you go to this page (http://www.philhanson.com/article/?c=Lively-Tedium) you can see the the words “Articles in ‘Liverly Tedium” is smack dab against the title of the first article, where in the css would I go to move that down some? Anyone know? Thanks alot.

It seems that some editors (like Textedit) do not render all of the content when a text file has a doctype, maybe treating it as an HTML page.

I received lots of emails regarding this issue for my Serene template.

Re: Having problems with my wishful thoughts template.

I’ve had many an email about this concerning my ports and have had to add a special item about it in my installation instructions. It appears to be a problem with the default text editor on Macs. It seems to want to process the file rather than render it as text. Changing text editors seems to be the best solution.
