  • Mood:

Have I used conflicting code in the same layer?

BACKGROUND:

I succeed in added vertical space at the top of the page above my side-component and above my entries with a slight variation on the code referenced in THIS question that I asked here in early Feb, basically by defining a vertical space size with
function Page::print_custom_head()
and then adding a
 """<div class="verticalSpacer"></div>"""; 
line into both
 function print_my_entries(Page p, string title) { 
and
 function print_profile(Page p) {
So far so good...

As another (final) "tweak" tonight I attempted to introduce some custom-sized horizontal spacing between the side component and the journal entries, and at the page sides with the code from THIS previous entry into this community.

THE PROBLEM:

The good part... the Horiz-Space code introduced the horizontal spacing, as advertised. (yeah!)

The bad part... it removed (as in it just disappeared) the top navigation bar (instead of using the navigation component, I prefer to turn that option off and have the navigation links in the bar across the top). It also removed the vertical space at the top I had previously worked to introduce; the components were instead aligned flush with the very top of the page.


shrunken screen shot after applying code:



Right now my journal, for comparison, is back as it was before I applied this horiz-space adding code (with Nav bar and a vertical spacing at the top).

THE QUESTION:

Why did this horiz-spacing code obliterate my "standard" top Nav bar?
Why did it remove the page-top spaces that I added in this same layer?
Is there any simple modification to this code where I can keep the top Nav bar and top-space, and also have horizontal space (preferably with this simple code)

thanks in advance for taking the time to read all this... any insight or help will be greatly appreciated. (-:
