some themes do it and some themes don't. I think it has something to do with when u have a msg longer than 120 characters...
I don't know.

Yes, it can happen that certain templates have a narrow sidebar. Currently your site looks okay?

If you change the HTML code you enter:

Code: Select all

<h3 class="serendipitySideBarTitle serendipity_html_nugget_plugin"> Aboutme<br /><b></b></h3><br />
<b>Name:</b> Karan<br />
<b>Gender:</b> Guy<br />
<b>Country:</b> NZ<br />
<b>Birthday:</b> 18/09/87<br />
<b>Picture:</b> Not <a target="_blank" onclick="popup=window.open('aboutme.html', 'photo', 'height=478,width=438,scrollbars=no,statusbar=no,resizable=yes'); return false" href="aboutme.html">available</a>
<br />
<b>Email:</b> <a href="mailto:karan@karan.net.nz">karan@karan.net.nz</a>


Remove the first <h3>...</h3> tag, this is destroying the layout of certain templates. The title is already entered in the HTML nugget itself, so you don'T need to enter it inside the content...

yeah I did that shortly after posting that, but as i've already said the problem is not with the html nugget, its witht he shoutbox.

It also only started occuring (not everytime, but one in every five say..) when I got a msg that exceeded 120 characters. So I increased max to 300, but this didn't seem to solve the problem. Again, this only happens with some themes.. not all.

Yeah, that's a thing you can fix via CSS. Do you have a URL where the error appears?
