    Hey Guys,

    I'm new to Thematic. I've just installed it on my site along with the gallery child theme from upthemes.

    What I'm trying to do is adjust how the footer widgets position themselves within the footer, right now I have placed 3 test widgets in the footer but it positions them vertically. What I would like is for them to be positioned horizontally one after another.

    Here is a link to the site so you can see what I'm talking about:

    I've looked at the thematic code and the theme code but honestly I'm completely lost!

    Could someone please point me in the right direction on how to achieve this.

  2. You could just try putting 1 widget in each of the 3 subsidiary asides. Widgets will stack vertically in each aside - so put search in the 1st, tags in the 2nd and recent comments in the 3rd.

  3. first these types of questions can be resolved in 30 seconds with firebug.

    line 935 of gallery's style.css

    #footer #subsidiary .aside {

    makes each footer aside the width of the full layout... so they have no choice but to stack up on each other. delete that and it will fall back to the thematic default width of 300px so they display side by side.

    Hey Thanks for the feedback guys, that took care of my problem.

    I also downloaded firebug as recommended but I have another question and I can't seems to use firebug to get the answer.

    As you can see on the homepage of the site pulls 10 thumbnails of the most recent posts I would like to adjust this number so I can display more post thumbnails on the homepage.

    Does anyone have an idea of how I can do this?

    Thanks again.

  5. firebug is great for CSS issues. be sure to mark the issue resolved.

    for your other question: in the WP dash, under settings> Reading Settings... there is an option for "Blog pages show at most". This is the number of posts shown on the blog page. the default is set to 10, which appears to be the number you currently have.
