    Hello Leland

    Thank you for all your support in the past with Adaline on WordPress.

    I wanted to ask if there was a way of adjusting the layout on blog posts so that the author name does not overlap with the text. Mine is a bit long and now intrudes on the beginning lines of the text.

    Thanks very much in advance,

    Naomi

    The blog I need help with is storieswitheverything.com.

    Hi Naomi,

    Thanks so much for using the Adaline theme!

    Yep, I have a couple suggestions for your consideration:

    1) First, I wanted to mention that the Display Name (*not* Username) can be customized, which would be reflected on your blog posts.

    If you were to change your Display Name to “Naomi” then it would look like this: https://cloudup.com/cAm8Js2EU1N

    There is more information about that in this WordPress.com article: https://wordpress.com/support/change-your-username/

    2) If you’d like to keep your Display Name as-is, that’s okay too. We’d just need to make some alterations to the layout with Custom CSS.

    Here is an example:

    body .post-author {
    	display: block;
    }
    
    body .post-author .byline {
    	padding-left: 0;
    	padding-top: 5px;
    }

    After that, your blog posts will look like this: https://cloudup.com/cGsuk_x1_SY

    Hope this helps and please let me know how it goes!

    Best regards,
    Leland

    Hi Leland

    Thank you so much for such a quick response – so helpful! An easy fix to change my display name – and works a treat.

    I may well use your Custom CSS down the line, but good to have a fix to make it look less cluttered straight away.

    I’m hoping to expand the site a bit more so I may well pop up on here again – Thanks in advance!

    Thanks again for your support with using Adaline!
