    I think this will be the last bit of help I need.

    1. My blog page has some funky alignment on my latest post. It is (-) instead of moving words to the next line and I cannot separate paragraphs. This didn’t happen on my first two, I tried to align it both to left and center and neither made a difference.

    2. The featured images that I have on my child page take up so much space, is there any way to use an image that is much thinner but will display properly on the grid page?

    3. Can I create category archives as a child page? For example, when I blog about recipes or nutrition, can there be a way to automatically connect to all those and access them from a link at the grid page?

    Thanks again you all!

    The blog I need help with is mindbodybride.com

    What’s happened is that there are <div> tags throughout the post that are causing the layout to misbehave. If you click the Text tab you’ll see them all. Try removing all <div> and </div>tags and things should return to normal. Be sure to catch all the opening and closing div tags, because an unbalanced tag can wreak havoc on the layout. :-)

    Sure, try reducing the dimensions of your image while preserving the same ratio of height to width. In other words, try shrinking it in an image-editing program before uploading it, but don’t crop it.

    One workaround I can think of is to create a child page with some text about the category, and then a link to the category within that text, like “Check out the posts in my NameOfAwesomeCategory here.” It would require an extra click from the user, but it’s the only workaround I can think of at the moment.

    Hi Kathryn, thanks for checking in. I will go through all of this this afternoon and let you know if I need any more assistance. If you haven’t heard of me by tonight let’s assume the thread can close :)

    1. Removing <div> fixed the alignment issues in terms of paragraph spacing but sentences are still being broken up with hyphens. I just noticed this happened on my other posts too….

    2. Thanks – I am happy with the sizing.

    3. Finally, only 2 of my child pages are showing up in the drop down menu of The Goods. Was that something I need to activate?

    Ah, I didn’t realize you wanted to remove hyphenation. Thanks for clarifying.

    Try adding this to your custom CSS:

    .entry-content,
    .entry-summary,
    .page-content,
    .widget {
    -webkit-hyphens: none;
    -moz-hyphens: none;
    -ms-hyphens: none;
    hyphens: none;
    word-wrap: normal;
    }

    Since you’re using a custom menu, you’ll need to add your new pages manually, under Appearance > Menus. Select “Mind Body Bride Sample Menu” from the dropdown menu. Here’s a screenshot:

    It’s been my pleasure!

    I’m closing this thread now, but just start a new one if you need anything else.
