using css to make blog posts display like a gallery..


Recommended Posts

It's a question I already asked on the Wordpress forum and they told me to go ask a css forum (kind of telling me to get lost...) so please don't send me away.I want to make a certain category on my blog where posts, instead of being one on top of the other, would display in rows of 3, like a gallery. It's to display images, all of the same size, with a rating under them.I started by making a new template for that category, which instead of calling div id="content" calls another id which I created in the css file and named div id="content2". In the css I made that id 150px wide.Hoping to make these new div content float inline to the left, I created a new class in the css I named div.floatHowever, it's a pathetic failure... All I have are my posts one on top of the other just as before, except they're 150px wide.Does anybody have an idea how I could get these posts to float inline?Here's the category as it isHere's my theme's css with the #content2 and div.float I created
