Wrapping text around profile pic in post
On my BuddyPress installation, my profile name is long enough to where my name is split into two lines. This is fine; however, the first line of my post begins below my picture and name.
You can see here of what I’m referring: http://www.gumpolen.com/blog/category/city-desk/
If we could have the post text wrap around the profile picture and name, that would really tighten up the thread vertically and remove a lot of “hubins,” as we call them in the printing business, pronounced “hewbins.” Hubins are a lot of blank space. Some space is needed to allow the eye a chance to find references, such as a single post among many, but once a post’s parameter is defined with the eye, the space within that post can be set at somewhat of a minimum. Any extended or greater white space within a thread would simply be reserved for spaces between individual posts.
I don’t have the ability to do what you folks do. I admire and respect what you’ve built. In my limited capacity of understanding, I’m simply able to utilize your final product, which is, of course, the front end of BuddyPress. I very much enjoy writing — not code like you, but news and stories — and after many, many years, I’ve trained myself to look at my work once it’s completed and reexamine it and see how the everyday individual would interpret it or what type of impression it may place upon them. It’s simply a frame of mind, which amounts to getting one’s self to rediscover something as if it’s brand new, even though you’re the one who had created it in the first place.
This is just an idea. Perhaps this extra space in my thread is a product of the BP Columns child theme that I have installed on BuddyPress. I’m not sure, exactly, but I wanted to share this thought with you.
Thanks for reading.
