Column spacing question

United States


I just started using Tiki for an annotation project (and it's awesome! Thank you SO MUCH for spending your time and labor to build something like this!) and I have a question.

We're hoping to annotate public domain literary nonfiction (the wiki part of the site is here: http://thesaintsmarginalia.com/wiki/tiki-index.php and you can see how I've laid out an essay for annotation here: http://thesaintsmarginalia.com/wiki/tiki-index.php?page=Michel+de+Montaigne%27s+%22Of+Cannibals%22) but I'd like to put a little more space in between the "Text" and "Annotation" columns, so the texts don't bleed into each other. If anyone can help me out, it would be *much* appreciated.

(And if I've posted in the wrong forum, missed the answer to my question in the Tiki documentation, or otherwise breached any sort of etiquette, I am SO SORRY in advance. This is my first forum post, so I can only plead newb ignorance.)

It looks like you're using the SPLIT plugin to create the table/columns. You could modify the CSS to add padding around each cell. For example:

.wikiplugin-split td {padding:1em}

Of course, this will add spacing around all cells.

Alternatively, if you only want spacing around the text in the right column, you could add a custom class to the text:

If you'd like to add an annotation, please click the pencil-and-paper icon to the immediate upper-right and type away.
and then add CSS to increase the left-side spacing for that text:
.myCustomClass {padding-left:1em}

See the Tiki docs for details on adding custom CSS to your site on the Look & Feel page.
