Spring Cleaning

You'll notice in the sidebar area I've rearranged a few things, put them in their "proper" categories and such. I've also added a few new sites to the roster:

Query Letters I Love: a development executive's blog about the "stuff" she wades through to find produceable material.

Hot As Love: My friend James Felix McKenney's site reviewing exploitation movies.

Scripts Wanted: a nifty little site that contacted me. No explanation required.

Retromedia Forum: Fred Olen Ray's message Board. Sign up and listen to us D2DVD "workhorses" rant about our flicks.

But if anyone can tell me how to get rid of those silly dotted lines on the bottom, then it would be much appreciated.

You'll also notice the sitemeter, which will tell me how many of you visit me and what holds your interest. Useful information for the future of this blog.

I'll finish up the Blade: Trinity review tonight / tomorrow, but expect light blogging from me as I am moving in two weeks from Pulp Central here near the Silverlake reservoir to a new undisclosed secret HQ.

Stay tuned...

First off, love the site.

When you are editing you blog, open the template and look for the site meter. Below that you should see /ul repeated 5 times. Just delete them.

Just tried it - nothing there to delete under the sitemeter. Thinking it's something else pulled from another area of the template and is somehow squashed into the sidebar...

Okay I looked into CSS Style sheets (the only alternative was working on my screenplay)and what you need to find the parts that say "dotted" and change them to "none", these will be in the sections like
/* Sidebar Content
/* Profile

I duplicated your source code and this works okay.
Damn, now I have to go back to writing....

Scott's close but not quite right. What's happened is that you're missing the closing </ul> tags after each section of links. You want each section to look something like this:

<h2 class="sidebar-title">Category</h2>
<li><a href="url">Link</a></li>
<li><a href="url">Link</a></li>
<li><a href="url">Link</a></li>

You should be able to copy and paste this and use it as a template.

This will get rid of the funny nesting, and it will put the fine dotted line between each category. To get rid of the dotted line entirely, make the stylesheet change the Gary mentioned.

Oh, Hi, Bill. Love your blog, I meant to say (formatting html to show up in html takes a bit out of you).

Thanks everyone for the input... I'll work on this soon, but for right now I'm working on packing boxes and getting ready to move.
