After the Author field has gone, we use the Custom fields, but .. the look/ design / placing are pr default with much to much space, both between lines, but also from Title / "Author" and authors name:
How can I correct this? (Not a programmer)

Hi Kim,

as always just use CSS for this ;) Default is 33% width for the label, you can adjust that to yoru needs. If you have multiple it's nice to have a fixed value if not just set it to auto.

.compojoom-bootstrap .mat_customfields .dl-horizontal dt {
width: auto;
}

Kind regards,
Yves

P.S.: CSS is not a programming language, but an easy to learn, need to have, markup language :P You can learn HTML + CSS in no time!

Hi Yves. Thank you.
Thank for your reply.
Actually I have made quite a few CSS change. Still what I´m struggling with is to find the right lines to correct?
and ...as I,, after the project / site is up running, only once in a while make changes, it hard to be "sharp". even though "CSS is easy" :-)
But thank you for the quide, I´ll look into it 
Ps. Have some other issues, I will write to you about later.

Don't change the CSS file, just copy the code from me into your Joomla templates css file (at the bottom). So you can easily update and keep changes priorized over native Matukio CSS.

Take a look at the new docu for how to easily find what you need to change:

yvesh.gitbooks.io/matukio-events-for-joo...tent/adjust_css.html

(It basically just points to a blog article, but i am still extending this)

Kind regards,
Yves

Hi Yves.
Thanks a lot.
Nice article. I´ll use some Christmas-time to be a better "firebugger".
Has used Firebugs for some time, but seems to be missing quit a lot.
I think it nice that you see the Joomla issues and Matukio issues as a whole picture.
I think a lot (most) of potential custumors / users, would not know or have interest in what Joomla is.
They just need a event / ticket - system.
So, to reach more custumors in smaller / medium compagnies, that need to do the job themself, it a good idea to "dress up" administrators with a few "CSS - etc" - lections.
Nice work.
