* a question and suggestion to TeDomum staff, regarding the Write.freely blog display format *
Hello Ange, TeDomum!
Bon jour, and thank you for the excellent service I enjoy with the Write.Freely instance at TeDomum.
I wanted to write to you and ask a question -- regarding the displaying of pages in the instance.
From the very beginning of my usage of WF, I tried to understand how it displayed pages and images, and realized that it defaults to a 640 pixels wide column on my desktop or laptop displays.
Since then, I have always resized any images I use to fit that exactly - avoiding on-the-fly scaling, which degrades the image and causes delay. So far it has worked well for me.
When I open the URL of one of my pages directly, for example :
...it will display as created, optimally. Happy author!
However, when looking at my Blog view, the stream of all recent posts : https://write.tedomum.net/rgx/
...then I am dismayed to notice that my careful layout is mangled, since it seems to use a slightly narrower display width.
Sadly, that damages the presentation.
Could I ask you to consider reviewing the CSS for this function? I just took a screenshot (attached) and I do see the image size in a post is preserved at 640p, so no scaling is involved.
However -- the spacing on HR dividers is greatly compressed, and in general it seems to use a smaller size font, than the same page viewed directly by its URL.
[ Also posted at our Discourse Forums here : https://discourse.qoto.org/t/a-request-to-tedomum-regarding-the-write-freely-instance-post-display-css/348 - which might preserve the formatting and present better ]
Attachments, two images :
1. layout as seen on rgx blog feed stream (noticeable compression on vertical spacing; fonts seem ragged and possibly a bit smaller)
2. layout as seen on a page itself, with easier to read spacing on paragraphs and Horizontal Ruler breaks.

I took the question, with the screenshots and the same letter I wrote to you this morning, into the Write.freely Forums.
