Is it possible to control the (physical) "size" of your post (in pixels)?

When you go to my main /blog/default.aspx page, it lists all the posts.

I have it in my settings set to 20 posts per page.  I have "only post description" checked, and set to 300 characters.

But is it possible to control the physical size of each box?  There's a lot of "white space" taking up too much space.  Like, each post is about 700 pixels wide, which is fine, but about 500 or so pixels tall. It shows the first 300 characters, then there's about 300 pixels of white space until the next post is listed.

I'd like to adjust things so that you each post is only about 200 or so pixels tall prior to opening the actual post itself, so the end-user doesn't have to scroll, scroll, and scroll to see more posts.  Then maybe I can start putting 30 posts per page instead of 20, for instance.

Is this possible?  Thanks!

Hi, 

Sounds like something that could be altered by adjusting your themes styling.

How you go about that depends on your comfort level with HTML and CSS.

You can use browser tools to examine element properties (in browsers other than IE right click to inspect element), this will reveal the names of elements and how they are styled, it might just be a case of changing paddings or margins in the theme style.css for those elements.
