After messing up the layout to my blog the other day I angrily turned off the StyleCatcher plugin and reverted to the default layout. Sometimes I just have to walk away from tricky technical problems for awhile before I can fix them. That was the case this time.
I reinstalled a little bit ago and tried out one of the styles on a test blog and it worked fine. I then found a style that matches the rest of my website and successfully applied it to my blog. Woo hoo!
