Clean Archives Plug-in Alignment In Kubrick Default (7 posts)

    I recently installed the Clean Archives plug-in as found here;

    I then created a page template as per Chris Jarvis;

    http://www.chrisjdavis.org/2005/05/26/secrets-of-wp-theming-part-1/

    Everything is fine with the plug-in and page. But, I can't figure out for the life of me how to get it to align on the page correctly. The month and year are hanging off the left side of the page.

    Could someone visit my site and look at my CSS.

    I have WP 1.5.1 and the Kubrick default template.

    If someone could give me a clue I would be most grateful.

    Thanks!
    Ron

    That page is not HTML valid. Fix that first, please.

    I use firefox with the web developers extention. But, I have only been able to read and learn to utilize XHTML, CSS, PHP, and related things on my off days over the past year. In other words, I'm a novice. I clicked on validate HTML and get in return a whole slew of things to add and remove. When I do as instructed by the validator, it starts telling me that the changes I made per it's recommendation is what's now wrong. Either I'm doing something wrong or it continuesly contradicts itself.
    Can anyone give me advice on how to use the validator properly?

    thanks
    Ron

    Not your fault, I couldn't understand why it gave you that validation errors, either. I'm working on it still.

    Thanks, I appreciate your help. I'm trying to read up on using the validation and web developer plug-in. I realize the importance of it. I'm also studying other peoples sites using Ardvark. If you have any suggestions that point me in the right direction, that would be great.

    I believe you're missing the closing tag for <div class="main">.
    The closing tag ("</div>") should be place before the last <hr />.

    What I suggest,
    replace <div class="main">
    with <div id="content" class="widecolumn">
    and then don't forget the closing tag I mentioned, if it's indeed missing.

    It worked!!! exactly as you prescribed. Thank you so much!!! I vaguely new it had to be something to do with a div, but, my limited knowledge kept me from knowing what should be there.

    Thank you
    Ron
