CSS Positioning Woes. (2 posts)

    I'm nearly done porting a layout into WordPress, but I'm stuck with a couple of CSS issues.

    The original, static version can be viewed here and the dynamic version can be viewed here.

    The 2 problems as are follows:

    • The bottom right corner doesn't go right to the side of the page like it does on the static version. I think I crossed a wire when I did the porting to WordPress but I can't see where I went wrong.
    • The content block is absolutely buggered. Since I'm planning on using WP as a CMS (via Ryans Simple CMS), the ability to edit the image and the text is imperative.

    I've been wracking my head around these problems and have drawn a blank. Perhaps some input from the WP community would help. :)

    The static version has the CSS embedded in the HTML. I'll post the code for index.php below:

    <?php get_header(); ?>
    <?php if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
    	<div id="content-container">
    			<h1><?php the_title(); ?></h1>
    		<div id="content-top"></div>
    		<div id="main-content">
    		<div class="content-text">
    			<?php the_content(); ?>
    
    			<?php endwhile; ?>
    
    			<?php else : ?>
    
    			<h1>Not Found</h1>
    			<p>Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn't here.</p>
    
    			<?php endif; ?>
    	  </div><!--end content-text-->
    		</div><!--end main-content-->
    		<div id="content-bottom"></div>
      </div><!--end content-container-->
    <div id="btnrightcnr"></div>
    </div><!--end wrapper-->
    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    Thanks. :)

    Hi

    Your problem with the photo is this code

    .content-text {style.css (line 144)
    font-family:Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;
    font-size:10pt;
    margin-left:260px;
    }

    hich is adding a 260px left margin to the photo.

    You have floated the sidebar right, correctly. You are best off floating everything in the content box left, starting with content-container. Then you don't need to worry about left margins etc. Instead of clearing floats you float the next element in line left.
