    hello all, i seem to have a problem with the css on my 'author' page --

    http://waxidermy.com/author/hcrink/

    the menu, as you can see, is all the way at the bottom of the page for this particular user. however, if you check another 'list posts by author' page, it shows up fine --

    http://waxidermy.com/author/admin/

    any ideas what is happening here?

    I had a look around the links that you provided, and I cannot see anything in particular that could be wrong ..

    So here's a list of things that you might have to check to mail down the issue:

    1. Check your widths in the CSS and make sure none of the posts are making any trouble.

    2. Check for un-closed containers in the (X)HTML code ..

    3. And perhaps you might want to validate your document a little better, that would help a lot in seeing what might be going wrong. You have a whopping 432 errors in your XHTML Strict DOCTYPE validation .. :D

    If none of that helps, then post back ..

    First you need to figure out what is wrong, and then you can correct it ..

    Do you have more than the two author pages that you posted the links to?

    It seems all the others are working fine .. which brings us to the conclusion that one of the posts by that author is the one that is causing the problems.

    I will try take a look at the individual posts, and get back to you if I find something wrong ..

    Maybe someone else has other ideas ..

    also, does anyone know a plugin that will only show 10 results at a time for an 'author search' ?

    cool link, it's allowing me to organize the entries by title, but when i try entering "10 posts per page" it's still showing all posts.

    is there a search tag for 'previous' and 'next' that i need?
