[resolved] Forms CSS / WP-Polls (6 posts)

    I was trying to fix all the errors that Yosemite found on my site and while updating my CSS I also screwed up my WP-Polls format. I know it is related to the new CSS I'm using for forms, but I have no idea why the poll options are displaying horizonatally in FF (or all over the place in IE.) Could someone please give me a hint?

    I know it's pathetic that I don't know CSS yet, but as you can see I'm working on it. (Got rid of 111 errors so far!)

    Thank you for your time

    You really should mark the original thread resolved if you want to restart it here (have to go to lunch, will take a peek after).

    Thanks Yosemite, I marked the other one resolved. I didn't know I had to do that.

    Wow. That's a disaster area.

    From what I can see, changes you made to style.css are cascading into the polls.css.css (polls formatting). For example, find this in your style.css:

    form label {
    display:block;
    float:left;
    width:150px;
    }

    Then temporarily put a # in front of float:left; and you'll see the change.

    It looks like someone is mysteriously adding a lot of variations to the selectors (form in this example) and they are just flowing all over each other. It really needs to be re-done. Really. No kidding. Or I'll tell the wasps.

    Wow, I think just putting the # in there and removing the padding style fixed it. Does that mean it's not messy anymore?

    Thanks for your help Yosemite, you're the best! I got rid of 111 errors today too. :)

    It means it's probably ok until you make another change to it ;')

    About fixing the errors: Very cool. I mean that. It's a good looking site, no reason to not devote the time to making it good under-the-hood too.
