Long Comments visually broken in "Elegant Grunge" (4 posts)

    I have been using the elegant grunge template for a while (with a few modifications) and it has been great. But now my site is starting to attract some verbose commenters, and I noticed that the visual template for comments only allows for short ones (then they seem to go outside their box) Example:

    Someone bugged me about it recently and said it has to do with this line in my css:
    .commentlist li .comment-content, .commentlist li .before-comment,
    .commentlist li .after-comment, .commentlist li .after-comment div

    ...which should be broken up into three sections.

    But I don't have the CSS know-how! I split up the images into three, but can't seem to get the visual right. Help?

    I'm not sure what you mean "should be broken up into three sections and I don't see a problem with the CSS.

    The page actually looks fine in Firefox, but presumably there is a problem on other browsers. It looks like there is an extra </li> tag at the end of every comment -- which is probably causing the issue.

    You actually have quite a lot of errors on the page -- so you might look into those as well:

    One more thing I just noticed when looking at the theme page -- it has not been updated in 3 years -- so that may be an issue, if not now, then more likely as WP gets updated.

    Hi! Thanks... I should delete this, as I fixed it earlier today. I appreciate your engagement though!
