    Have a look at the website if you can in Internet Explorer. All pages are perfect except for the comment one. Anybody know what's wrong with it?

    Any kind of help is always appreciated. :)

    your site is absolutly not perfect in firefox, I can't read anything because the headerimages is over the content and the sidebar is right, extremly right,

    in the last day I saw seven or eight blogs all with the same problems, and all with the same css

    *soifz*
    in the moment I can't help you -- sorry, and I don't understand what happens

    it's like this prob:

    Okay, let me clear this first. I will be using a Javascript code which will detect if the person is using Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox. I have 2 CSS files. The Firefox's CSS file is perfect and ready. Everything displays properly. Forget about Firefox. I have it ready and it looks all good. :)

    The CSS file uploaded right now is the Internet Explorer one. I'm just testing how it looks on Internet Explorer. So you will have to view the website in Internet Explorer just to see what the problem is. And the problem is with the comment page. Could you please check again?

    Thank you guys. Your help will be appreciated. :)

    Let _me_ clear _this_ first..... it does NOT look all good in Fx.... I just looked... the header image is hoarked and doesn't come close to being lined up with the rest of the page....

    I'm not a betting gnome, but if I were, I'd be willing to be that the problem in Fx is the same as IE, and is probably due to a messed up div tag or something.

    I said forget about the Firefox! I said I have 2 CSS Files! One for Firefox and the other one for Internet Explorer. The Firefox one is ready and it appears perfectly fine! The CSS file uploaded right now is for Internet Explorer. When I will finish fixing the site in Internet Explorer.. then I'll use a Java code which will detect which browser the person is using and according to that, it will load a proper CSS file

    Forget about the site in Firefox right now. I have everything fixed for it. I just need help in Internet Explorer. Just the comment page is messed up in Internet Explorer.

    I hope you get what I am saying this time.

    A properly designed site should work across browsers...

    But Internet Explorer can't read the CSS properly. I have seen many, well designed websites that only work for Firefox... and not for Internet Explorer.

    So is there anyway, I could fix the comment page in Internet Explorer? Can you figure it out by looking at the source?

    Um, not to be obnoxious about the whole CSS thing, but in Safari, it looks really bad.

    My friend, screenshot or not... you are on a wrong path. There are more than 2 browsers in the web world. Are you going to provide a CSS file for each of them?
    I don't know how to make different stylesheets for different browsers... Sometimes even one is too much :)

    Sure, here is the first: http://mequoda.com/image1.gif
    And here is the second: http://mequoda.com/image2.gif

    You also have a fatal error on your archives page, but you probably already knew that.

    Not sure if you want to spend money, but here's a browser compatibility service that takes pictures. $15 for one time use.... eh.

    mequodallie: Thank you. :) And yes, I know there is an error on Archives and I have done that on purpose at the moment.

    moshu: Yes, I am not going to make CSS file for each one. Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox are the most used ones. That's why I made it for them.

    Anyways, so in order to fix this... should I try and re-code my CSS? I guess that's the only way. =/

    Are you using a default theme (obviously modified) and if so, which one?

    Perhaps you could just make your nameplate shorter?

    Well I've modded the Kubrick template.

    Uh huh�what was the default header image size? Perhaps because you modified that, you need to modify where the rest of the content sits on the page?

    Who am I to tell you what should you do?
    I know that you started this design by modifying the Default theme, and even if I don't like it I have to admit that it works perfectly across browsers. Somewhere along the way your modifications became too much for the browsers. It happens to all of us. The only advice I can give you: don't let the browser check till the end - do it after every major step, modification in design. That way you'll always know where the mistake happened.

    mequodallie: The Kubrick template header? I don't really know. =/

    And what do you mean by modify rest of the content? Margin, padding and etc?

    moshu: I guess I was wrong. I had planned to check the site in other browsers after I was done with everything. Also, I don't have other browsers. I only have IE and Firefox.. I was wrong I guess. =/ Thanks though. I'll see what I can do now....

    Oh wait�nope. Your content is pulling off and to the right of the body... I missed that first time around. Check your CSS and see if you have everything aligned correctly. Is it possible that your content (or body or whatever) is centered and sized differently than the rest of your content?

    Another thing�it sucks, but always works. Reinstall. Save your CSS if you can, then upload each line individually, while constantly checking it.

    That's actually a good idea. I think I should try it.

    Remade as mequodallie said. Looks perfectly fine in Firefox and Internet Explorer at my end. What about your guys'?

    Also, could someone post a screenshot from Safari, only if they don't mind?

    Thank you.

    Thanks mequodallie. Appreciated. :)

    I have one more question, it's a little off-topic.

    All my WP stuff is located in http://xeenat.com/wordpress.

    I'm want to move everything to my root directory so when people won't have to type http://xeenat.com/wordpress to view my new site.

    So, if I move it to my root directory, wouldn't the links of the other pages get messed up? For example the "Portfolio" section. The link is http://xeenat.com/wordpress/?page_id=9

    If I move it to the root directory, would it then become http://xeenat.com/?page_id=9, itself or would I have to do something?

    Hope I explained it well. =/

    You should be able to do that just fine. What FTP do you use? It should automatically update itself.
