WordPress blog integrated ok, but comments page looks yucky (8 posts)

    Hello,

    May I pick your brain? I am working on a WordPress Blog for a client @: http://www.saharaheve.com/blog/

    Blog integrates fairly well into the existing site design (that was a chore in of itself). When looking over the individual comment pages, however, I noticed they are all stripped of formatting. Very ugly.

    Blog's index page was modified, and the CSS code was embedded in the page itself after reworking the index page's look and feel. Any idea as to what I did wrong in that area? Your help would be much appreciated!

    Marc

    ETA: I am using Dreamweaver CS4 to edit the code, and I'm on a mac.

    dreamweaver is not ideal for editing - you need to use a plain text editor

    That's good to know. Thanks for replying, Sam. Could this be related to my issue with the comments page?

    I did notice something added a ton of extra lines in the index code, where I'm storing the css. I'll minimize and see what happens. I also suspect I have some conflicts going on too, but I just can't get a grip on it yet.

    the problem with rich text editors is they tend to add extraneous code which becomes problematical
    this may or may not be what is happening

    Hi Sam,

    Well, I tried changing out the entire code with a fresh copy of it from the original theme css...problem still exists, though. I'm in for a long and painful lesson, it seems. Thanks for helping out, though; much appreciated.
