WordPress looks bad in Opera browser (17 posts)

    Hi there!
    I am a fairly experienced PHP programmer (been working with PHP, mostly BBS's, for about 4 years now.) I just started blogging lately; been trying out all types of scripts to use, and decided on WordPress since it's PHP and that's how I like it.
    Anyhow, it's a great script, but one thing I do not like is that certain pages don't look too great in Opera browser.
    Such as this: http://www.kinggary.com/screenshots/wordpress.png
    I'm going to play around with the code and hopefully make it look right in Opera.

    Wow, I just tested it in Opera. Man, it is messy.
    Mind you, I consider Opera to be the hybrid of IE and Mozilla. Some, well, quite a few elements are supported improperly.
    It could be because of Opera's layout engine, because the page is valid and sticks to XHTML 1.0 Transitional standards.

    The page actually is not valid - I got a few errors right away.

    Hey, buddy...do you need a hug? ;) Are you sure it's not just The Sushubh Effect?

    Perhaps someone could do an Opera admin stylesheet.

    the fix is to change this:

    <fieldset id="blabla">
    ....
    </fieldset>

    to

    <div id="blabla">
    <fieldset>
    ...
    </fieldset>
    </div>

    and everything works fine.

    This hack works just fine, though the boxes seem a bit on the squished side and when viewing the page in Full Screen Mode (F11) the Categories Box navigates itself to the top of the page. Hopefully WordPress staff will develop a version that works as well on Opera as it does on other browsers.
    Another thing to point out is IE's lack of CSS, which was unable to interpret my stylesheet appropriately so I'm trying to find a solution to that... Microsoft needs to spend more time on their browser!

    It's been dead for years as far as they are concerned.

    WordPress looks bad in Opera 7.54 too...
    I try to solve this easy bug by CSS or I try the features of Blog:CMS too...

    Thanks for this one. Had been giving it a go myself, but no joy.
