Support » Fixing WordPress » 2.2 Upgrade Changed the Default Formatting

  • Resolved SueB


    When I upgraded to 2.1.3 using Fantastico I had no problems. I used Fantastico again to upgrade from 2.1.3 to 2.2 and the formatting of my site, when using Firefox, is a mess. It works in Explorer.

    – I’m using the default theme and the top and bottom look fine. The middle section (below the header and above the footer) shows two posts (aligned correctly) but not on the white background that used to be there.
    – Posts 3-10 are right next to the left edge of my screen.
    – The sidebar is below the posts now.

    I read Moshu’s post on another thread which had a link to a note about upgrading, I followed the instructions on that page which said:

    “pre-Version 2.2, Fantastico will use the wp-config-sample.php file to regenerate a new wp-config.php file. By doing this, two new values, DB_CHARSET and DB_COLLATE, are placed into the wp-config.php file. Those lines should be deleted from your wp-config.php if you are upgrading from a pre-Version 2.2 (like 2.0.10 or 2.1.3) to Version 2.2.1. A detailed explanation about DB_CHARSET and DB_COLLATE can be found in Editing wp-config.php.”

    I deleted the two lines in the config.php file and the blog looks exactly the same.

    Any ideas on why the formatting isn’t working?

  • I just went from 2.1.2 to 2.2.1. I use FireFox and my formatting went out the window. After reading around these posts, I did pull it up in IE and it looks fine, so it’s something to do with how FF sees things.

    Basic issue: Using a three column widgetized theme, now the first several posts are fine, but it appears when you get to the “older posts” break, the next post has wrapped up on the right, at the top of the sidebar. No left sidebar appears, until you scroll down a long way.

    I checked and do have the most recent version of the theme (3/2/2007).

    Help appreciated!

    I found my problem. Traced it to the embed code for a LiveLeak video clip. I used the generic embed code, not the code listed for blogs. Once I did it correctly, all the Firefox formatting came right back into place!

    Thanks xformed. I had two youtube videos posted and they had different codes. One had ‘param name=allowScriptAccess’ etc and that one was causing the formatting of my blog to break in Firefox and Netscape.

    When I changed it to the coding for youtube that didn’t contain those variables the clip played and the formatting worked in all 3 browsers! Yeah!!!
