[Resolved] A Long Shot – Need Serious Help With Footers.

  • Help! I broke my footers and I can’t fix them!

    Seriously, I have no idea how to style the footers. They were not registered for sidebars. Once I did that, my styling broke. I have two sets of styles going on; the original, which contains the right sizes, and the #footer-sidebar style. I have no idea how to clean this up because I know very little about code.

    Additionally, although the list-style is none, I’m still getting bullet points. Would somebody be kind enough to take a look and make some suggestions? Would be much appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Melissa

  • Hi,
    Yes, that will require some fixing. 🙂 The main point is that a lot of your styling is pointing to #footer, which is not there in the code (possibly deleted). For instance, this explains why bullet points are there… the attempt to style them is using #footer.

    Your code does, however, have #footer-sidebar1 in it. So a start would be to try using that to replace instances where you now have #footer in the CSS code.

    That’s a start, at least.

    Good luck, Dave

    hi Dave, sorry I didn’t get back to you before. Thank you for your advice. The problem was just as you said it was, missing footer in code *duh*. All fixed now, and the theme is backed up in case I want to use it again. In the end I’ve decided to go with a cleaner theme, and the footers are pretty much fine. Thanks for the suggestion, all advice is totally appreciated!
