[Resolved] Alignment Issue

  • My guess is that it has something to do with the size of the image you included. Try making the image smaller and see what happens.

    I reduced it to 15×10 and still no luck.

    I have the fixes posted on my test blog, don’t mind the box at top. That’s just for an example for someone else..

    View this once in IE and FF at sametime.. =)

    Also, I changed my background and footer imagery. But the fixes will work for you!! =) Don’t believe me, read the comments… lmao!

    The first problem I encountered was that even after chmoding to 777 the control panel would not let me save. So I figured I’d just take header.php and edit it in Dreamweaver. Now I’m not seeing the specific lines of code you referred to.
    I understand that this problem exists regardless of which theme I use. Should I not be editing in /wp-content/themes/default or might I have a more recent version?

    Ok, I was able to find a work around and I edited header.php, footer.php, but I can’t find the specific lines in stylesheet.css. Also, the changes that I did make had no affect.

    What have you done specifically..? Oh nevermind, I’ll send you a copy of the corrected files in a zip format…just unzip it and upload over the ones you have now.. lol. Unless you modified all your files? But either way…

    In Blog Control Panel => Presentation => Themes => Theme Editor
    Click on the Stylesheet file link.

    Goto: Line 211, Or go to this section of it rather, it’s the same place: /* Begin Structure */

    Replace:
    body {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    }

    With:
    body {
    margin: 0 0 20px 0;
    padding: 0;
    }

    And this:


    In Blog Control Panel => Presentation => Themes => Theme Editor
    Click on the Stylesheet file link.

    Goto: Line 456, Or go to this section of it rather, it’s the same place: #sidebar #searchform #s{

    Replace this:
    #sidebar #searchform #s {
    width: 115px;
    padding: 2px;
    }

    With this:
    #sidebar #searchform #s {
    width: 108px;
    padding: 2px;
    }

    P.S. Where is a link to your blog? I’d like to see it once…thx.. =)

    Download this, unzip it and reupload the files to the places they suppposed to go: all within that theme’s folder/ like before when ya did it..

    I’m very sorry to say that it didn’t work. I uploaded both files to /wp-content/themes/default and seeing that I did overwrite the existing files. Am I working on the wrong directory? I know the theme I’ve chosen is default.

    rick2006, you’re probably doing something wrong, because these fixes DO work. =) Just view my test101 blog in both IE and FF once.. =) I’m going to fix some extra crap at the test101 blog once, like get rid of that box at top..then zip all them files into a rar file and upload it for download once..

    spencerp

    I admit that I could be doing something wrong but you’ve made it simple enough for a child to do it. If I’ve taken the 2 files you gave me and uploaded them into the /themes/default folder what part of that did I screw up?

    It’s ok rick2006, don’t get too upset over it. Just don’t use dreamweaver or whatever while doing this stuff, saying this just incase.. But, I have posted the fixes in the post at my test101 blog, you can see what’s there and maybe go from there. =)

    If you have done anything else to this theme, you might wanna change it back till you get this issue resolved..then put that other stuff back.. =)

    Now that I’ve deleted the post the alignment is fine. So I guess I can have WordPress, I just can’t use it.

    spencerp, you’ve really been a great help through all this and I really do appreciate you taking as much as you have.
    Thank you!

    No problem rick2006.. =) If you’re still having problems or issues, please drop another reply then ok. =)

    I’m so displeased with this software. I understand it’s free but how much aggravation should be involved with something this basic?

    Alignment issue, again. Goes away when I post a 2 paragraph blog. I’ve tried the fix files, spent hours perusing documentation. This really appears to be a very fundemental issue which should have been overcome by now.
