Support » Fixing WordPress » Category Post Count is misaligned

  • When using the deColor theme, I turn on “Show post counts” in the widget settings it puts the Post count on the next line under the Category. I put this in the Themes section but perhaps that was the wrong place.

    Life & Site

    Why is it doing that and how do I fix it? I’ve been using WP on and off over 2 years and it’s stuff like this I’ve never bothered getting help for. So if anyone can save me from giving up on WP again that would be much appreciated. I checked the authors website, but it was french or something 🙁

    Hi FL00DY,

    if you want design help, you really need to provide a link to your blog, please. NO images, and no psuedo-design code.

    Also, it’s not necessary to double post. Just bump the original after a decent amount of time. Click on the word “member” under your forum namer “FL00DY” and you can find all your own posts, should you lose track of them.




    actually i found you, i think.

    youre going to need to make that happen, so we can see it in action.

    ahh yeah sorry bout the double post. I guess I wasn’t really ready to share the blog just yet 🙂 Yeah that’s mine, and I’ve just put the problem back.

    I found this the other night and gave it a try but it just kept giving me syntax errors,

    Any help would appreciated, not sure if this kinda problem belongs in Troubleshooting or Themes cause I’ve noticed other themes having the same problem.

    bumpy bump

    It’s due to display: block; in your theme’s style.css:

    .box-right li a {
    	display: block;
    	margin: 0px;
    	padding: 5px;
    	border-bottom: 1px solid #dedede;
    	text-decoration: none;

    display: block; makes inline things (like your category links) display on a line by themselves away from the non-link category count.

    Is there a way to fix it? Can I comment it out? I just tried and it didn’t change the post count location ???

    WOO HOO I removed the entire line and now it’s the way I want.

    Thanks very much. I might actually get the hang of all this PHP coding one day 🙂

    ahhh no now all the meta stuff is on the same line 🙁

    How do I put the Site Admin, Log out, Entries RSS, etc. on it’s own lines but keep the post counts next to their categories?

    Any one ???

    I don’t see it on your page, but this may be due to display:inline; applied to your meta li. Normally li display on their own lines.

    .meta li, li {display: inline;}

    Try this instead: li {display: inline;}

    OK well I don’t have the above lines in my style.css file.

    After I fixed the Post count, all the categories and the meta stuff get put on the same line within in the sidebar,

    I’ll leave it like that. Thanks for everything so far everyone.


    Meh i’m over this I’ll just find a theme that works
