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.

    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, http://inform.symsysit.com/?tag=wordpress

    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.

    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, ul.post-meta li {display: inline;}

    Try this instead:

    ul.post-meta 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, http://www.floody82.com/

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

    Regards
