Support » Themes and Templates » Content background issues between Firefox and IE

  • This is my first attempt at building a theme, for which I have used the default and one other as a rough ‘guide’ template, to get used to the css class and ID structures.
    I managed to build it with little problem using IE7 and XAMPP on my home PC. However, at university (where I use both IE6 and Firefox) I noticed several discrepencies in the layout. Fortunately all but one has now been resolved.

    My problem lies in the fact I’m using a double border with nested divs. In Firefox, text further down the page ‘overflows’ the main content. I’m unsure exactly why this is.

    Any ideas?

  • This is a float positioning scheme with no clearer div. Result: B0rkage.

    Did you see your single post in FF? – completely missing bg.

    Thanks Moshu, well spotted… 🙂 There seems to be a lot of problems associated with trying to incorporate multiple backgrounds.
    To compensate (temporarily) I’ve added an extra div to call up the second background in single.php
    This has also given me an idea for a possible solution. If I write more div classes and ID’s in the style sheet, I should be able to call these in single.php and archives, and hence widen the post text area, etc. However, when I tried another version of #content (which I called #contentpost) with a wider area (650px instead of 490px in the homepage, together with a 20px padding.) the change seemed to have no effect.

    This is giving me a lot to think about. A simple idea is turning into quite a challenge.

    Looks like it’s back to the XAMPP drawing board.

    I’d also like to design a theme that has two columns either side, with the posts down the middle. That’ll be the next project I think. 😀


    More divs are not going to be the answer. Believe me.

    OK… Can you give me any hints for a better solution?
