Support » Themes and Templates » Content “shifts” when clicking between blog and pages

  • Resolved webhound


    I’m getting a site set up at Gowin Photography. I’m using the Ambiru Dark 1.5 theme (slightly hacked). When I view any of the pages, the site works fine. When I view the blog (which is listed as “Portfolio” in the links), the page shifts 8 pixels to the left.

    I’ve tried applying some other themes and observe the same shifting behavior with K2, LivingOS Alpha 1, and KKP Light 0.5. The shifting does not occur with the WP Default 1.5, Softened Cells V2, or Spring 0.3beta templates.

    Any ideas?

  • Just a wild guess – since the link you gave goes nowhere.

    Isn’t it because some pages are shorter than others and on the shorter pages there is no vertical scrollbar? They shift to the right, while the longer ones seem to shift to the left 🙂

    Link–my bad!

    Here’s the correct address:

    Thta’s exactly what moshu said. Your content jumps to the left because some pages have more content than others. When ther’es more content, the scrollbar appears, and there’s a shift of the page to the left.

    Add this to your CSS:

    html {

    That’ll put a permanent scrollbar on all of your pages, and the shift will go away.

    Brilliant–that did the trick.

    On a technical note, I added semicolons (;) at the end of each line in doodlebee’s code sample above. Just mentioning it in case others stumble onto this.


    whoops! Brainfart there – thanks!
