Support » Fixing WordPress » CSS Problem

  • Okay, this is driving me nuts.. and, basically, I’m being told it can’t be done in CSS. 🙁
    My main site is at It looks okay, because the #content is longer than the #menu. However, click on any single post title to get a single post. Now the #menu is longer than the #content and I can’t get the black box from #content to go down to the end of the page to wrap around the menu so it doesn’t look stupid. I think it has to do with the #menu being position: absolute, but I can’t get it to go there any other way.
    My CSS is at
    Is there ANY way to fix this?

  • Thank you, Root. 🙂 I’ll take a look. I hope it fixes my issue! I did see a page (listless) with a long menu and the content stretching so maybe this is it! (dares to hope) 😉

    Yes this is pretty basic CSS float positioning but it can be difficult to get your head around when you are starting out. With a decent template you will be fine.

    Well, it LOOKED like what I could use, but it’s giving me a headache. 😉
    I don’t want a column border on the menu…. and the border I put around the #rap seems to be overwritten with the background color until I scroll the page. Very strange. I’ll keep working on it. 😛
    Ye gods, trying to merge my html and the template html as well as trying to merge the css is enough to make a person cry.

    Still have the disappearing border problem.. until I scroll the screen, that is. But only in Mozilla… any ideas?

    I don’t see anything disappearing – using FF.9.3 – where should I be looking in particular ?

    I see the #rap bordering #body all the way around..

    Sorry. try here, podz. I’m not working on the site directly since I didn’t want to break anything.

    hmm…very odd
    In the css is this :
    #hmenu {
    margin: 0;
    padding 0;
    Does the missing : after padding affect things at all ?

    That must be causing havoc. I am fixing it now.

    Fixed and committed to Gemini. Thanks.

    Okay, I’ve sinced moved it live, having decided that the niggling little border thing was better than the menu that extended beyond the bottom of the content. Main page is and the css is at
    Thanks for any tips on the border deal… it may just be a Firefox thing, but I’d really like to fix it if at all possible.

    Yes its a FF rendering bug. Incurable AFAIK. Better in later releases. (slightly)
