Support » Themes and Templates » Footer for Kubrick Theme not aligned after upgrade to WP 2.0

  • I just upgraded last night to WordPress 2.0, and everything seems to have gone just fine except for the fact that my footer no longer aligns properly to the rest of the page. Can someone tell me why this might happen, and/or where I can make changes to correct it? I’d really appreciate the help. I didn’t have this problem prior to the upgrade.

  • Huh! dmetzcher – I thought it was just me!
    I have 3 WP 2.0 blogs all with the same problem in firefox.
    Interesting thing – looks ok in IE6!
    Will keep looking for the fix ๐Ÿ™

    My site –

    I had posted some fixes on my Test Blog

    View that blog once in both IE and FF =)


    P.S. I just took all the fixes that Octa and I had done from this post, and added them all within one post on that test blog. =) Original forum post here:

    Hey Spencerp – It works for me ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
    me love you long time!

    Awesome! =) Yeah, trying to please IE is like trying to please the bitch gf, wife or even ex wife, it’s just not possible 99.9999% of the time… LOL!!! Nah..jk. It’s not that bad really….lmao!


    Hi Tack,

    Yeah, I didn’t notice it before I posted the question, but it looks fine in Safari, too. Just Firefox has the problem for me. I see that you have already corrected it and blogged about it, so I’m on my way to fix it now. Was this just Firefox 1.5? I just upgraded a few weeks ago, and think that I would have noticed if 1.0 caused the same problem. When I first set things up, I was making all sorts of edits, so it’s pretty sad if I managed to miss that the footer was a bit off. Anyway, I’m off to fix it now.

    heh heh Dmetzcher, we were both in the same boat – heaps of edits before noticing it and then – “was this my fault?” . ๐Ÿ˜€
    Not sure if its in Firefox before 1.5 – I upgraded both at the same time more or less.

    I have FF 1.5 and IE6 and tried these fixes on WP version 1.5.2 and 2.0 RC3 which is basically version 2.0. And it was working just fine for me.. =) I’m glad to see they are working for you guys. =)


    The edits fixed it for me too, but the second of the two edits for the 1px shift problem caused a problem in the header. My guess is that it’s because I have some ads up there, so I just took that part of the fix out, and everything worked.

    This part worked:

    #footer{background:url("< ?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory'); ?>/images/kubrickfooter.jpgโ€?) no-repeat bottom; border: none;}

    #footer{background:url("< ?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory'); ?>/images/kubrickfooter.jpgโ€?) no-repeat bottom left; border: none; }
    #footer { /margin-left: 2px; }

    This part caused the issue with the header, so I left it out:

    #header { margin: 0 !important; margin: 0 0 0 1px; padding: 1px; height: 198px; width: 758px; }

    #header { margin: 0 !important; margin: 0 0 0 2px; padding: 1px; height: 198px; width: 758px; }

    dmetzcher, oh ok. Yeah, like I said, I did these fixes on an “unmolested” Kubrick theme. Meaning nothing special done to it or added to it, but maybe some imagery changes. =) But, atleast you have it working right anyway, with the ads above. =)

    And thanks for sharing your reply with what code changes do work with ads above the header. =) If someone else out there happens to do the same stuff as you did…they’ll still be able to have it looking good in both IE and FF. =)
