Support » Themes and Templates » Footer problem (Kubrick-derived theme)

  • Resolved raoulpop



    I’ve just finished moving my entire ASP-driven site and Blogger blog to WordPress/PHP, and after a few feverish days, I was able to launch it.

    To start with, I played with the default Kubrick theme, and customized it a bit. Never touched the footer.php file, but noticed that it’s slightly off. In other words, if you follow the left and right borders down the page, all the way to the footer, you’ll see it breaks off slightly (by 1-2 pixels) as the footer.jpg file is placed in.

    By now, I’ve customized the footer.php file by adding a Creative Commons licence snippet there, but the border breaks anyway, with or without it in there.

    The footer.jpg file is 760 pixels wide, I can’t seem to find something awry in the CSS file… I’ve tried to figure out where this is happening, but I’m not quite there yet. Can you please help?

    Please look at this page to start with:, but really, it’s happening on all pages.

    Thank you!

  • No solution here, but you might be interested to know that it lines up great in Firefox. However, in IE I see the issue. So… odds are, you’ll want to do some searching for “IE CSS Hacks” to work around whatever it is that IE is doing.

    Wish I could be more helpful, but maybe that will give you a start.

    Here’s what I discovered so far:

    – doesn’t line up in my Firefox on Windows laptop (the footer.jpg is slightly off by 1-2 pixels, to the right)
    – lines up great on Safari and Camino on my iMac
    – in IE on my Windows laptop… what in the world just happened, yikes!!!

    That about sums it up. Sooo, the prolem is bigger than I thought. I was under the impression that I was dealing with just a simple 1-2 pixel problem, but in IE, it’s a HUGE problem.

    Any feedback on this is welcome! What’s the quickest way to fix it?

    i can’t describe the solution but
    there are several threads dealing with the ‘1 pixel problem in kubrick’

    which you can find by doing a search for
    pixel kubrick

    Found this post from spencerp with a possible solution:

    Am currently investigating, will see what to do, just wanted to offer a quick update on this.

    Just couldn’t get the Kubrick theme customized to my needs, so I spent the entire day yesterday designing a new template for Dignoscentia. It tests great with the latest versions of Firefox, Safari, Camino and Internet Explorer.

    Used CSS from both the Default and Classic WordPress themes, and code from both. Graphics and layout are new. Just cleaned up the CSS a little more this morning, now looks great.

    Sooo, I guess the lesson is, if you’re not happy with a theme, take the time to make your own! 🙂

    I’m releasing the Dignoscentia theme under GPL, if anyone wants it, email me and I’ll zip up the template files for you.

    Here’s the site if you want to take a look:
