  • I’m sorry if this has been repeated, but I have had no luck looking for something similar. My header div is set to have a certain background colour. The colour shows up perfectly in IE; Ironically, it is in Mozilla where I’m getting a line of white. Any ideas?

    Adding this may help:
    to your h1 statement ?

    With regard to your question, I don’t know where to start. The base CSS file has a credit on it:
    You’re following in the footsteps of someone who obviousley does not have a clue, either. There’s just no way you’re going to be able to do anything with that mess you’re working from.
    The default WordPress CSS file was put together by Dave Shea, a world renowned designer– and there are other style sheet templates, such as those that Root has developed, that will get you further, and faster toward something that works, than down the drain you’re heading now.

    And, no– not even putting
    to your h1 statement .

    Odd… it works here in the FF devbar…..

    Yes, I know.

    So.. In other words, I should use only templates made by prominent wordpress-ers (if there’s such a word) as a base for development? Thank you SO much.
    I’ll look at the CSS and try to figure it out. Hmm.. What’s the FF devbar?

    @ pvican – I hope you do not feel you have had a bit of a rough ride here. Folks are trying to help and a couple of guys have pitched in here who do know a lot about this subject. It is an exceptionally difficult task for any of us to talk you step by step through a recovery from where you are now. But what I can tell you is even if you do fix up the h1 which isnt difficult that you have a lot of problems to come.
    The template you are using is very badly fractured in a lot of respects,
    and is going to give you no end of problems in a lot of browsers. You (and possibly we) are going to become engaged in endless positioning fire fighting. I have spent some time reading some of your blog. You will find a very warm and supportive community here. You have been given a couple of urls here which could really help. If you get stuck do post again. Best Wishes. Root.

    It renders correctly in IE because IE is ignoring something that Mozilla/Firefox and Opera do not. If you really want to fix the problem, start by trying to isolate it. Place /* and */ around CSS properties (from body { to }) on each tag/class/ID until the problem goes away.

    @root- I guess I was rather abrasive in that last post; Yes, I am aware of the nature of the community, being here for sometime (asking for help, more likely than not! ^.^”) I guess I bristled when I was told I spent the past few days wasting my time.
    But really, what is the FF devbar? I am a MSN Explorer user (for convinience), but have Mozilla installed to try ensure I can attain cross-browser functionality.

    @ willnea I don’t like the colors much 🙂 A really nice piece of work which hopefully will encourage our friend pvicnan here. 🙂

    Hmm.. That’s almost the Gemini CSS isn’t it? Well, a similar problem occured as when I tired Gemini; My site more or less broke! *sheepish* I must have done something to break all the positioning..
    Well, I’ll look at it some time, when I’m not supposed to be finishing a pile of homework for sch the next day.. ^.^” Alas.. being a student..

    pvicnan. When you get through your homework you are going to have to fess up. Have you been fiddling with the layout? Just a bit ? If you refit Gemini we can help if it breaks. 🙂

    Well.. I didn’t touch the layout, but I think I severely butchered my index.php

    Ahhhhhhhhh. 🙂
