Support » Themes and Templates » Hey! My Footer is in my Comments <div>!

  • So, I have recently noticed something quite peculiar happening on my blog. It seems that, if I have only one comment on any one post my footer gets all wonky.

    To be more specific, the footer gets shoved over to the right of where it should be.

    Even more specific: it seems, for some reason that is beyond me, that when there is only one comment for a post, the footer is placed into my “comment-container” div — normally it sits inside my “skinny-bottom” div — and, so, given that the “comment-container” div is already aligned farther to the left than the rest of the page, gets aligned even farther to the left than the comments div.

    I hope that all made sense. I have uploaded a few screenshots to more fully illustrate the problem. The screenshots are examples of the types of situations in question in my CSS app of choice CSSEdit.

    Normal (with zero, two or more comments):
    Ahhhhh, all nice and aligned inside “skinny-bottom”. Life is good.

    Not Normal (with one comment):
    Ouch! 1:”skinny-bottom” div

    Ouch 2: “comment-container” div

  • just a few code problems.

    Hmmmmm, well, I took care of most of the errors that the validator found. There are only two left and they have to do with list items in the footer. Still, the footer on posts with only one comment continues to be terribly positioned.

    Do you think that the remaining issues with validation have anything to do with the footer position?

    For what it’s worth, I experimented a little and discovered that if I delete thecomments.php file from the server the alignment rights itself (and, surprisingly, the comment that was there stays there, as well … how does that work? … fascinating!)

    So, the problem appears to be in my comments.php file. Now, I just have to weed through the nearly undecipherable (for me, anyway) code to, maybe, find the issue.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Both of them are in the footer…possibly
    I looked at your code otherwise and I don’t see a reason for this behavior

    Were you able to access the “.php” files? Or do you need to?

    I looked at the view source for several of your pages and didn’t see a difference for that section.
    I’ll look in your theme’s comments.php and see if I see something- it shows you use depo-skinny-redo – where can I download it?

    I’ll zip it up for you and put it on my server for you to download

    You can find DePo Skinny ReDo here.

    It’s been awhile since I have looked at this thread. @samboll, did you ever figure anything out?
