    Fix your stray end tags and bad xml declarations in the head section. See [Invalid] Markup Validation of – W3C Markup Validator. Scroll down in the validation report to see line numbers and source code.

    hmm thanks for the link. Tried to fix up some of those end tags… still didn’t quite fix it in IE 7 but hopefully soon

    Can you post links to images of the problems, labeling the browser and perhaps annotating each image here?

    Sure, attached is a screenshot of where it’s looking wonky in IE 7/8. Not entirely sure what is causing the issue. This is pretty much the only issue with it.

    Alternatively, the site looks fine if you want to check it out live in any other good browser.

    Any thoughts?

    Well it’s obvious, if you use dev tools or firebug. They will show 404’s for script.js, jquery.min.js, jquery-1.6.2.min.js as well as the favicon.

    So you’re not loading script.js; but you only need one main jquery library, not two, so that’s a further problem. And you’re loading jquery wrong, too; it must be loaded with wp_enqueue_script. See Function Reference/wp enqueue script « WordPress Codex

    Use Firebug with Firefox, or use the developer tools in Chrome or Safari or IE.

    Thanks for the reply, but I don’t think that is the issue.

    I’ve re-added those scripts and the wp_enque_script shouldn’t really matter any more since this site was once a wordpress site, but has since been integrated into a static site for a whole different reason that I can’t really get into right now. To be honest I don’t even know if the site needs jquery.

    Thanks though.. might be getting me on the right track for these weird IE 7/8 issues. And yeah I use firebug all the time.

    I am having major issues with my site and IE7/8/9 as well.

    The site is

    The footer is all screwed up in IE and blows up the footer images to massive proportions. The Coaches tab is also supposed to be a “highlight and click” code that works fine in all other browers as does the Footer.

    IE is also pushing the Widget/Sidebar to BELOW the posts on the Blogs and Workouts category pages and single post pages.

    Every since the latest update, even Firefox has been pushing the Widgets/Sidebar down as well if the text in the posts is too long of a line. If it stays to like five words or less then everyone comes back and fits nicely together usually.

    So everything just looks horrid in IE but is also starting to go downhill in Firefox which looked fine before for all the sections and single posts.

    Bah! I’ve spent the last two days in Firebug changing this and changing that and I can’t seem to make the Sidebar/Widgets always fit to the right regardless of how much text is in the post. Currently the Blogs category page is still using the default archive.php file that doesn’t show the content but just uses excerpt and has the photo. That one looks ok.

    The Workouts category page and the Single post page I made two columns for the post itself, and changed it to show the content so it would be formatted and show everythingand the left colume is for a thumbnail and the text on the right. Then for the Sidbar to be on the right side obviously but it’s all screwy now. I’m tired of looking at code, BLAH!!! help =/

    @derrickallen, it’s rude to jump someone else’s thread; start your own topic.

    Sorry. 🙁 I made my own topic. Not sure how to delete this one.
