Support » Themes and Templates » IE “Disappearing” Links & Footer Question

  • On my old blog,, the links all show as they’re supposed to.
    On my new blogs:
    things in the menu aren’t showing as they should in Internet Explorer. It looks as if the words are chopped in half horizontally or like they’re not there at all but if you scroll up and down or move your mouse pointer over them then they will appear.
    Both menus look fine in Firefox. Any suggestions?
    Also I’ve had no luck positioning the footer to stay at the bottom. Would it be an offense if I just removed the footer alltogether and just add a link category that says “This Site Powered by” and then add the link to WordPress?

    The odd display is caused by Internet Explorer – it’s curable.
    The footer ?
    Drop the whole thing if you want, and there is no requirement for you to keep the ‘Powered by ..’ line if you don’t want.

    I need a little help with the Holly hack. Where exactly does it go and should it look like:
    /* Hides from IE5-mac \*/
    * html #menu {height: 1%;}
    /* End hide from IE5-mac */
    Even after reading the page I’m not entirely clear on how to do this.

    Any takers? I’m just not getting exactly what to do.

    I finally emailed Big John from:
    and he was kind enough to tell me what to do, so here it is for any of you who may be experiencing the same menu problems:
    #menu ul {
    color: #ccc;
    font-weight: bold;
    list-style-type: none;
    margin: 0;
    padding-left: 3px;
    text-transform: none;
    /* \*/
    * html #menu ul {height: 1%;}
    /* */
    I just didn’t know where or exactly how to put the hack (just above) in my css. I was wrongly including it within the #menu section brackets rather than on it’s own, after the #menu ul section.
    So there you have it.
