    I have a blog that displays wonderfully in Firefox and Internet Explorer not on new post in IE it is offset http://bassonline.com/wp/2008/06/17/florida-everglade-fishing-report/

    I have also upgraded the menu for the website and can not find the directory for the html to change the menu in WP.

    I was bleep.....bleep...bleep by another webmaster and left in the cold. Can someone please assit me and by the way please look around the blog and provide any helpful suggestions.

    I'm a novice at PHP coding, and this is my first WP site.

    Thanks a bunch!

    Howdy Mr.Bass

    First of all let me say, nice looking site but wow.. you MUST get away from tabular design. It's probably best your old webmaster left as from the looks of it, he didn't know what he was doing.

    From what I can tell you have added a width of 629px to .narrowcolumn and it should be removed since its a child of the parent TD which has a width of 601px.

    That's wrong.

    This suggestion *should*(tm) fix the side bar wonkiness I'm seeing in firefox.

    Also change your your navigation css thusly;

    .navigation {
    float:left;
    margin: 20px 0 10px 50px;
    text-align: left;
    width: 500px;
    }

    That should fix the << Older Entries bit. I'm seeing that is off.

    So as instructions; Go to your wordpress admin area, go into the Design area, go to the theme editor and click on your stylesheet to edit it.

    scroll down a bit until you find .narrowcolumn;

    .narrowcolumn {
    width: 629px;
    position: relative;
    left: -25px;
    }

    Remove the width: 629px; line. Save and reload your page to make sure that had the desired results. (hard for me to test this in IE but it works correctly in firefox once that is adjusted.)

    Then search for .navigation in the same file and make the changes I suggested above.

    Further more I would change the .post class.

    Remove the width entirely
    and add margin-left: 40px;

    Width's are being enforced everywhere and its not necessary.

    OH dear god..

    That whole left nav is an image map?!

    Yep Okay I have changed my opinion.. I think you'd be better served scrapping the whole thing and redesigning from the ground up.

    Let me know if my smattering of instructions above works for you.. it works for me but these things can be finicky..
