Support » Fixing WordPress » Internet Explorer Error – Comments Float Right

  • I am having a terrible time trying to figure out why the comment window on my posts floats to the right in Internet Explorer. I have combed through my style sheet, all my code, run a browser compatibility test on all of my PHP pages, and cannot for the life of me figure out what is going on.

    An example of the page can be found here:

    In Firefox, it looks fine. I deployed a revised version of my theme about a month ago, and everything seemed fine. Since then, I have only looked at the site in IE once or twice, so I really don’t know when it all changed. Any thoughts or help would be greatly appreciated!

  • I’m looking at it in IE7 and FF3 and don’t notice anything different, so am not sure what you are seeing.

    Well, I found part of the problem by removing a “Contained Float Fix” bit from the style sheet:

    .post
    {
    display:none
    display: block;
    overflow:hidden;
    width:98%;
    }

    But when I do that the “responses to” the post line now shows up to the center of the page between the navigation (older / newer posts)
    Any idea how to correct that?

    Well, my work around was just that — a temporary work around. I have re-enabled the code, because it was creating a situation where I was using an un-defined class. Thus, can some one give me some guidance on how I fix this problem? In Firefox everything looks fine, in IE, the comments float right (beginning at about the middle of the screen.

    Here is a link to an example:

    I am pulling my hair out trying to figure this one out.

    You have LOTS of code errors (especially in your text widgets), but those most likely to cause a section of your site to become displaced are unclosed/improperly nested div tags. Since there are so many errors to wade through, search this error report for end tag for “div” omitted and at least fix these errors.
