• Hey, so I just started wordpress and php just over a week ago. My site went up today but I still consider the template rough. Problems Im having are past & previous post links floating. Titles off position. Div padding, Links are not appearing in order, style sheet no loading as fast as I would like.. so on and so on.

    I could use some help and fresh ideas. Take a look and let me know what you think.

    fixing those errors will go a long way to helping things load faster and might even help with some of your positioning issues…

    fix those first, then attack the .css file

    Thanks, fixed a lot of problems. Still have some that im not sure how to adjust. My next big problem is the content in pages, blog, and single post all seem to vary a bit in size and spacing. Im not exactly sure what lines in my CSS to change and what to leave alone. Is there any reason for this?

    what specifically (give a link and a line or lines to compare) are you looking to change? basically you’ll be looking for h1, h2, h3, p, and some other tags like that. but if you tell me specifically what you’re looking at that you don’t like, i might be able to help easier.

    edit – i also noticed that you still have 14 errors that might be causing issues for you, like the <center> tag and a few other things. some of them don’t really affect the layout of the site, but some could. it’s best to make sure you clean everything up…

    For instance the line spacing on my page’s (http://joyhog.com) is different to those on my posts (http://joyhog.com/2006/07/09/the-devil-wears-prada/) and even a slight difference to my archives (http://joyhog.com/category/dvd/)

    I notice it on both Mac Safari and Firefox.

    As for the errors, how should I replace things like <center> and valign=”” tags.
    aligh=center in the Div tag? I havnt found a solution to fixing the valign.

    There is nothing for valign except within actual table cells… you don’t valign div’s.

    For the centering thing, instead of <p><center> try using <div align="center"><p> and then end that with </p></div> – this is provided you’re talking about one-time or occassional situations. If it’s something consistent, then you would just use the CSS file with text-align:center; for the div you’re wanting centered text in… but again, the CSS is for EVERYTHING and the former way is just for one-time instances… not site-wide.

    I’ve got to run right now – but basically you’re talking about line-height and divs with getting all the CSS to match up. Let me know how you do and I’ll be back in a few hours if I can… (or maybe someone else can jump in here)

    for valign, try:

    The vertical-align property sets the vertical alignment of an element.

    Inherited: No
    vertical-align: bottom
