    ok.

    besides taking nearly 2 mins to even start loading. (maybe a hiccup on your server) .. It seems fine, it ought to though, its a bought theme.

    Check the location of your feedburner button in FF

    Yes bought with quite a few modifications made myself. Rotating header, related comment box above the post section, RSS feed on the left side bar, about 20 odd plugins integrated too.

    Looking at the time period you probably viewed it, it was probably the regular backup schedule which causes it to load a bit slowly.

    Im using FF. The button looks fine. I use 1024 by 768 since thats what 85% of my visitors use. The feedburner button is placed via CSS. What resolution are you using?

    its not a resolution issue, its sitting on top of text.

    <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/7milesdown">Update Notifications</a>— Updates Notification, you cant read it.. you wonder what it is…

    Can I see a screenshot? It looks fine on my end… in IE and FF.

    Same here. Feedcount chicklet is sitting directly on top of the “Update Notifications” text @ 1280×1024 in Firefox AND IE.

    Good looking site though. I had no loading time issues.

    must be the resolution.

    This is the CSS Im currently using.

    #subscribe {
    
    position:absolute;
    top:290px;
    left:875px;
    width:92px;
    height:32px;
    margin:4px 4px 3px 4px;

    It looks fine at 1024 x 768 which according to my stats about 76% of my regular visitors use.

    Any suggestions to get it working for more sizes?

    Same problem with the feedburner button for me.

    My specs: OS: Ubuntu, Browser: Firefox, Res: 1680×1050

    man, really strange. I cant figure out how to make the CSS work for multiple browser sizes.

    Linux-SuSE-10.2/KDE/Firefox-2.0/1024*768 : all loads fast and looks fine. Nice design by the way.

    You’re using left:875px; in your absolute positioning, which is 875 pixels from the left side of the screen. Therefore, the position of the feedcount chicklet will be 875 pixels from the left side of the screen regardless of your visitor’s resolution.

    Try moving the chicklet code to your RSS div and use float: right;

    <div class="rss">
    <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/7milesdown"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~fc/7milesdown?bg=eeeeee&amp;fg=000000&amp;anim=0" height="26" width="88" style="border:0" alt="" /></a>
        	<h3><a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/7milesdown">Update Notifications</a></h3>
