    Site is just not working right in Firefox. I recently changed to a new theme and love it, it works fine in IE and Chrome, not sure about Safari, but Firefox is all messed up and I’m not anywhere near competent enough to see why.
    Any suggestions or help?

  • and how does it looks in IE and Chrome? could you show us screenshot? some people doesn’t hav windows, but also want to help 🙂

    Thanks so much for the response.
    Here is the screenshot

    Get the site valid first. Those
    <li>,<p> and <div> errors are especially important in your case.


    Thanks for the reply,

    I have NO idea how to do this. 🙂 maybe you could put in simple terms for me.

    “Line 73, Column 57: document type does not allow element “li” here; missing one of “ul”, “ol”, “menu”, “dir” start-tag .
    â€Ķe_item page-item-2 current_page_item”><a href=”” title=”Welc
    The mentioned element is not allowed to appear in the context in which you’ve placed it; the other mentioned elements are the only ones that are both allowed there and can contain the element mentioned. This might mean that you need a containing element, or possibly that you’ve forgotten to close a previous element.

    One possible cause for this message is that you have attempted to put a block-level element (such as “<p>” or “<table>”) inside an inline element (such as ““, “<span>”, or “<font>”).”

    Looks like you’ve done some work on it. In fact it looks like you fixed the question you just asked about. Good for you. Let’s get the rest of it.

    Ok. Go back to the validator. I see the following line: Line 73, Column 16: literal is missing closing delimiter . Click on the ’73’. It should take you to line 73 of your generated html (this likely has no connection to the line numbers in any of your PHP code). What I see there is this: <li class="page_item>. Notice how there is an open quote before page_item but no close quote? Fixing that will fix at least one other error, from the look of it.

    The ‘there is no attribute’ errors may not be fixable. Don’t worry about them right now.

    The ‘end tag for “br” omitted’ means that should be .

    This one– end tag for element “div” which is not open– might go away with some of the other fixes. If not it means that you have a </div> but no <div>. That is, you are closing a division that isn’t open. Either you need to add an opening tag or remove the closing. I don’t know which. You’ll need to dig around and figure that out.

    Looks like there is a big block of uncommented text in your css file (If you would like… ) and it looks like FF is only reading up to that block and no further. Get that text commented and see what happens.

    Thank you for the reply I can’t fix this today, but I will let you know how it works out! I appreciate your assistance trial and error takes sooooooo long sometimes with this stuff!

    I screwed something up. One of the lines in my previous post should be :

    The ‘end tag for “br” omitted’ means that <br>should be <br/>.

    Well I think I’ve got it validated, but it still isn’t looking good in Firefox. Any suggestions?

    That is weird. All I can say right now is poke around and see what you can find. You are loading a lot of plugins. Try disabling them and see what happens. One of them might be breaking something. If you still have this problem with all of the plugins disabled, at least we’ve narrowed the search.

    Your plugin directories are all browseable by the way. Good for me and the trying-to-help. Bad for you, long term.

    Here is the problem:

    #BlogTitle h1 /*{...
    If you would like to use an image logo in the header versus text:
    1. Comment out the section above and uncomment the section below
    2. Create your logo (I recommend 300px Width x 25px Height, Maximum 500px Width x 125px Height)
    3. Swap the image location with your logo image below
    4. Adjust your Width and Height Below accordingly
    5. Oh... you lose the ability to link to the homepage by clicking the logo :-(
    #BlogTitle h1 {...

    Notice that big uncommented block test? The same one I mentioned five comments ago? I paste that into my css, it breaks. I remove it, the css works.

    Also, why did you only comment the curly braces of #BlogTitle h1 rather than the whole thing?

    Thank you!
    That did it. I commented out the wrong area, maybe I should have listened to you 5 comments ago! haha. This was really frustrating me I appreciate all your help
