[resolved] Page Cuts Off Unexpectedly in IE (8 posts)

    Don't know why, but the page unexpectedly gets cut off in IE, immediately before the reply button. Firefox, however, is fine.


    My single.php file can be viewed here:


    EDIT: Oddly, when I clicked on the header link via http://wordpress.theicono.com ('Hong Kong Phooey'), the page displayed perfectly...until I hovered over the categories. This makes little sense x_X

    It may be that your theme, it would appear, is adding a <p> tag before the comment body is inserted (which includes another <p> automatically).

    Your source code is:

    <p class="actualcomment"><p>Wow! Brilliant website! I really like it.</p></p>

    Notice the double Ps ? That is a couple of your validation erros.

    I removed the <p class="actualcomment"> and made it a <div class="actualcomment"> and now it validates with only one error, which I highly doubt is causing the problem.

    (Sidenote: On that note, there a way to define cols without overriding my pixel width that's defined in the CSS?)

    Thank you for the response, though. I thought I was a goner!

    Yea - didn't fix the problem ... interestingly in IE I notice that when you page is loading (which it does slowly on this connection), everything loaded correctly and then jerked and disappeared as your sidebar was loaded competely ...

    Are you sure all your divisions are closed in the "post" area ? I had trouble counting them.

    I think it's in the sidebar. I tried removing the sidebar completely and it suddenly works perfectly. Have NO idea why x_X

    Maybe it has something to do with the category list template tag and using rollover links. I'm still thoroughly confused.

    At this point, I might just rewrite the entire sidebar.

    Okay, I give up. I've redone the sidebar and it's still happening.

    edit: nobody? This has been up for 5 days.

    Okay, I removed the a:hover { background } property and it seems to work. If anyone knows what was happening, I'd appreciate a response, but I'm going to mark this 'resolved'.

    EDIT: Appreciate the response, doodlebee, but that wasn't it. ;( At this point, I'm just gonna' say it's either an IE glitch or something wrong with my plugins/WP install.

    You have a couple of css validation errors there.

    Don't know if that'll help, though.
