[resolved] Gap in Content Posts & Background (15 posts)

    I have errors in how the posts/content is positioned. I originally added a div wrapping the left side which worked, but only on the homepage - which didn't make sense.

    I removed that div thinking that was my error but I still can't get the content & background to be at the top, no matter what kind of width or float I add to my sidebars and image or content, no combination seems to work. In 2 days I haven't been able to resolve this! PLEASE, PLEASE HELP. I am trying but I am also pulling my hair out and no one likes a bald woman!

    Is it that messed up that you don't know where to start with your reply?

    No - just in a different time zone to you.

    Get rid of the clear:both; on .entry-title. and width:100%; on div#container.

    I know, I was stalking you earlier ;)

    Pardon my impatience. I am unemployed and excited and anxious to complete this but also beyond challenged and overwhelmed. I CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH.

    THIS ONLY WORKS on my homepage. The only difference in the other template is that I added an additional sidebar that just references another photo. The image settings are the same for both photos.

    I take that back. I just realized I had and extra DIV from when I deleted the LEFT div I added. When I removed that it reverts to falling under the photo again - correct 'x' position but not correct 'y' position.

    WHAT I DON'T UNDERSTAND IS THAT IF MY SIDEBAR HAS A WIDTH AND A FLOAT" LEFT, THEN HOW DOES THE CONTENT NOT FLOAT LEFT? ANY SPACE TO THE RIGHT OF THAT PHOTO SHOULD BE 'CLIPPED' SO THAT THE COPY AND WHT BACKGROUND CAN MOVE UP.

    You still need to get rid of the clear:both; on .entry-title. You do need to wrap the two sidebars inside a single containing div and float that left.

    Oh. So I was right to have my left div to begin with. I thought that was what was making it not work on the other templates. This works with every page except this one, http://myownway.com/blog/?page_id=8, which should be the same as the homepage...

    THIS IS WHERE my confusion comes in about how this can work with other ID's ;( but that's conditional tags and I am hoping you can confirm my question on that next ;) MANY, MANY, MANY, THANKS.

    Are you using is_home() and/or is_front_page() on your home page template (index.php)? If so, try using is_page('8') in page.php.

    I actually don't see either exact conditional tag anywhere.

    This is the index.php

    <?php get_header() ?>
    
    	<div id="container">
    
    <?php get_sidebar() ?>
    
    		<div id="content">
    
    <?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post() ?>
    			<div id="post-<?php the_ID() ?>" <?php if (function_exists(post_class)) { post_class(); } else { sandbox_post_class(); } ?>>
    				<h2 class="entry-title"><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" title="<?php printf(__('Permalink to %s', 'sandbox'), wp_specialchars(get_the_title(), 1)) ?>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_title() ?></a></h2>
    				<div class="top-meta">
                    	<small class="metadata">
                        	<span class="comments-link"><?php comments_popup_link('0', '1', '%', 'commentslink', 'Closed'); ?></span>
                            <span class="meta-sep">|</span>
                        	<span class="chronodata"><?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?></span>
                            <span class="meta-sep">|</span>
                            <span class="cat-links"><?php printf(__('Posted in %s', 'sandbox'), get_the_category_list(', ')) ?></span>
        <?php edit_post_link(__('Edit', 'sandbox'), "\t\t\t\t\t<span class=\"meta-sep\">|</span><span class=\"edit-link\">", "</span>\n"); ?>
    
                         </small>
    				</div>
    				<div class="entry-content">
    <?php the_content(''.__('Read More <span class="meta-nav">&raquo;</span>', 'sandbox').''); ?>
    
    				<?php wp_link_pages('before=<div class="page-link">' .__('Pages:', 'sandbox') . '&after=</div>') ?>
    				<span class="clear"></span>
    				</div>
                    <div class="bottom-meta">
                    	<small class="metadata"><?php the_tags(__('<span class="tag-links">Tagged in: ', 'sandbox'), ", ", "</span>\n") ?></small>
                    </div>
    			</div><!-- .post -->
    
    <?php comments_template() ?>
    <?php endwhile ?>
    
    			<div id="nav-below" class="navigation">
    				<div class="nav-previous"><?php next_posts_link(__('<span class="meta-nav">&laquo;</span> Older posts', 'sandbox')) ?></div>
    				<div class="nav-next"><?php previous_posts_link(__('Newer posts <span class="meta-nav">&raquo;</span>', 'sandbox')) ?></div>
    				<span class="clear" />
    			</div>
    
    		</div><!-- #content -->
    	</div><!-- #container -->
    
    <?php get_footer() ?>

    and this is the page.php

    <?php get_header() ?>
    
    	<div id="container">
    
    <?php include ('sidebar2.php'); ?>
    
    		<div id="content">
    
    <?php the_post() ?>
    			<div id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>" <?php if (function_exists(post_class)) { post_class(); } else { sandbox_post_class(); } ?>>
    				<h1 class="entry-title"><?php the_title(); ?><?php edit_post_link(__('Edit', 'sandbox'),'<span class="edit-page-link">','</span>') ?></h1>
    
    				<div class="entry-content">
    <?php the_content() ?>
    
    <?php wp_link_pages("\t\t\t\t\t<div class='page-link'>".__('Pages: ', 'sandbox'), "</div>\n", 'number'); ?>
    
    				</div>
    			</div><!-- .post -->
    		</div><!-- #content -->
    	</div><!-- #container -->
    <?php get_footer() ?>

    In index.php, you're using sidebar.php. In page.php, you're using sidebar2.php. So is http://myownway.com/blog/?page_id=8 assigned to a custom page template that uses sidebar.php?

    I will check out your link above. I am sure it is yet another missing piece of my puzzle.

    I actually am questioning what you ask above in my other post "How to Access Dynamic Page Id's". Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. I shall return and I hope you do as well! If not SLEEP TIGHT.
