Support » Fixing WordPress » post width blowing my site up!

  • Hope someone can help with this as I’m stuck. I have a lot of people post to my blog from all over, I’ve set guidlines and all, but no matter what I do at least once per day a post is way too wide from my layout and breaks everything.

    Anyone know how I could fix that without having to yell at my bloggers all day?

    Picuters and tables are the biggest problems.

    … and without a url to your blog, no-one can help you.

    I’m putting that on a bumper sticker!

    I just need ideas around controlling post width, you don’t need to see the blog. The problem is clear, the post content is too wide. What can I do about that?

    “I have people drive my car all through the day, and at least once each day it won’t start. What’s wrong with it?”

    That is the equivalent of your question. If you want generic reasons (and solutions) we can probably spend all day covering them, but it’ll be hit or miss. So…

    Generic reason #1: Images in posts often cause this. Some solutions:

    1. You could use a max-width property for the img declaration in your stylesheet. Note that IE6 does not support this property.

    2. For the post content div you can add a property like:

    overflow: hidden;

    This would take anything sizing out over the right margin of the div and *hide it* by overlapping the other layout elements.




    I found your site. It would also be helpful if you fixed the validation errors.

    130 on the front page, alone, and they are not all being caused by the posts.

    Fwiw, im not sure what youre so afraid of sharing. Your content perhaps? I dont know why.
