Support » Themes and Templates » Problem with Pop-up comments & header graphic

  • I still don’t know how to align the header graphic to the right side so I need some instruction here.
    Also, when a comment is posted instead of the comment showing in the pop-up box the main blog page itself is displayed (all squashed up of course). Then if you exit the comments, then click them again you can see the comments as they’re meant to be seen. What on earth is going on?

    Thanks in advance.

    Header graphic.
    The best thing you can do is decide what width (in pixels) you want your blog to be, then create a graphic specifically for that.
    I’m not sure what CSS you are using, but you will experience the footer problem soon – it’s hiding behind your menu and will creep up the page for short posts viewed singly.

    Your WP is version 1.2.1, right?
    In bottom portion of your wp-comments-post.php replace
    $location = get_permalink($comment_post_ID);
    with this one (taken from the original 1.2)
    $location = (empty($_POST['redirect_to'])) ? $_SERVER["HTTP_REFERER"] : $_POST['redirect_to'];

    What a disappointment about the graphic. I use the 800 x 600 resolution because when it’s any higher it just doesn’t look right to me and the text gets a bit small for my eyes. I do know that a lot of people do use it, however, so my graphic is not going to be where it should be for them. I guess I can live with that.
    What footer problem? The CSS I’m using is just the original download with color and font modifications and of course the header graphic. For the footer I removed the bars of color – it’s now just white. The credit is in red. If creeping up is a problem what’s the right way to fix it?
    alphaoide, I typed that line in and wound up gettng an error message that says: Error, please type a comment after I had typed a comment. I think my file was corrupt (it wasn’t lining up right in Word Pad, etc.) so I just wound up copying the wp-comments-post.php file from another blog that I’ve been running for a few months and now it’s working just fine.

    I use 1024*768, and your page filled the screen.
    #rap {
    margin: 0 auto;
    border: solid #000 1px;
    background: white;
    If you get a scrollbar, drop the 800 slightly.
    Alternatively, install the Gemini Template. The footer behaves, and it’s easy to use too.

    The page does fill the screen at higher resolutions. It’s the stinkin’ peppers scooting away from the far right side that’s bugging me.
    I’m new to CSS so anything aside from minor changes throws me for a loop. On my original blog ( I just wound up making a graphic the same size as the header box on the original template and then changing colors and the like. I may wind up doing something like that again if it comes down to it.
