[resolved] Problem with "Subtle" theme, broken footer (11 posts)

    I am using the "subtle" theme ( http://blog.gluedideas.com/ ) and am having an inconsistant but substantial problem with the occasional post.

    I am having a problem figuring out why my template is breaking and pushing the footer to the top on these two pages:

    http://anicecuppa.net/
    http://fitfare.net/

    Note that it doesnt happen on the single post pages except as mentioned below.

    It does happen on one category page (http://fitfare.net/category/international-fare/african/) but not the others (even if its a child cat) i.e: http://fitfare.net/category/announcements/ (one difference is no ads but I have ads on other pages that do not break)

    Archive pages render fine

    the single post page for one of the posts (but not others) is messed up in another way... the sidebar is fractured all over the bottom

    http://anicecuppa.net/2007/02/06/some-buzz-in-your-donuts/

    Plenty of the other blogs in the network (http://wellfed.net/) function fine. I have compared the files between functioning blogs and the ones above and see no difference. I also have been looking at recent posts in HTML and do not see how they are causing the failure.

    I hope you all have experience busting this particular issue.

    Thanks ahead of time

    With a page that takes forever to load very few people have got the patience to wait. I would hazard a guess it is damaging your stats. It is certainly reducing the chance of expeditious assistance in the forum.

    yes, this is PART of the problem, not the problem. one follows the other (note - I do not have control over choice of content, images, or theme .. I just have to fix it)

    Looks okay in Firefox 2.0.0.1 - all the above links.
    Loads in good time as well.

    Have you fixed it?

    sburge: indeed, thanks for asking! I FINALLY fixed it late today and then realized that indeed there IS a world outside my computer :-/.. have not had a chance to update here.

    Somehow there was a change to the home.php ... there was a missing /div and I do not understand how it could get spontaneously corrupted like that in two related blogs at the same time..

    That would explain why I couldn't load it. I still think the page size is too large. Of course a regular viewer like the OP loads the images from cache. The *it works fine here syndrome* is the bane of web development. Glad you got fixed up anyway. :)

    root: you are so sure that you know the first thing about me and how I work. I know a few things about you by the way you write.

    Nika--do you remember where you put the /div? I have the same problem you did (http://margaretandzach.com). I've been trying to fix the problem by trial-and-error coding: namely adding a /div to different places in home.php, updating the template, and then checking the results (so the error you encounter may vary)..

    Thanks!
