    Hey everyone, my first post here :P.

    Here is the poblem with my template.
    Im not very good with CSS or PHP yet so my site is probably very bad in terms of coding ( it doesnt validate ) and i guess something is causing my footer to be good on Opera and IE but it goes exageratedly to the right on firefox.

    Heres the address: http://paperless.skarz.co.uk/place

    Ill be very glad to get some help. Thanks

    For starters, you have three page headers.

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

    <head profile="http://gmpg.org/xfn/11">

    The above appears three times throughout the page the last one is at the beginning of your footer, the problem you mentioned.
    I would run through and cleanout all the headers first, then go from there.

    I'd suggest you go back to default Kubrick or some other tried and tested theme, and get the feel of that (adjusting the CSS bit by bit towards what you really want) before you go any further. With respect, I think you're maybe trying to do too much too soon.

    Don't ask for more suggestions unless you corrected the errors pointed out in the helpful reply!
    Having 3 head sections in a single page is a 100% sure recipe to screw up a page...
    Clean up your code and if it still doesn't work - somebody will offer further help.

    Additional head sections usually appear when you call a full html file into another one. Is there any "include" in your footer?

    Yeah i included the footer in another php file..
    How can i solve that then?
    When i click on the link to view a full post the footer is right on where it should and on the source code it doesnt show the head section, im almost sure that is the problem.

    In cases like this get rid of everything from the included file - except the relevant code/lines; i.e. no head, no body, just exactly what you need to include.
