Support » Fixing WordPress » Right column still displayed under left column in IE

  • I know this issue has been brought up, but I have been unable to find the solution in my search of previous posts. My floating columns are being displayed one over the other. I can get them to display side by side, but to do that I have to reduce the width of the first column, and the width of the second is ignored anyway. After doing that, the pages don’t look good in Firefox anymore. I’ve had this problem with Kubric as well as my current theme, Gumamela. I use a Mac, so I don’t see the problem very often, but people as starting to ask about it.

    Can someone suggest a solution? I apologize if this is a dead horse, I just haven’t been able to find a fix in previous posts.

    Here are the styles that seem to be in control:

    #content {
    	width: 760px;
    	margin: 0 auto;
    	background: #FFFFFF url(images/img2_alt.gif) repeat-y;
    #colOne {
    	float: left;
            width: 500px;
    #colTwo {
    	float: left;
            width: 240px;

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

  • I don’t know about your theme… but in the default (which active at this moment) you have this:

    .narrowcolumn {
    	float: left;
    	padding: 0 0 20px 45px;
    	margin: 0px 0 0;
    	width: 450px;

    yet you have an image that is 500px wide in it…
    So, what do you expect?

    Thanks Moshu. As I mentioned in my query, I’m using “Gumamela” right now. A freebie from the Free WordPress Themes site. I reduced the colOne style to 500 thinking that maybe things would get bumped around because of margins and padding. Otherwise, it should be 520.

    I do still have another WordPress site using Kubric that seems to be working right now, but I have no idea why.

    Can you offer a suggestion that can help?

    I’m still struggling with this issue. I’ve tried several two column themes now, and they all have problems with the menu column being displayed beneath the main content column in IE. It all looks great using Firefox.

    Here’s my site, so that you can see the issue in IE.

    I would appreciate any suggestions. I’m stumped.

    I have the same problem with my site
