[resolved] Sidebar in IE wrong since Upgrade to 2.6 (7 posts)

    Everything is fine in FF, but in IE, the sidebar is at the bottom of the page all of a sudden. The only thing different is that I upgraded to 2.6. I'm 95% sure it worked fine in IE yesterday before the upgrade, but can't fully recall. When you view an individual post page, everything is fine. It is only on the main page.

    I've tried:

    Deactivating all widgets...
    removing one post a time to see if something in a particular post is causing an issue...

    No idea what's causing the problem. I'm sure it's a missing bit of code, but I can't figure out what it is. Any help would be appreciated.

    That is typically an issue if a new post has open tags that dont' close. or if you have an image that is oversized for the column width... I seem to remember someone mentioning something wierd about image sizes and stuff too, so you might have gotten nailed on that.

    Yeah, I thought this too, but I removed a bunch of posts and this didn't change anything.

    Get rid of everything before the doctype code in your theme's header.php (the blank lines and the incorrectly placed <title>Everyone But You</title>) and then validate your code:

    Good call, but I can't figure out how to get rid of this. I figured it was a plug in like SEO pack putting this there, but it's not. If I deactivate all of my plugins it's still there.

    What might be putting this there?

    There's nothing in my header.php that would indicate that this title tag should be there. Here's the full thing:

    <!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">

    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="<?php bloginfo('html_type'); ?>; charset=<?php bloginfo('charset'); ?>" />
    <meta name="generator" content="WordPress <?php bloginfo('version'); ?>" /> <!-- leave this for stats please -->
    <title><?php if (function_exists('seo_title_tag')) { seo_title_tag(); } else { bloginfo('name'); wp_title();} ?></title>
    <meta name="description" content="Everyone But You - Tracking the bizarre things people suddenly search for at Google.">

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_url'); ?>" type="text/css" media="screen" />
    <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS 2.0" href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>" />
    <link rel="alternate" type="text/xml" title="RSS .92" href="<?php bloginfo('rss_url'); ?>" />
    <link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="Atom 0.3" href="<?php bloginfo('atom_url'); ?>" />
    <link rel="pingback" href="<?php bloginfo('pingback_url'); ?>" />

    <?php wp_get_archives('type=monthly&format=link'); ?>
    <?php //comments_popup_script(); // off by default ?>
    <?php wp_head(); ?>
    <link href='/favicon.ico' rel='icon'/>
    <link href='/favicon.ico' rel='shortcut icon'/>
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
    <body><div id="container">

    <div id="header" onclick="location.href='<?php echo get_settings('home'); ?>/';" style="cursor:pointer;">

    <div id="banner"> </div>

    <div id="description-container">
    <div class="description"><p><?php bloginfo('description'); ?></p></div>

    Fixed. I guess I didn't fix all the images in all the posts. That's what the problem was. One or two images were too big and pushed just a little into where the sidebar should fit sending it to the bottom of the page.
