  • Just try to click one of your own tags, e.g. “sidebar”.

    I’ve looked in there and can’t see where the problem is. It works fine in other browsers so I don’t understand.

    Don’t worry about the sidebar code.
    Do worry about this:

    Oh, that’s bad. Is that why I’m having problems in Internet Explorer?

    Fixed it, it was the translation buttons forcing the sidebar to move below posts in IE. Thanks for your help though, much appreciated. Now to fix the validation… 😉

    I’m sorry but I’m having the same exact problem…

    My website is in perfect xml valid format, but in IE the sidebar is below the posts… what are the “translation buttons” … relatively new to all this so any help is appreciated.

    IE6 doesn’t understand css very well, IE7 is somehow better at that, but still not 100%. If only IE6 does that, replace all “width: 100%;” in your css with 99%. I can see at least a couple here:

    h2 {
    color: #356520;
    margin: 0px 0px 2px;
    border-bottom: 1px dotted #356520;
    width:100%;
    font: lighter 2em/1em Georgia,"Times New Roman",Times,serif;
    padding-bottom: 3px;
    }
    
    #content {
    padding: 10px 0px 30px 0px;
    width: 100%;
    }

    Hopefully that will fix it.

    thanks man, i’ll give it a shot right now and let you know how it goes… thanks for the speedy reply btw

    nada… what’s really weird is how the sidebar accepts the feedbutton, but kicks everything else to the bottom of the posts in IE7…

    Hmmm, perhaps try a different theme? You can still adapt the look of your site, but the html/css structure will be different (better?).

    yeah that’s what I’m thinking about… just applying this whole theme template I created into something that formats into a smaller more fit screen.
