Background not displaying (6 posts)

    For some reason, the image for the background is not displaying on my blog.


    Is there a place I can access the default CSS code for this theme so I can compare what is different in my CSS style sheet?

    Also, I was having formatting issues with the bottom of my sidebar. My blog was formatting the bottom of my sidebar like it was a blog post and not the sidebar. The sidebar widgets weren't lined up, they had images going across the whole page etc. I deleted the strangely formatted widgets in the sidebar and that's when my background went missing.

    Just download another copy of the theme and compare the style.css files.

    You have a bunch of mark-up errors -- the ones that have to do with unclosed or extra tags are likely causing the problems.


    Where is the missing background supposed to be -- which element?

    The CSS files are the same. I compared the new download to my files and there weren't any differences that I could see. Now I'm not sure what exactly is wrong with my blog.

    The background is supposed to have lines on it, but halfway down the blog you'll see it be entirely white. Also, at the very bottom of the sidebar, the Links widget is not formatted correctly.

    It's due to the errors -- as I said earlier -- you have a whole bunch of coding errors from line 791 to the end of the page.... Those kinds of tag errors cause major problems.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to help me.

    How do you fix those errors?

    The validator results tell you where the "bad" tags are -- you have to go through the code in that area and figure out which tags are open or misplaced or whatever.
