[resolved] autofocus theme moving the Bigdate data in single posts (10 posts)

    After much playing around with the CSS to customize this cool theme, I now have a small problem regarding the 'entry-meta' positioning on single posts. Initially I had the same condition as the bog standard theme i.e. Bigdate meta data to the right of the post title.
    Now, however, the data appears after the last picture in the post. At this stage of the game, my eyes are square from staring at the screen too long, and from a mental point of view, 2+3 is beginning to equal 6...
    I'm currently running FlA Gallery. Perfectly compatible.

    So, Any ideas? Check out http://actuate-photo.co.za/start/?p=156 to check the problem.

    Thanks much!

    This might be a dumb suggestion but just in case...have you tried copying and pasting the original code back into your "single post" template?

    Your site looks great by the way. May I as how you made your nav bar horizontal? I can only get my nav bar to be horizontal in firefox but not explorer...

    Hi..Yeah I've pasted the original code back in ... no dice. I've changed quite a bit, so I'm going to have to backtrack again. *Sigh*, I'm still a newbie, so the going is slow.

    Thanks for the site comment.

    For the horizontal menu bar, comment out:

    ' #access {display:table;height:160px;vertical-align:middle;width:200px;float:right;} '

    which is found under the header section.

    This works for me in IE7, but the layout of the site in IE is a bit dodgy and doesn't display like it should in FF. There are known issues with IE6, that should have been rectified for IE7 & 8. There are also IE-specific css files in the Autofocus theme folder that you can perhaps look at which may be helpful. Unfortunately, my skills at deciphering a lot of what goes on there are lacking at the moment...

    Hope this helps...Good luck... :)

    Oh and also change the display function line below:

    #access #menu {vertical-align:middle;display:inline;font-size:1.2em;}

    HA! Ok problem solved.
    Couldn't quite pinpoint the area of error, but fixed it by giving an absolute position tag instead of a relative tag...

    Glad it worked out for you.

    I still cant figure out this horizontal nav bar..I did what you said and nothing happened in IE and in FF it just went to the right corner.

    MMM. Ok header code posted below for you to check...

    /* =header */
    #header {margin: 5px 0;text-transform: none;width: 800px;clear: none;display: block;float: left;}
    #header a:hover {text-decoration:none;color:#888;}
    #header h1 a {font-size:1.8em;font-weight:100;letter-spacing:-0.05em;position:relative;}
    #header #blog-description {color:#888;}
    #access {vertical-align:middle;padding: 0 0 10px 0;}
    /* #access {display:table;height:160px;vertical-align:middle;width:200px;float:right;} */
    #access #menu {vertical-align:middle;display:inline;font-size:1.2em;}
    #access #menu ul {vertical-align:inline;display:block;background-color:#cccbcb;}
    /* I changed the menu button background colour here */
    #access #menu ul li {float: left;background-color:#000000;z-index=1;}
    #access #menu ul li a{margin-left:10px;font-weight: bold;display: block; padding: 0 10px;}
    #access #menu a{font-weight:600;}

    its so odd...your code works perfect for ff but not IE for my site.


    I even went in and put in all the orginal code and just changed the header the in stylesheet and still did nothing in IE. Is it just me that cannot see the changes?
