    I’m still toying around with the footer, but I still wanted to ask you guys (and girls) a question.

    The code of my footer.php is this…

    <div id="footer">
    Powered by <a href="">WordPress</a>. Theme by Andrej Zukov Gregoric
    <?php wp_footer(); ?></div>

    When I try to style #footer using CSS weird things happen… Using the Web Developer FF extension try to apply a background colour to the footer. Half of the screen turns in to that colour!

  • My guess is those closing div tags are not on the proper order… or it is a flaw in the general structure of the site. With the Dev Toolbar I tried to outline the elements and the footer starts somewhere at the top of the page.

    Yeah, I tried moving the footer between the various </div>’s. I also went through all of my .php’s about three times, and I could not spot an rouge <div> or </div>.

    The problem still remains though? There is no function calling for a footer anywhere in the loop, or in the header…

    help again ?

    Still no luck…

    Maybe if you could glance at my index.php

    <?php get_header(); ?>
    <div id="container">
    <div id="containery">
    <div id="content">
    <?php if(have_posts()) : ?>
    <?php while(have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    <div class="post <?php post_sticky_status(); ?>">
    	<div class="post-header <?php post_sticky_status(); ?>">
    		<div class="entry-date">Written on <?php the_time('F jS, Y'); ?> by <?php the_author(); ?></div>
    		<br></br><br></br><div class="entry-title"><h2><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"title="<?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2></div>
    		<div class="entry-category"><img src="" alt="tag icon"></img> <?php the_category(',') ?></div>
    		<div class="entry-comment"><img src="" alt="Add a comment!"></img> <?php comments_popup_link('No Comments', '1 Comment', '% Comments'); ?></div>
    	<div class="post1 <?php post_sticky_status(); ?>">
    			<div class="entry-content <?php post_sticky_status(); ?>"><?php the_content(); ?></div>
    <?php if ($count==0) { ?>
    <?php } ?>
    <?php $count = $count + 1; ?>
    <?php endwhile; ?>
    <div class="navigation"><?php posts_nav_link(); ?></div>
    <?php endif; ?>
    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>
    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    Sorry, nobody can really read code here. When it is necessary paste code to

    Unless you go through all your code, beginning from the opening body and comment every div (where it starts and where it ends) – you will never figure out. Although that validation page might help!

    Thanks for that, I’ll go through the commenting process tomorrow since it’s getting late. I pasted all my code at pastebin

    But as of today, I’d still like to know how is it even possible that div id=”footer” can be interfering with the whole page?

    Fix your code so it validates. Your problems will go away.
