I used one of Chris’s themes on my WordPress site for an organization called The 1010 Project. When you visit http://www.the1010project.org/partners or any page that has a side bar on the right hand side, the footer jumps up to the bottom of the page-wrap in all IE browsers versions before IE 8.0.
I have little knowledge of IE fixes and bugs and built the whole site in FireFox…
Is anyone aware of how I might be able to fix this issue quickly? Thanks.
Ok – I got it working by making the <div id="page-wrap"> ended after the footer. It might be a little tricky finding the right </div>, I ended up deleting 2 </divs> and putting one after the footer </div>… then it seemed to work :)
Thanks… that makes a ton of sense… unfortunately for me I am having a problem with deciding between the header.php and footer.php files and which </div>’s to remove or add. Is there a way you could possibly be a little more specific, I fear I might mess things up a little too much if I start playing around too much with the coding. Thank you for the help initially.
The file you need to look at should be your footer php file, although I cant be certain as I can not see it… I would suspect that the file should start with a load of </div>’s, if not it might be a little more complex… It all depends how the html was split up.
could you paste whats in your footer.php, that might be the easiest way for me to check. :D
Ok – unfortunatly it looks like the </div>’s you need to remove are going to be in your page.php, single.php, and any templates that you have customised pages.
You do however need to add a </div> before <?php wp_footer(); ?> – from what I can see all the <?php wp_footer(); ?> generates is google stats wordpress plugin stuff. so thats ok. you can probably do that now without worry, as all divs will probably be closed.
