[Solved] A Little Bit of Help with WordPress Page Please?

  • # November 13, 2009 at 11:44 am

    Hi,

    This is driving me nuts and i bet it’s a really easy fix, but i haven’t been able to work it out yet.

    this is my site… http://www.allthebestvids.com

    apart from being basic, and noy actually showing the vids yet, its all good. the basic structure is fine. which means the index.php is all good. but if you click a vid and thus use the single.php there seems to be a problem.

    like this http://allthebestvids.com/sexy/natalie-oxley-fhm-sexy/

    it calls the sidebar.php before it closes the main section. even though in the code it looks to be outside. it’s really getting on my nerves and i’m hoping some hero can come in and save me from a weekend of torture!

    please help, many thanks.

    first, this belongs in the CMS section as it is likely not a CSS issue.

    Regardless, can you please post your single page php code… It will give us better insight to the problem.

    alright cool, i didn’t realise there was a cms section on this forum. if someone could move this it would be sweet.

    anyway back to the problem… the single.php looks like this…

    Code:
    < ?php get_header(); ?>

    < ?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>

    leave a response, or ” rel=”trackback”>trackback from your own site.

    < ?php } elseif (!('open' == $post-> comment_status) && (‘open’ == $post->ping_status)) {
    // Only Pings are Open ?>
    Responses are currently closed, but you can ” rel=”trackback”>trackback from your own site.

    < ?php } elseif (('open' == $post-> comment_status) && !(‘open’ == $post->ping_status)) {
    // Comments are open, Pings are not ?>
    You can skip to the end and leave a response. Pinging is currently not allowed.

    < ?php } elseif (!('open' == $post-> comment_status) && !(‘open’ == $post->ping_status)) {
    // Neither Comments, nor Pings are open ?>
    Both comments and pings are currently closed.

    < ?php } edit_post_link('Edit this entry','','.'); ?>

    < ?php comments_template(); ?>

    • < ?php next_post_link('« Older Entries') ?>
    • < ?php previous_post_link('Newer Entries »') ?>

    < ?php endwhile; else: ?>

    Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.

    < ?php endif; ?>

    < ?php get_sidebar(); ?>

    < ?php get_footer(); ?>

    I suspect that the problem lies in comments.php. Looks like you have your closing div tags confused somewhere. Best thing to do is comment each closing div, then with firebug you will see which one needs moving.

    dude!

    Nice one man! yeah the comments.php was calling the sidebar as well so i deleted it and it worked.

    thank you very much apostrophe, i don’t think i would have worked that out, so you have really helped me there! i really appreciate it.

    thanks again man!


    edit



    that’s also a great idea to comment the divs so you can view it in firebug. Awesome tip!

    I would be bald from stress and hair pulling if I didn’t comment every closing div.
