Trouble converting website to a wordpress template…

  • # June 12, 2010 at 12:46 pm

    & thank in advance.

    I am working for the first time on taking a static html/css site and converting it to a wordpress template. Check out the original version of the site here:
    And the new version that is on wordpress:

    As you can see the front page doesnt look too happy. Now if I take away the test01 post, the page looks normalish. Although the test post below it will expand in the original post. I am forgetting something simple, anyone have any ideas?

    Also, if you goto and of the single.php posted, for example:

    The comment box doesnt move down the page to the bottom of the post. and also, the sidebar.php stops reading out at the "META" portion.

    Again thanks,

    still trying to get this solved.. my main concerns are why the front page doesnt look right when multiple posts are created. And second, on the single.php post, the comments box wont float down to under neither the post. I can only use top padding/margin, but that means it wont work for every post.

    I am on a deadline and am getting desperate… PLZ and THX

    If you look at the structure of the first site you will see #Main_col, #Photo_col and #Side_col each floated left with the corresponding elements inside each main div. Although you have used the same measurements you have not structured your layout the same way. I suggest you rework the layout like the original. Good Luck with your deadline :geek:
