i’ve made a mock up of a site i wanna do in html.. i installed wordpress on another site to try to replicate it and its not showing up. wordpress has so many different files that i don’t know where to begin some code and end it.
the div page-wrap class group forces the html site in a set size where as the wordpress doesn’t do that..
i’m confused on what i’m doing wrong.
thanks for all the advice guys. it helped me understand the div boxes for the html side ..December 31, 2010 at 12:27 am #68106
on the wordpress version, it would help a lot if you use firefox and intall firebug for firefox. Then you can right click on an area and choose “Inspect Element”. This is great for finding out what classes wordpress is adding to the divs in the code. Then in your css, you can add those classes with the appropriate rulesDecember 31, 2010 at 1:28 am #68128
thanks, i installed it. the sidebar shows on the bottom instead of top right.. is there a way to set the margins or something to position it on the top right?December 31, 2010 at 1:33 am #68130
this is where firebug really comes into play. If you start firebug and hover over the code, you will see the element on the page get highlighted. This shows you how a specific element is affecting the page. I can see that your post on the left is 100% of the page width which is why your sidebar is showing on the bottom right. You need to float your posts left, give them a width short enough to allow for the post and the sidebar to fit side by side on the page. that will allow your sidebar to move back to the topDecember 31, 2010 at 2:08 am #68063
thanks man. i didn’t think about the posts that took up all that space. i did chris’s lynda.com wordpress tutorial and was in the process of transferring to wordpress.December 31, 2010 at 12:54 pm #67920
i’ve made the h2 tag a width of 450px but it still shows full length and is breaking up my page.
i’m using firebug and this line of code extends the length of the page..
div id=”post-27″ class=”post-27 post type-post hentry category-uncategorized”
i don’t know where this post id is.
the .post, .postmetadata and .entry are 450px and look fine in firebug.December 31, 2010 at 1:58 pm #67923
you don’t have to style for id=”post-27″. what you need to do is put the wordpress loop in a div of your own and give it a class of whatever you want and style that div. Then you can place it on the left of your page and the sidebar on the right of your pageDecember 31, 2010 at 8:11 pm #67938
thanks cyber for all the tips. its looking better. i’m gonna look for the loops you are talking about.January 1, 2011 at 3:40 pm #67884
i’m working on the loop post section of my site.. there is a
gap between the topic of the post and the excerpt. i’m looking at my code and don’t see that. i can remove it in firebug but not in my code.
i tried doing the text-decoration: none; for the topic so it doesn’t show up blue but that isn’t working as well…January 1, 2011 at 3:43 pm #67886
oh god… i just had to remove the
.. apparently the excerpt is already
