    Hey guys. I posted this problem in the CSS section, but the problem is most likely the PHP since this is my first WordPress theme. Here’s the question:

    Okay… So, I have a website that I’m in the process of converting to WordPress. Here’s the link to the live website: It works fine in all browsers.

    Here’s the link to the WordPress version in progress: It works fine in all browsers except IE. In IE there’s no min-height in the content, logo and phone number at the top aren’t in the correct position and a spacer I have on the sidebar is (i’m thinking line-height?) thick.

    I’ve been trying to figure it out for like 2 days… I’ve been comparing the CSS and I can’t figure it out. Any help would be appreciated!

    I’ve checked over and compared the CSS from the site with the site and the CSS for the properties and elements are pretty much the same… I think the problem is the WordPress functions rendering after the CSS gets called or something like that, but I could be wrong. Also, on the sidebar, the accordion content’s :hovers don’t work on the blog site, but they work on the normal site in IE, maybe that has something to do with it.

    Here’s a link to the post in the CSS section so you can see what we’ve tried and not tried: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2756



    Instead of comparing the CSS, compare the HTML output. It should be identical.


    Hey, thanks for the help. I figured it out. The only problem was I had PHP comments at the very top of each of the template pages, like saying <!–this page is for the home–> and stuff like that. I removed all of those and it’s working perfectly now! I guess the doctype has to be the first thing in IE.
