Another question

I have some Explorer related problems (surprise!). I have tried to find an answer for this in the forum but did not really understand the other IE-related threads.

1. Only in Explorer: The right padding doesn't seem to work on my widgets in Explorer. The text goes to the edge or sometimes outside on the right side

2. Only in Explorer: My center bar with widgets does not listen to the 15px margin tag and floats over to the right sidebar. I have tried several things but can't get it to work.

3. In both FF and IE: I have padding-left: 15px on td#middle which looks good on the front page with widgets. But when a page is open the left side is 15px to narrow. Can I separate them or use the padding in a different way?

Your theme is great! Thanks...

The browsershots link isn't working

What I see is (in actual browsers running on my computer)

IE7: Everything seems to be fine
IE6: The widget heading containers need margin-right: -15px, width: 100% or 100% auto; display: block - one or several of these.

In IE6, even after you got the widget headings working, the negative margins might be misaligned when the page is being scrolled down/up.

It would probably be better to avoid the negative margins there altogether and add a separate DIV for the content:

<DIV class="widget_kbrss"> <--- No padding so its content spans from left to right

<DIV class="heading"> <--- No margin instead of negative margin -15px
Heading
</DIV>

<DIV class="content"> <--- 15px padding
Content
</DIV>

<DIV class="bottom"> <--- No margin
background image transparent PNG
</DIV>

</DIV>

If you cannot add this second DIV "content" manually right into the content area of the KBRSS widget, then you could edit the widget's PHP file.

And IE6 would need a PNG transparency fix, right now the bottom shadow is not transparent in IE6


Currently it looks like this in IE6
