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

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

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


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
