Old Template Plus New WordPress Equals Problems

oops! my theme must be broken
oops! I guess my theme is broken! 😉

I spent a lot of time looking into the problem I was having with the SFC plugin and after all the searching and digging I’ve come to the conclusion that my problem is most likely my Template.

The problem (as far as I can tell at this point) is that I made this template way back when I was using WordPress 2.1 and there have been many significant changes to WordPress since then and especially with the latest version (3.0).

So in the next few days I’m going to have to either make a whole new template or do some serious revisions to this one. Please be patient with me during this time, hopefully it will be a fairly painless process. I will post updates as time allows to let you know how it goes.

If I discover anything significant along the way I’ll be sure to post it here. Maybe a tutorial is in order? 🙂

Website Alignment Issues

Firebug
Firebug Extension for Firefox

It has come to my attention that my template’s alignment is not quite right when displayed in certain browsers. Anything but Firefox to be specific.

I will take a look at the CSS and HTML and try to find the problem when I can get to a proper computer (I’m on my iPhone right now). In the meantime I thought this might be a good time to mention a handy tool for anyone who is interested in web design/development. Perhaps you have heard of it before, but perhaps not. (it’s also another great reason to use Firefox as your primary browser).

Firefox has an awesome addon called “Firebug” which allows you to do a lot of amazing things when testing, modifying, creating, and etc. I will try to devote a proper post to it at a later time. Unfortunately right now my son is throwing a fit and I must tend to him.

So if you are viewing my site in IE, Chrome, Safari, Opera, or anything other than Firefox, please be patient, I will fix the display bug as soon as possible. In the mean time check out Firefox and the firebug addon!
