WordPress 2.0 Kubrick Theme Problems -Solved !

If any of you are using the default Kubrik theme in WordPress 2.0, you may have noted a problem. The Footer seems to be shifted – ever so slightly – to the right! It doesn’t happen in IE 6 though. I have several (test) sites all using that theme at the moment, and they all have the fault. (Not planning on sticking with it long term I might add 😀 )

Naturally, I went looking for a solution, and that Included posting on the forums at WordPress.org.

I quickly found one other person with the same issue (so I was relieved to see it wasn’t just me!) and then a solution appeared.

Hats off to Spencerp for providing the solution.

As usual, the difference in interpretation of CSS by different browsers is a pain. Hopefully IE 7 will be more compliant.

I must admit – an advantage of open-source software is that there is usually someone who has the solution for you 🙂

Well, as I said, I’ve upgraded to WordPress 2.0 . One of the first things I wanted to trial was the WYSIWYG editor with uploaded images.

I uploaded an image file (easy) and tried to insert it into a post – it failed! I was left with no image tag at all as soon as I pressed ‘save‘ or ‘save and continue editing‘. (I looked at the html generated). I was UNHAPPY!

I immediately blamed 2.0 of course! I also blamed the upgrade process just in case 🙂 . I resigned myself to NOT using the wysiwyg editor 🙁 . Later, I tried Podz trial site and confirmed that the editor didn’t work there either. So it must have been 2.0 at fault! Right? WRONG!
