    Question WordPress side fine in FireFox, gross in Safari. How to fix?

    Hi there,
    I've been designing this site using FireFox, but went to look at it the other day in Safari and was horrified to discover that the WordPress side looks crappy (interestingly, the Products side, in Magento, is fine). I've not often run into cross-broswer issues (luck, I guess), so I just don't really know how to solve the spacing issues I'm having for the various divs.

    I would be extremely appreciative if someone could take a look and guide me in the right direction.

    Here's the dev site.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello operapixie,
    I don't have Safari to view that site in but you have some odd CSS...
    You set widths on elements then change those widths elsewhere in your CSS with all those !important's. http://james.padolsey.com/usability/dont-use-important/

    I think the real problem is your document is not laid out properly. You have CSS and scripts that are neither in the head or the body. Check your site in the validator to see what I mean.

    It should be laid out more like this -
    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html lang="en">
      <head>
        <meta charset="utf-8">
        <title>title</title>
        <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
        <script src="script.js"></script>
      </head>
      <body>
        <!-- page content -->
      </body>
    </html>
    Validate often DURING development - Use it like a splelchecker | Debug during Development |Write it for FireFox, ignore IE
    Use the right DocType | Validate your markup | Validate your CSS | Why validating is good | Why tables are bad

    Hmmm...it's based on a template, but so hugely modified that it no longer resembles the original template at all. I wonder if I should just start it over from scratch at this point.

    I think you are beginner as a web designer and you need good result. For good result you need to use word-press theme and modify it. my suggestion for you firs use the theme as it with your information and see the difference and then start your own design.

    With all due respect, you don't know anything about me and my skills, and you clearly didn't read my post which stated that a template had been used, and then modified to within an inch of it's life. I will, however, chalk up the rude tone of the message to English not being your native language, since my experience here on CodingForum has generally been filled with positive, helpful people & posts.
