View Full Version : Chrome width issue... should be easy fix?

07-05-2011, 02:14 AM
Hey guys, I am really needing your help! I am back to the forums and had to make a new account (lol been so long that I think I was deleted)... anywho...

I had been building this new Wordpress design and it was going quite well until I woke up the next morning and the footer width would not register as 100% in google chrome. In firefox and safari it functions as it should...

I know safari and chrome function very closely to each other, thus I am surprised that chrome is reading the css so differently.

The demo w/ latest files are here: http://bolinphoto.com/demo
It is one page, nav doesn't lead anywhere yet as it will eventually become a wordpress theme... once the footer is fixed. I have fought for hours and just can't get it.

I am assuming most of you have FF w/ css editor and can view the css directly... so i won't post the css unless you guys would prefer that?

Thanks for your time! I am fairly new to css/html so any other hints/tips would be greatly appreciated!

Is the dark blue background that is being covered up by the boxes the footer?

If so, if you remove #main #primary .post-item { height: 241px; }

The footer drops to the bottom. Although I am not sure if this is what's supposed to happen, do you have a .jpg of the design?

(I saw this problem in Chrome and Firefox 5)

Well we made headway! It did bring the footer back down to the bottom of the page, however it still is not expanding to 100% like it does in my safari example:

Also, I have tried deleting the width of the post and that didn't change anything... instead it read the width of the #primary...
