I am looking at my site on IE and it seems that some of the text is not dispalying properly I have the following entered
[two_third first] [dropcap3]1[/dropcap3] Equipment for
I have the “1″ inside of the cirlce and there is a line that goes across the page 2/3′s of the way and then showing the text. On Firefox it is not showing this way. Any suggestions ? This page is currently located at sabrinagooddall.com/servicesMarch 9, 2011 at 10:56 pm #41941
I just checked the html output with the w3c validator and it seems the visual wordpress editor is messing up somethin:
<h3><div class="two_third first"></div> <span class="dropcap3">
it wants to put the column into a h3 tag which is invalid markup, which usually kills any proper output in internet explorer.
You might want to try to open the html editor and move the h3 tags into the column.

Thank you for looking into this. Can you explain this a little more in detail? I’m so new at all this that just went a little over my head!March 9, 2011 at 11:07 pm #41943
When writing a post or page you should notice two tabs at the top of your textarea which state “visual” and “HTML”. click the html tab and you will see the raw html version of your post. now search for the first occurence of a nesting similar to this:
you need to move the h3 tags inside of the column shortcodes to get a valid html output that gets rendered correctly by all browsers. that applies to all kind of column shortcodes since all of them create div elements and those are not allowed within <h3>March 9, 2011 at 11:27 pm #41944
I tried editing it to this
<h3>[two_third]As business becomes more difficult, control of cash and the ability to borrow becomes critical. The common denominator of all bankruptcies and people with bad credit is that they could not make their payments as agreed. The reason for this of course is that their cash had been diminished to the point of exhaustion. Much of their cash was tied up in fixed assets or equipment which, if available, could have preserved their credit and kept them in business.[/two_third]</h3>
And it makes the font switch to Heading 3 instead of the paragraph font. It seems like it is recognizing it as a heading command. ..Did I do this wrong?
Thanks for your help!March 9, 2011 at 11:29 pm #41945
Just to clarify, this is how I originally had it

One more point about IE ..It seems to be the main browser I am seeing a blue line around all the images…any thoughts on that?March 10, 2011 at 4:15 pm #41947
if the font switches to h3 there is a remaining h3 tag in your code. its probably empty so you cant select it in the visual editor. just make sure you switch to the html editor and remove it there. the shortcode itself doesnt cause this behavior, thats the one thing I am shure :)
There will be an update later today, available on themeforest which will fix several bugs and shortcommuings. the logo border and image borders are one of them :)

Thanks for the update! I posted a question in another thread but will re-post here just to keep things flowing. How do I get the update? Do I download all the files and re-upload them? not sure how that works without messing up the site I have already started building.March 11, 2011 at 6:51 am #41949
yes – just download the files from themeforest and install the theme via wp backend or ftp upload. If you made modifications to theme files you must do them again or you just replace the updated files (see version.rtf in the download package)March 22, 2011 at 6:11 pm #41950
Thanks for the information. I downloaded the newer files but I am not sure which ones need to be replaced with the original version. I don’t want to have to redo the entire site. Anyone know which files need to be re-uploaded using ftp?March 23, 2011 at 7:08 am #41951
I must admit I don’t understand this question. Version.rtf tells you which files where updated – please upload them to your themes directory. I’m not sure what you mean with “need to be replaced with the original version”…March 25, 2011 at 4:33 pm #41952
I ended up just re-uploding the theme, it was easier than trying to figure out how to upload individual files. Thanks for your help!March 26, 2011 at 5:39 pm #41953
