Problem adapting theme from wordpress

    I hope this is the right place to ask but I don’t know where else to go about it.

    I’ve recently added bbpress to my site, and I’ve been trying to carry over the theme I use for WordPress. I’m not all that great with CSS, and there’s some weird problem with the positioning of the forum. I’m not quite sure I got all the div tags, as I’m still not 100% sure of the internal structure.

    Here’s the forum link: http://www.nyahalcyon.net/forum

    And here’s the website, as a reference: http://www.nyahalcyon.net

    As you can see: the whole of the forum should be in the center, aligned with the background, and right now it’s very much on the left side no matter what I try. I’m obviously missing something somewhere, or I didn’t get the CSS right…

    I’d really appreciate any hints or advice about this.

    (I’m going to have to sort out the other pages, like the topic, forums, etc…. but for now I’d just like to get the front page working 100%.)

    Yes but that doesn’t work.

    @maramac, I would start by trying to validate your XHTML:

    http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nyahalcyon.net%2Fforum%2F

    There are a few issues there that will not do this to your site (missing alt tags, couple of invalid tags), but it does look like there is a missing div or missed closing div. That might help you.

    Also, what sort of tools are you using to help you with this. I find an editor with syntax highlighting (like notepad++ if you’re on Windows) helps a lot, and Firefox with the Web Developer Toolbar also helps a lot to visual things. If you post your platform and your tools, people will be able to post some suggestions. The tools you use can make your job a lot easier.

    I posted another reply there. Check that out too.

    Chrishajer, from what I can see from the validation, all the problems listed on there are to do with either the footer, the members online, the attachments, etc… – all things that happen further down on the page or aren’t on the actual front page.

    I’m thinking I’ve got my CSS wrong somewhere. I just cannot figure out where, since, as I already mentioned, my CSS is a bit shaky. I get by, but to find the reasons for errors like this – I just can’t manage with that.

    I’m using firefox and notepad++. I’ve got the web developer toolbar installed, but so far I’ve yet to figure out all I can do with it.

    Did you read my reply over bbshowase? Thats the way it can be solved. To help you in your aim, install Firebug on Firefox. Run it using F12 and then you can catch the DIV you want.

    Hope that helps ;)

    I read it and I already replied to it. That didn’t solve it. I did try it last night and it didn’t change anything.

    I’m going to try out firebug now.

    Thanks for the advice about firebug – I solved it.
