  1. I'm new to the website game and wanted to build a simple site for my design company.

    has white space: http://scotbaileydesign.com/
    no white space: http://scotbaileydesign.com/portfolio/

    I have been working in firefox and when i sent the link to someone using explorer the left side white space was gone on all the pages but the front page. i checked on several other computers using explorer and it seems to be recurring.

    Scott, run your "no white space page" through this http://validator.w3.org/

    there are a few errors that may be giving you trouble.

    Hopefully someone with more of a clue will answer you - but I do see that there's a script that's loading before your doctype - I'm thinking that MAY be an issue

    Are you using a plugin to load google-analytics.com/ga.js ? - try disabling that.

    If you're loading it through a function - try loading it into 'thematic_after'

  6. when i go into my editor under appearance, i dont have a theme file under that name. that may be an old theme file that i dont have. i just got the theme recently. removing the g analytics script did fix the problem of the white space. i just need to figure out where to stick the analytics back in now.

    I think I confused you.
    "thematic_after" is a hook that you'd use in your functions.php -

    how are you loading the script now? - Is it a plugin or a function?

    This plugin seems to be a good choice - it loads the script at the end of the page (I don't use it - so I don't speak from experience)

  8. i had been loading the script as a plugin via teh analyticator or some such tool. during the installation progress, i had initially attempted to load the script somewhere else. once i disabled the plugin and removed the script where it had been forgotten, the white space issue cleared. i have since plugged the analytics script into the functions.php file and updated it. everything is working properly as far as page appearance. ill check analytics tomorrow to see if it is working again.

    i finally got some work up in the portfolio section as well.

    Looks good.
    I'm not seeing the analytics script anywhere in your source though - bump again if you still need help
