Hi - I have just installed ChronoComments on my site, and it has somehow over-ridden the template and left-aligned the site (instead of centred). Does the component write to a css (or other file that would be relevant)? Any ideas on where I can go looking to fix this up would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi allison,

components/com_chronocomments/style.css

this file may have some classes which may conflict with other classes at your site, you can use Firefox and firebug extension to know where the conflict happens!

Cheers

I was having a simular problem but only in lovely IE6.
My #maincontent div background moved over my left menu (only on pages with chronocomments form).
In components/com_chronocomments/style-ie6.css
I changed
.clear { font-size:0px!important; line-height:0px!important; clear:both;}
to
.clear { font-size:0px!important; line-height:0px!important; display: block;}

and
.clear1 { font-size:10px!important; line-height:10px!important; height:10px; clear:both;}
to
.clear1 { font-size:10px!important; line-height:10px!important; height:10px; display: block;}

That fixed my template going outside of my divs and changing alignment...

Now because of Internet Explorer 6 's policy to ignore the second class when given 2 classes, IE6 users can't give comments because .comment-form has display: none; and is only made visible by adding the second class: .display
<div id="post_x1_form" class="comment-form display">


still looking to solve that...

Thanx Max,

It was so easy,
Just uncommented the width of the #comments-container and changed it to the right width in ie6-style.css which fixed all my problems!
#comments-container { /*width:700px;*/ padding:10px; font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; color:#333333;}

to
#comments-container { width:680px; /* =width of surrounding div */ padding:10px; font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; color:#333333;}


After I did that I didn't even need to change the clear: both to display: block as suggested above.

Cheers and thanks for the great support !!
