When I create a page with a default template and parent set to no parent, with the permalinks name being sitename/blog the css on that page gets messed up(including the admin bar is all messed up), if I change the permalinks structure to sitename/blogs it works perfectly fine. Also if I change the parent to another one of the pages with either permalinks name, the css works fine. Does /blog permalink register a weird parent or do something I am not aware other than the defaults. I have other pages with the same setup other than there permalinks name that work fine.

You can view the broken site here password: springy88 click the blog link

Thanks in advance! .

On your wordpress menu use another class instead of "blog" for the blog item, cause your theme has a function that add a similar class to the body so it's creating a conflict in there, try erasing your blog class for you to notice.

Also the app.css if for ur custom css :), no need to use both.

  • I deleted the blog class under appearance menus, and it still looks the same. The only way I can get it to fix is by changing the blog permalink or parent. Mar 12, 2012 at 15:07
  • its working now, with no class and with a new class. Thanks so much for this. Mar 12, 2012 at 15:14
  • no problem! watch out with your margins and the mobile size of the layout Mar 12, 2012 at 15:14
