header and Nav bar on the bottom of site


Active member
I messed up,

I don't what I did, can anyone help me out. I've spent the last few hours trying to find out where I made the mistake. Its not from installing anything, It has to be something in the templates I just dont know where.

Here is a link to my site, www.europeclan.com

The Moderation bar along with the nav bar and top logo are now on the bottom everywhere on the site.

Been using Xenforo for about a week so ya Im new and making dumb mistakes.

Thanks guys.

Make sure you have this in your PAGE_CONTAINER template:

<div id="headerMover">
<div id="headerProxy"></div>

I imagine you removed it at some point?

Here's the default PAGE_CONTAINER template if it helps:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html id="XenForo" lang="{$visitorLanguage.language_code}" dir="{$visitorLanguage.text_direction}" class="Public {xen:if {$visitor.user_id}, 'LoggedIn', 'LoggedOut'} {xen:if {$sidebar}, 'Sidebar', 'NoSidebar'}" xmlns:fb="http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml">
<xen:hook name="page_container_head">
	<meta charset="utf-8" />
	<xen:if is="{$requestPaths.fullBasePath}">
		<base href="{$requestPaths.fullBasePath}" />
		<script><xen:comment>/* Chrome bug and for Google cache */</xen:comment>
			var _b = document.getElementsByTagName('base')[0], _bH = "{xen:jsescape $requestPaths.fullBasePath}";
			if (_b && _b.href != _bH) _b.href = _bH;

	<title><xen:if is="{$title}">{xen:raw $title} | {$xenOptions.boardTitle}<xen:else />{$xenOptions.boardTitle}</xen:if></title>
	<noscript><style>.JsOnly { display: none !important; }</style></noscript>

Hi Chris,
I've got that in there, I even copy and pasted a fresh PAGE_CONTAINER template in to make sure.
: update, I even tried yours but no change.

I get this when I try to load your forum:

You don't have permission to access / on this server.
Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

From the screenshot it looks like you are using a custom style. Try to re-import the xml file again of that style and that should fix whatever is causing your issue. But you should also note that that will undo any extra custom changes that you have applied to the theme yourself.
It actually appears you either:
  • have bad css
  • or removed some css
Specifically referring to this:

#headerMover #header

Adding this:

#headerMover #header {
    left: 0;
    position: absolute;
    top: 0;
    width: 100%;
Fixes the bulk of the issue

But I would search #headerMover #header this and look for some missing ; or closing }

Edit looks like you took the long route ;p, hope you made a back up it was an easier fix than redoing your edits
I was able to replicate the error. If I edit the PAGE_CONTAINER at all, my theme goes to hell. And I have to start all over with a fresh style import.

Must be a bug with the Baisik Xenfocus Theme I have or something. Either way, now I know what causes it.

And thanks again for the input, much appreciated!
