Adelle
2nd blog page sidebar misformatted (5 posts)

    Does anyone know how to realign the sidebar on a blog page?

    My blog is http://keepingitequal.com - if you click on 'blog', the side bar is now listed underneath all of the blog posts instead of on the right hand side.
    If you click 'older posts' you will see that the sidebar is formatted correctly.

    How do I fix this?

    In the past I contacted the original creators of adelle and they said they do not provide support.

    Anyone know how to fix the code?
    All the other pages the sidebar is placed correctly. It is just the most recent blog post page that is incorrect.

    Thank you!!

    See the validated output and look for the mismatched/unclosed tags
    http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http://keepingitequal.com/blog/

    There is this

    <p><center></p>

    and also this in the page source

    <p></center><br />
    </form>

    (it's in the join us today sign me up form)

    Just so you know, when working with WP, it's better to not use Visual Mode. Always use Text Mode(formerly named html mode), especially when embeding code.

    The Adelle theme is now hosted at WP.org, so you should make a decision if you want to keep using the .com version or switch over to the .org version.

    the mistake seems to be somewhere in the post 'Find the Floor'; you also see the sidebar problem when viewing this post as single post.

    double-check the post's content using the 'text' setting of the editor.

    Thank you for all the help! It is fixed!!

    I deleted the code I had for the sign-up form underneath the post; it wasn't really needed anyhow.

    Paulwpxp - you said there is now a wp.org version - I know when I downloaded the file originally I downloaded one that was able to be used in wp.org ... is my theme much different than the one offered on wp.org?

    I also did some editing to the theme to customize it ... Would I have to edit everything again if I download the newest theme file?

    I don't really know the difference in details. The right thing to do is to get into the files and compare the code. The front end is almost identical though. Demo links here for convenience.

    Adelle wp.COM version

    Adelle wp.ORG version

    No matter what version you use, always make changes to it via child theme. And if all the changes you'll ever make is only something in the stylesheet, you can just install one of those Custom CSS plugin and no need to make a child theme. The point is to keep theme files untouched.
