[resolved] Can't get the sidebar to reach as long as content (8 posts)

    I have searched the forums and found lots of topics on this, but no solution has worked for me. I've tried adding a background to a wrapper containing the sidebar and content, and that didn't work. I've also tried with adding a background to the sidebar only and making it repeat, it didn't work at all. The sidebar doesn't seem to want to do what I want it to. Is there any other way around this?

    Tongue firmly planted in cheek:

    I tell you what, if you are able to answer my question, I'll give yours a shot...

    I have a header image on a site I won't let you see that is shifted to the right and I cannot get it aligned correctly no matter what I do. I have tried setting different values for the padding and margin and it didn't work. The image doesn't want to do what I want it to do. Is there any other way around this?

    (Have you checked the threads citing a "clearer div"?)

    mezzoforte - if you can provide a link and then describe the areas it will be easier to help.

    Yeah, I guess that might help, haha...

    I haven't come very far here yet, so don't laugh at a beginner :D. There is another (more annoying) thing now with the side bar... as you can see, when you hover over the links in the sidebar a grey block appears as background (I've used the display: block), but the bullets and the post numbers make the hovered links show in two lines (or three when the links are both bulleted and with a post number). How do I make them show in one line (I would like the colour block to be behind everything else)?

    This should work and give you an idea of how to do it without putting the search form on the bottom...

    #sidebar form {
         clear:both;
         margin: 0;
    }

    Thanks, it worked! Though the search form did appear in the bottom... Or maybe I misunderstood you. It doesn't really matter that much anyway.

    You don't have to use the searchform - that was just there and I could test it. You can put in a dummy div beneath the search form and not display it.

    Oh. Maybe I can blame my being a beginner for not getting that... Anyway, thanks, it worked fine.
