CSS Issue, please help. Am I a complete goober? (4 posts)

    So I'm utilizing a template "wp-themes-blogger."

    What I'm trying to do is for the home page, push the post content over to the right and slip in a second div which I'll place a youtube video and text below it.

    My process has been to shorten the class which holds my content posts, then add a div before or after (either should work) and insert the code for the youtube vid.

    Then I make this second div and its class shape to fit in the screen. While this is possible and I have done it succesfully, somehow all everything gets shoved down approx 10px. This includes my page nav at the top, the header logo, the search and rss tool (between the two navs), and my sidebar content and post content. Everything gets shoved down.

    This is super unnerving as you could imagine. So I decide to try again a few other ways. I undo EVERYTHING I've done back to the original template as if it was "out of the box."

    But for some reason everything is still pushed down!!! I can't figure it out. And I've tried to completely REDO the whole blog. From loading wordpress, the template, and everything!

    Does anyone know why this could be happening? I can't imagine it should be this difficult to customize a template.

    Thanks,

    Andrew

    I'm building the site on my local server atm...

    I haven't actually uploaded a full site to my hosting provider yet.

    we really do need some code to see what's going on here, but when you're talking about stuff "moving down", it sounds to me like you have got floating elements, en that there isn't enough space horizontally for the last one. When the horizontal space is too small, floating elements get pushed down. so maybe you can try changing the width of your floating elements. (just a wild guess though)
