    Hi,

    I have almost completely customized theme twentyeleven. Everything was fine until today. The sidebar has mysteriously relocated to the bottom. I searched this phrase and found the codex troubleshooting, went through the list and found nothing. I am not using any posts, everything is static pages. I have check the the HTML in all pages, nothing seems amiss. When I ran the W3C site validator, it did find errors but no way to find them, only a line number but can't tell which page its on.

    Everything was fine until today. I only added an article link on the Press page. After the sidebar moved, I took it off, but the sidebar remained at the bottom. Also, I have cleared caches, restarted browsers all to no avail using Safari, FF and Chrome (latest versions of each).

    All the posts in this forum I found, 'mysteriously' solved themselves. Mine has not. If I missed something, please feel free to slap it back at me. I welcome the help and thank you very much!

    Have a lovely day!! l;o)

    Do not edit the Twenty Eleven theme. It is the default WordPress theme and having access to an unedited version of the theme is vital when dealing with a range of site issues. First create a child theme for your changes.

    double check comments.php (this is where commenting has gone wrong)

    or upload a new copy of comments.php into your theme

    Thanks! I did not create a child theme but do have an original theme version on my local drive. Removing the commenting did the trick! I will go back and create the child theme so I an avoid silly things like this in the future.

    Have a good one & thanks, again!!
