    TG...

    I have already tried putting in the clearer manually in a few posts, but with .storycontent {float:right} in the css, it still completely messes up everything making each post full page width, ignoring the sidebar area.

    What *did* work BUT ONLY FOR IE, was in the css for #main getting rid of margin-left:230px and substituting float:right width=75% .

    In Firefox, however the entire main column was moved down until the point where the sidebar text ended.

    Grrrrr.

    lol find another source of revenue? lmao j/k... but it appears that after several people have tried to help fix this, it's not working... isn't there a way you can use text links or something with that affiliate?

    well if you float the sidebar left and the content right, then you need another clear-ing div after your two floats....

    Take a look at the template I've been working with:
    http://techgnome.anderson-website.net/mainpage.html
    Not 100% the same as what you are working with, but in that second section where newsflashes and popular reads is located, each of those are floated left & right respectfully. Immediately after those (view the source to see it)... I've got a clear div tag (classs="clearDiv") .... In addition, after the menu (mine is ordered so that content is first, menu second) there's another clearing div tag, and then the footer.

    LadyL... this not an affiliate listing or site... it is about misleading advertising.

    TechGnome...

    Two divclears did not make Firefox work. (it still had completely black space to the right of the full length of the side bar, and the content only began after the sidebar ended).

    I am about to give up... and return to my original solution: just trying to put enough carriage returns after the text when it is short to cover enough space down to the bottom of the picture. (Trouble is the page renders differently on every computer so it is easy to undershoot or overshoot the number of blank lines of text.)
