    I'm not even sure if this is even possible, but here is my problem / wish:

    I want to have a single sidebar on the right side of my page. I want to width to change under different portions.
    If you look at the site: http://www.abovegroundmagazine.com -- I want the "Advertisements" box to sit underneath the other widgets. It's all inside a div tag in my sidebar, but for some reason it shifts it over to the side. Is this possible?

    Thanks for any help

    You have to make the sidebar itself as wide as the widest section you want inside it. Your ad sidebar is 380 px wide, so regular sidebar has to be 380 px wide.

    You have the ad sidebar after the regular sidebar. Put the ad div inside the regular sidebar, just before it closes.

    ok, so there is no way to make the sidebar change sizes? I was hoping to make the top article width span farther than the bottom portion, but if it's not possible, that's fine. I just wanted to see if it was possible to do.

    you could do that if you don't float the content section left. In that case you can take the ad box out of the sidebar and put it below. Make sure the ad box is float: right

    You may run into a few other placement issues that will need resolving if you do this, but they can be resolved.
