    I installed v1.1 of Equix (which is a GREAT theme!!) which corrected most of my issues in IE. However, I still have a problem with the sidebar getting shifted below the main content in my gallery pages in both FF and IE. I'm using simplephp gallery for the gallery. my site is here:

    The equix support forum is a bit quiet, I think because it is new, possibly. Figured I'd try my luck here.

    Warning: lengthy code snippets ahead! Before I get to the previous positioning issue, I wanted to mention that links do not get automatically included in the sidebar like in the kubrick theme. He includes a link template, but I dont want links to be on a completely separtate page. My solution was to cut & paste the link code from Kubrick and it worked fine.

    One other issue - the sidebar gets shortened on all but the index page. How can I correct that?

    On to the sidebar bumping issue: it still occurs on the gallery page only. I'm wondering if I need to edit my gallery template, the same way he provided page/author templates. the current gallery template I have looks like this, it redirects to the sp-index that came with simple php gallery:

    <?php
    /*
    Template Name: Gallery
    */
    get_header();
    ?>
    <meta http-equiv="REFRESH" content="0;url=http://www.designbox.us/blog/wordpress/wp-gal/sp_index.php">

    The sp_index.php looks like this:
    <?php
    /* Don't remove this line. */
    require('../wp-blog-header.php');
    ?>

    <?php get_header(); ?>

    <div id="content" class="wcol">

    <!--<div class="navigation">
    <div class="alignleft"><?php posts_nav_link('','','&laquo; Previous Entries') ?></div>
    <div class="alignright"><?php posts_nav_link('','Next Entries &raquo;','') ?></div>
    </div>-->

    <div id="spg">

    Even without looking at the code I can tell either the content area or the sidebar is too wide - so they do not fit together. That's a common mistake people make.
    Looking at the code: you have this -
    <div id="content" class="wcol"> where W -bviously means "wide" + you call the sidebar. The sidebar is supposed to work only with the ncol = narrow column.

    Hmm. I changed the code from wcol to ncol, but it not only displaces the sidebar, now it makes the window wider as well:

    I am having a similar problem, but it is only in IE. I checked the width of all images and columns, but there is nothing that I can see would cause this. An other ideas?

    Looks like a dead end on this one. I hate to go back to the default, but doesn't look like I have a choice at the moment.
