    Hi there,

    I have tried every possible way to fix the footer widget area positioning in my website
    But it appears correctly on my home page but not on any other page.

    It worked beautifully until i tried to put "Facebook like box plugin" to the fourth footer widget, after that everything ruined :(

    I have correctly replaced widgets after that, but nothing worked out!
    I'm so close to bang my head on the computer, Please help guys........

    the linked page contains validation errors: http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fsurestem.com.au%2Fcontact-us%2F&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0

    the last two errors indicate some false matched opening/closing divs.

    if this problem occurs with all (static) pages, then possibly check page.php ...

    for comparison, front page validation report:

    Hi alchymyth,
    Thanks for pointing out the validation errors. I have replace page.php with the original page.php comes with the theme.
    But still no luck :(

    the broken code can also be in the comments code, or the sidebar code or in the widgets, which could have been added manually or by any plugin;

    the content of textwidgets could be broken ... double check that for correct code;

    for instance try to temporarily remove one widget at a time by dragging it into the area below the general widgets where it can be stored without loosing its settings or content;

    check if there is a difference with comments disabled;

    try to temporarily deactivate all plugins to see if that changes anything;

    look into any possible source where the unmatched divs could come from;

    there is no easy way ...

    The theme allows 4 footer widgets.
    I have deleted the theme and uploaded it back.
    I have tried removing widgets, deactivated all plugins nothing seem to work.

    This happened while I was trying to add Facebook Like Box plugging to the forth footer widget, which was bit too big for the footer. It just took all the space from the 4th footer area and when I remove the plugging from the widget area this all went wrong.

    Any other suggestions?
