    Hello everyone. I am at my witts end trying to figure out which parameter I changed do make the sidebar drop to below all the content on my first Word Press website, Orange Bowl (a modified Kubrick 1.5).

    I will be extremely grateful to anyone who can solve this. Is it just me or does Kubrick have TOO many styles!

    Thanks to anyone who can crack it. Yours. Jack.

    This is often caused by some unclosed <div> tag, usually in the header.php, but it could be somewhere else too. Did you already try the validator to track errors?

    Hi, sorry for the delayed response!

    The head PHP did have unclosed div and body tags! Sadly, this didn't effect it.

    The validator did came up with plenty of problems (20) but none of them were as you described.

    Which style elements do you think could be the culprit?

    Its a modified Kubrick (WP default) template and there are so many tags I suspect I've changed one little thing and forgotten which one it was.

    Any ideas...?

    try updating your sidebar declaration to this:

    (line 572)

    #sidebar {
      float:left;
      margin-left:20px;
      padding:0px 0pt 10px;
      width:190px;
    }

    Will

    Thanks syprupcore, sadly, still no dice :( Also, setting margin & padding to 0px doesn't help... It must be something else thats causing it...

    You might try editing the following in your style.css file:

    #sidebar
    float:right;
    padding:0px 0pt 10px;
    width:180px;
    }

    and

    #content {
    float:left;
    font-size:1.2em;
    }
