Read More breaks theme (5 posts)

    Hi everyone, I know this is theme related, and I know it's most likely CSS related, but I was curious if there's a quick fix for this. Whenever I put the read more tag into a post, it breaks the right column of the theme I'm using, it dislodges it and it gets pushed underneath the posts. The theme I'm talking about is the SimpleWP theme from Theme Lab:
    http://www.themelab.com/2008/07/21/simplewp-free-wordpress-theme/

    Was curious if anyone else has had the same issue with this theme and if they were able to fix it.

    Thanks for reading,
    Brian.

    Just realized this is in the wrong section, and tried to look for a way for PM a mod but you can't so may I ask this be moved to the right section? Sorry.

    Hey Brian,

    Can you post a link to your site to where this is happening? Or possibly a screenshot to illustrate what exactly the problem is?

    Thanks.

    Hi leland, here are some images describing what I mean. I put captions on them (although it's pretty self explanatory haha).

    The URL to the site is http://www.brian.sponserhost.com
    Just to add, it also happens when I put images in posts.

    Thanks,
    Brian.

    I had the same problem and ended up fixing for my theme.

    in archive.php I found this chunk of code:

    <div class="postbody entry clearfix">
          <?php the_content(__('Read the rest of this entry &raquo;', 'fusion'));  ?>
          </div>

    When looking for this code in your theme, just look the phrase that your theme uses for the read more link. In my case I did a search for "Read the rest of this entry"

    Once you find the code, insert this

    </div>

    Directly after the link phrase. It will look like this when you are done.

    <div class="postbody entry clearfix">
          <?php the_content(__('Read the rest of this entry &raquo;</div>', 'fusion'));  ?>
          </div>

    That worked for me and my theme. Good luck
