[resolved] Sandbox Theme > Issues with positioning the sidebar on left / right! (3 posts)

    I am having issues placing my sidebars on both sides (left and right) of my blog and these staying within the flow of the content. After seeking some support on WebDeveloper, they said it had to do with my use of position: absolute and position: relative for the primary and secondary sidebars.

    I have fully validated XHTML Strict 1 and CSS 3, and have removed all my use of positioning on elements for the layout itself, except for said issue, those being the sidebar. My site can be found here and the styles I am using here. If I remove my use of absolute positioning, the sidebar is displayed below the container.

    And I moved the 'get' sidebar function to the top of the code, and it at least places the sidebar where I want it without the use of positioning elements, but now I need the entire flow of the site to include the length of the sidebar so when I have short pages it has a minimum height that includes the sidebar.

    Bah, after looking at the original style example given with sandbox, I realized I was not clearing any of my elements. Issued Resolved!
