    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    - re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder - from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    Try adding an empty Text widget to your sidebar.

    I did a site using webplus and thought this looked like it and easier to edit thanks

    Unless you want to start customising the sidebar.php file via a child theme, you might be better off choosing another theme. I'd suggest choosing one from http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/ that has been updated since 2011

    How would you go about getting rid of the line down the right and make the page as one.
    Thanks
