Sidebar at the bottom, help! (20 posts)

    Ok this actually happened with multiple themes that I tried and it sucks cause all the themes that I found that are even close to what I like in order to edit it, the sidebar ends up messing up and going to the bottom of all the posts. I dont know why.

    Im using the BLIGBLOG theme right now and Id like to continue using that but just edit it a bit. Only thing is the sidebar is at the bottle. Look : http://www.damienbenoit.com/blog/

    I didn't mess with any of the theme codes, I just activated it. So what do I have to do to fix this problem.

    Im sorry I been posting so much, I hate having to ask questions. I like figuring things out myself. But I really dont want to mess this thing up more. HELP!

    Nothing wrong with questions :)

    Resize the 'Sunset massacre' image - that's the cause.

    podz did an excellent job solving your problem. But... it would have been much quicker if you did a search of the site.

    I don't know there, Marc, a twelve minute turn around time to get someone else to do the work seems to me to be a pretty nice trade-off. And, podz, TWELVE minutes?? You are slipping! Skettalee, no offense, I'm just futzin' with podz (Portable On-demand Zaphodian)

    It is still a width problem for those who stubbornly insist on using a browser that hasn't been updated in years... IE. Reduce the width of the sidebar or some other element till you get it to pop back up.

    We cannot diagnose the exact problem (usually it is pics) in IE on the fly like we can for problems in FF.

    Well I cant use firefox at work, they block it. Did the sidebar show on the side for you then?

    How do I actually change the width of the sidebar?

    Somewhere in the css:
    #sidebar {
    float:right;
    width: blah;
    }

    I actually found this code :

    .sidebar {
    width: 170px;
    padding: 30px 8px 35px 8px;
    float:right;
    font-size: 10px;
    }

    And those values are what I changed it to. But i dont know what it should be!

    Hey you know what, it fixed with the code changed to this :

    .sidebar {
    width: 170px;
    padding: 5px 8px 0px 8px;
    float:right;
    font-size: 10px;
    }

    I can read ;-) Your site is the one I am talking about. In my FF and IE the sidebar is in place at the upper right, just like the page your friend has.

    The border-bottom for "Latest Posts" is just a few pixels higher than the one for "Need intro...." in IE and a good bit higher in FF but all looks fine.

    Test adding this to the sidebar in the stylesheet:

    position: absolute;

    See if it works. Good luck!

    catelong -

    you have a messed up closing div tag. It's making your sidebar and footer show up *within * your content area, and not outside of it, and it's also not clearing your wrapper float.

    I thank them and hope that my work can serve as inspiration to others. </p><div />

    That last div is supposed to be </div> -the way it is now, it's opening a new div tag, and the following closing tag that's *supposed* to close out your "postentry" is left open, causing everything to drop into the content area.

    Fix that.
