Sidebar displaying incorrectly (7 posts)

    I've resised the sidebar in inove. If the sidebar extends further down the page than the rest of the content a grey bit of sidebar juts out (by 50px I think). These two URLs should give you an idea of the problem:

    http://www.themusicophile.com/?page_id=27

    Any help would be much appreciated

  3. You've got lots of validation errors. Many of them are unencoded ampersands and won't affect layout, but some will whack your sidebar.

    Fix those and then test in different browsers to check the display.

    Odd... I didn't get an error... very slow to load though.

    Remove the width on div#main. Does that give you the behavior you want?

    You're running into problems with the default images used in the theme...hacking the code without considering the images. The one causing this problem is here:

    Remove it and that problem goes away.

    I also noticed you removed all reference to theme being iNove...while that is perfectly "legal", you may get more help in the future if you give credit somewhere to the theme author--just a suggestion.

    Wow. I'm a wordpress newbie, and I'd heard the support was good, but that was such a fast response.

    I'm not too sure what validation errors are (like I said, total noob) so I'll look into that tomorrow when I've had some sleep. I'm guessing they're probably to do with me just hacking into the code without knowing what I'm doing really. Figaro's fix is working at the moment (thank you).

    I've also included an acknowledgement that the theme is based on iNove at the bottom of my sidebar with a link to the iNove theme homepage.

    Thank you :)

  7. Hacking around is good way to learn; and we all have to start somewhere. And it's good manners to link to WordPress and the theme you're using, as lots of work went into both and both are freely available.

    Validation means the web site code meets standards for good display among all browsers. WordPress outputs valid code; themes don't always do. You'll need to learn to use the built in code editor or a seperate one to fix problems.
