    Hey guys, so I have the retromania theme and when looking at my sidebar, for some reason the bottom half was deleted and now the footer jumped up to the sidebar. Take a look at it at http://www.badmorningclass.com I've been looking everywhere for how to fix the problem and get the bottom half of the html coding but have had no luck. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

    Have you messed around with the theme? I'd delete the theme, download a new copy, and install it again. I looked through the page source code with the Firefox browser and the Firebug extension.

    You should have:

    <div class="wrap">
    	<div class="header">...</div>
    	<div class="content">
    		<div class="content_left">...</div>
    		<div class="footer">...</div>
    	</div>
    </div>

    but you have:

    <div class="wrap">
    	<div class="header">...</div>
    	<div class="content">
    		<div class="content_left">
    			<div class="content_right">
    				<div class="mainbar">...</div>
    				<div class="sidebar">
    					<ul>
    						...
    						<div class="footer">...</div>
    					</ul>
    				</div>
    			</div>
    		<div>
    	</div>
    </div>

    The best plan of attack is to restart and ask for help. WordPress comes with hooks and filters, plugins and (child-)themes, and widgets. I bet we can make the changes you want to your website without having to edit any code in your theme.
