Sidebar misplaced- how to fix? (5 posts)

    I work for a college newspaper that runs our website through WordPress. http://www.vsuspectator.com. I'm a media person, not an IT kid, so codes are not my forte. Usually, I don't have to do much mucking about with the coding, but it happens every now and then. A few weeks ago we put up a banner on our main page- nothing fancy, just text with a hyperlink -but when I took it down today, I must have hit something wrong, because my sidebar is no longer at the top of the page in the right column like it should be. It's in the right column, but WAY down at the bottom of the page. Is there a way to get it back to the top of the page where it's supposed to be?
    Sorry if this is an obvious question, but I could really use the help.
    Thanks!

    There are some markup errors. Try to fix them, particularly this one:

    Line 93, Column 8: end tag for "div" omitted, but OMITTAG NO was specified

    I'm having a hard time translating the directions. Again, NOT a code-reader person.
    What does that mean in English?

    My response was in English - simple English I might add!

    try reviewing this codex guide: http://codex.wordpress.org/Validating_a_Website

    Of course you do have the option of engaging a professional to assist you if you feel that this is beyond your capabilities (I am not a consultant).
    See http://jobs.wordpress.net/ if you want to follow that option.

    check in index.php if you can find:

    <div id="sidebar" style="float: right;">
    just before the line with 'get_sidebar()'

    and remove that.

    or try to get support from the theme author, as this seems to be a commercial theme.
