Sidebar moved down page - need help fixing (3 posts)

    I tried to change the sidebar width of the twenty-ten theme and after I edited the code in the Editor, the sidebar information moved down to the bottom of the page. How can I get it to move back up to the top right?

    Here is the temp site: http://temp.postrockhumanesociety.org/

    And back to the original question, is there a way to make the sidebar wider without messing up the layout?

    Thank you in advance

    It appears that you also need to change the negative left margin of the container div -- as it makes room for the sidebars:

    #container {
        float: left;
        margin: 0 -280px 0 0;
        width: 100%;

    I think 280 is what you changed the sidebars to, right?

    Also, you really should be using a child theme -- not making changes in the core files.

    Thank you for the help. I will try to start using the child themes. I appreciate it!
