[resolved] Sidebar problem (6 posts)

    I'm having a problem with my blog in that it seems ok on the index page http://www.spam-blocker-online.com but if any of the posts are clicked on; the sidebar shifts to the bottom of the page. I guess there is a missing div but I can't work out how to fix this as there is only a header.php, index.php, footer.php and sidebar.php for the page layouts. I've tried closing the div in a couple of places that I thought would work which makes the post page ok but then the index nav is out!

    Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Thanks for any help.

    Check your posts for very wide images or long strings of characters (like long words or URLs). They overflow the post area which can make the sidebar fall to the bottom of the page.

    Thanks Maerk, I don't think it's that though; I haven't got any images on the site and it doesn't seem as though I have any long strings of characters, but this is happening on every post page!

    I can't work it out!

    I'd check some of the validation errors. Most are more semantic in nature, but the last couple in this example caught my eye: http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.spam-blocker-online.com%2Fspam%2F27%2F
