    Is it me or are we seeing a large increase in 'sidebar dropping' questions?
    They are not all due to large images are they?
    I'm wondering if extra </div> are being dropped into posts so closing the structure early.

    ?

    couldn't it all be solved with fluid content columns? *praying*

    i think (from what i've seen) that for the most part it IS oversized images (or words) that tend to cause the issue. usually when i see a poster asking about his sidebar dropping, it's only in IE, and almost always has to do with an image too large for the area it's placed (be it the content or the sidebar)...

    i'd be interested to see if anyone's seen this problem where images/long text is not the issue...

    Not images
    Not long text
    (though he has since changed theme)

    i have been dealin with the problem like crazy...tryin to set up my site to look good in IE as it does in FF.

    in FF i can compress my window to like 3x3 ans still have a side bar...in IE as soon as the page element hits either an image in the side bar or and image in the side bar hits the narrow colum it drops...with the web builder tool bar add on for FF on my browser i can outline the elements and watch it happen as i compare IE to FF.

    http://www.bcoffroad.ca is the one im workin on right now...its the defualt theme but modified a smidge.

    the only solution ive got so far is conditional comments for IE with all my content moved to undisirable locations so the browser can go to a crappy but common rez without dropin it....looks like crap in IE but im gettin close.

    wish there was a quik fix and i im hopin ill find it in a day or soo...lol
