[resolved] Blog Post display begins below the sidebar? (18 posts)

    When I click the Blog Post button on a default fresh WP install, the text entry box is rendered below the last widget in the sidebar at the bottom of the screen. (not rendered IN the sidebar but after the widgets at the bottom of the page)

    Status Update, Quote, and Link all behave normally, but when I choose Blog Post I get a huge area of blank screen and the text entry box is at the bottom of the page.

    I just stumbled on this theme and I am loving it... but this little error is just killing it for me... what am I doing wrong?

    You must be logged in to experience what I have just described, so maybe no-one will understand.

    Ha! And I thought the page was blank. I didn't think to scroll down to the bottom of the sidebar.

    So yeah, I have the same problem.

    Well at least I'm not alone here!

    Still searching for a solution.

    Anyone?

    I'm glad to see I'm not the only one... Hopefully the minor CSS tweak will make it in soon. Weird, how on some browsers I get it, and others do not.

    Thanks for the tip macmeister... you are right about the browser issue.
    I tried 3 different browsers with the following results:

    IE = Works fine
    Firefox = Works fine
    Chrome = NOT WORKING

    I'm having trouble with this as well, if anyone's wondering. (Nobody was wondering.)

    Compact, can you create your own thread with more description of your problem.

    Oh, I decided not to post a new thread simply because I'm having exactly the same problem as the original poster and didn't want to produce a duplicate thread. Just wanted it to be noted that another user was having the same problem!

    Are you using the same version of WordPress on the same physical server hosted by the same hosts with the same plugins, theme & configurations as the original poster? No? Then post a new topic.

    Fine, I'll post what is basically a duplicate thread. Thanks for you help!

    EDIT: Actually, I'll just wait and hope for this thread to be solved, as there really isn't any need to post a duplicate thread.

    in style.css (line 149), try and add:

    overflow: hidden;

    to:

    #postbox {
    	background: #fff;
    	position: relative;
    	padding: 16px 15px 16px 14px;
    }

    I found that this did not work for me. Rather than hide the overflow, I just shrank the Post Title input box from 97.6% to 97.5%

    Yes, shrinking the width worked for me perfectly. Override:hidden didn't work fully although it managed to cover the gap to a large extent but left some space.

    This thread helped me! Thanks to ofosho for the idea of shrinking the input box. It worked. The words "Add Media" and the little camera icon on the right side of the text box move a little too much, but this fix will work for now.

    Thanks!
