    Hi, I´m completely new to wordpress and programming, so please, if someone has a first-grade-type answer, I would appreaciate it!

    Why do the widgets appear all the way down the sidebar top (if they should be at the top...) They used to be on their place, but I changed the theme and boom, down they went!

    Thank you!

    One of your widgets has a width set that is too large for that theme.

    Hi Cliff, thank you so much, you are totally right. I found which widget was the problem, the newsletter one from mailchimp. Now, I don´t understand the code language. Could you please tell me how I can fix it, cause I want the newsletter widget to be far up the list. Here´s the code:

    Thank you!

    Anybody?

    It's actually because of the "clear: both;" in this CSS code:

    .fvcn-list-posts-widget .fvcn-post-content:after {
        clear: both;
        content: " ";
        display: table;
    }

    It's the other problem as well -- you'd have to redo that form -- or make the sidebar wider.

    To change the widths -- adjust the width and margin-left of these elements:

    #sidebar {
        margin-left: 620px;
        width: 320px;
    }
    
    #content {
        float: left;
        width: 615px;
    }
