    I’m going to guess this uses an iframe….iframes are sometimes messy to work with, but do you have a link to your site?

    when I look on the phone browser, comments overlapping the sidebar (which comes after the comments )…

    Thanks for the link…however, I viewed your site in the following browsers and did not see any overlapping: IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera…even looked at your site on my iphone.

    Does it still show overlapping for you?

    The other thing is, because this relates to a third party plugin, I can’t provide anything really in support which would have to come from them. However, perhaps if you can show a screenshot, I might be able to take a guess as to what it might be, but as I said, your site looks good when I viewed it.

    hi, 10x for your answer
    yes, sometimes it looks ok, but after a refresh it looks like :
    *on 2 pc (one xp and other win 8.1)in chrome/firefox/ie —
    * on iphone/ipod in safari/chrome —

    i will try to talk with plugin author, but because neither one of the plugin worked (social- which is installed now- and disqus- which is the same idea), I thought it was a theme problem

    thanks again

    Thanks for the screenshots… hard to say what is causing it, but my guess it could be the plugins being used. For your screenshot 1, it looks like the plugin containers for it’s content is not clearing surrounding elements within the page. This is usually done with a “clearfix” which most developers should know about.

    It’s also true that every theme out there is not coded to work with the 10’s of 1000’s of plugins (and vice versa), so sometimes both may not play nice when installed. Case in point, I have a customer who experienced crazy things happening in her site with the theme she was using, and it turned out it was the social plugin she was using. She tried the plugin with the default WP theme and sure enough, it was causing issues there too.

    With Luminescence, it uses a tricky script to keep the sidebar column and the content column equal in height, and sometimes that can cause some conflicts too.

    So with that being said, what happens if you use the plugins you have but switch to the default WP theme, such as Twenty Thirteen or Fourteen?

    fix it… with some changes on plugin code …
    thanks again
