    Hello everyone! I’ve tried to figure this out on my own and now I give up- I need your help!

    Lately, I’ve noticed a strange phenomenon on my blog at It’s tough to describe, but I’ll try.

    On posts that are shorter than my sidebar, you’ll see that it makes the bottom of the post jump to the bottom of the sidebar, causing a large blank space. For the life of me, I can’t figure out why. Here’s a good example for you:

    Here’s what I’ve tried:

    – Removing the Adsense ad
    – Removing the “Share This” add on

    It’s gotta be something in the sidebar that’s making this happen. But, I haven’t changed anything in the sidebar, so I’m not sure why. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi Jim,

    There seems to be two different <div> elements that are causing this. The first is the div immediately following your AdSense content. Because it’s style is set to clear:both; it is pushing the content below your sidebar. When I changed it to clear:none, the ‘Share This’ content comes back up below the Google Ad.

    The second div has a class of ‘sharing-clear’. When I set this to clear:none; the content comes back up where it should.

    Let me know if this helps!



    Thank you do much for the response- it worked perfectly! It’s very frustrating they would put that code there. I never, ever would’ve found it without your help. I really appreciate it.




    Glad I could help, Jim. You might look into the Firebug extension for the Firefox web browser. It’s always helpful in these types of situations.
