    Hi. Sorry to post again but I got no answers and I think I have narrowed down what the problem is that someone might be able to help with.

    I have a blog at http://politzer.brinkster.net/Blog
    that I want to make look like


    Something about the WordPress code is making that container wider than it should be. How do I customize it so that it stops interfering with the sidebar? Thank you.

    A couple of things to try.

    Add the width to your .entry class:

    .entry {
    	background: #ECDB96 url('images/corner.jpg') no-repeat top left;
    	margin: 20px 20px 0 0;
    	padding: 12px;
    width: 530px;

    Change the padding in your sidebar ID:

    #sidebar {
    	background: url('images/sidetop.jpg') no-repeat top;
    	padding: 0 0px 40px 0px;
    	margin-top: 202px;

    And not sure why you have this div ID and class in place?

    <div id="content" class="narrowcolumn">

    I will try those things.
    I am not sure where the content and narrowcolumn class came from.

    The removal of the sidebar padding helped, but I don't think "entry" might be the right thing. I narrowed the "entry" to 500 px but it's not doing anything.

    Maybe the problem is that I have the sidebar info in the header.php?

    I got rid of the php include sidebar in the index(?) because I wanted to use my own navigation sidebar instead of the WordPress one.

    Where should I put the sidebar info?
