Support » Fixing WordPress » Homepage div content not appearing in correct place

  • Just updated to 3.5.2 One my homepage (, you will see a blank white area on the bottom half next to the Flickr plugin.

    Until I updated, there was text content there. Since updating, the content has moved to BELOW the Flickr photos, when it should be to the RIGHT of it.

    I even uploaded an old version of index.php that I knew displayed correctly at one point, but it seems the update has bumped my content out of its container.

    I think this is a simple fix but I’m pretty inexperienced with WP.

    Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

  • Did you see these warnings on your page?

    Warning: include(../../../_BACKUP JUNE 2013/www/wp-content/themes/grkroc/billboard.php) [function.include]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/grkroc/public_html/wp-content/themes/grkroc/index.php on line 63

    Yep, just appeared as I was working on something else. Working on that. Thanks.

    Still need content in the wrong block, though (the warnings haven’t affected that)

    Warnings are taken care of, but content is still not in the correct container. Any thoughts?

    I use Chrome, primarily, but most of our members view our site in IE so I checked there as well.

    What looks the same? (not sure what you mean by that)

    The cached copy looks the same (i.e., the feedburner div is still below the Flickr div).

    Did you try moving the flickr div inside the kroc-blog div?

    The cached version and the version I saw earlier were the same – now not. But I’m not sure what it’s supposed to look like… there’s a blank white space either way.

    I’d start with those errors – unfortunately, not always easy to track down.

    It’s supposed to look like the cached version.

    Should be columns like this:

    Latest Photos | Latest News | 2 Small
    Flickr div | Text content (kroc-blog div) | News Stories

    Latest Photos and Latest News should be side-by-side. Latest photos area is currently ABOVE the Latest News area.

    I’m not even going to attempt the errors — I do NOT know what I’m doing when it comes to that. I know a little CSS and HTML but that’s it. The errors look like gibberish to me (I took over this site from someone with more programming experience, but I’m a print graphic designer)

    And yes, @crouchingbruin, I tried moving the divs around & combining them but that seems to always mess up my <div id="col-r">

    The flickr div and kroc-blog div are both within <div id="col-l">

    Rats, I thought this would be an easy fix…

    You also have a div called clear which is right after the flickr badge; did you try taking that out? The CSS on that is set to clear:both;, which might be preventing the rest of the text from flowing along the right side.

    Thanks for the suggestion, CrouchingBruin. I just tried that, but nothing changed. Frustrating…

    Has anyone noticed any changes to their own sites since updating to 3.5.2? Because nothing changed in my index.php – it seems to be just the WP update that caused the weird content flow.

    No problems on the 15 sites I updated.

    Haha, point taken, esmi. 🙂

    Well, I’m at a loss, here. If anyone has any other suggestions, I’d love them!



    I have a simliar problem. When I changed content on one of my pages it shifted to this: and it is suppose to look like this:
    With two pages side by side.

    Also I found this div missing in the html but don’t know where to update it in the CSS.

    <div id=”greyContainer”>
    <section id=”left”>
    <!DOCTYPE html>

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
