Internet Explorer Drops Side Bar (5 posts)

    Hi there,

    I just started using WordPress. I noticed that the theme I downloaded looks great in Firefox but that the side bar drops when I view the site in IE. This happens with the original version of the theme and with my modifications. I have noticed, however, that when I click on my "Bio" page, the sidebar looks fine in IE.

    I really have no clue where to look to find the error as I have no expertise with this stuff at all. I would appreciate any help you guys could offer!

    Thank you:)

    Well, you don't really need any "expertise" with this, except the expertise to type in a search box :)
    Try "sidebar down IE" - and you will see hundreds of similar posts... all pointing to the same problem: something is too wide in a container element.

    Thanks for your reply. I've been searching and, like you, most say there's something too wide or that div tags might be to blame. I guess I just don't know where to look for those things. I don't know what to change and where. I will keep searching.

    Hi Moshu,

    I followed your suggestion and resized some things and something worked because it looks okay now in both browsers. I just hope some little thing doesn't throw it off again!

    I appreciate your help:)
