I am a new wordpress user and I am still trying to design my blog. I thought I was finished and started posting some test entries. When I tried using the “more tag”, my sidebar scooted down below the main content, and it added an extra layer of borders around my posts. Anybody have an idea on what happened, and how I can fix it?
You can use a margin of 700px, but mechx1 is right that floats would be better.
As to why your sidebar is going down to the bottom. This is a div nesting issue. You may have posted a div into your post. When the more is used you have only one opening div and no closing div, thus your side bar is now inside your content div. I had the same problem earlier today. Check the HTML tab in your post on the admin side, and also check your div tags. You are probably missing one.
