Platform by Pagelines
I’m finding difficult to sort this problem out … Sorry if I’m not explaining myself very well I’ll try my best.
I’ve got the free Platform theme by Pagelines and I’ve noticed that the primary sidebar (recent comments and facebook widget) on the right all of the sudden shows at the bottom, strarting from the end of the content of the page or posts. I think the content area kind of shrinks as well but I’m not sure if that’s related. I’ve noticed this after I’ve logged in from my macbook at home. So I had to restore the options of the template to default, this has happened twice.
How is it possible without me changing anything?!
The only thing I can think of is that I’ve modified the footer, I deleted the image of the leaf linked to Pagelines but it was fine then, it didn’t mess up the sidebar, it just happened randomly.
Take a look:
Seems like someone else is having the same problem, and I thought I was going mad…
If you restored it to a working version and stopped the problem from happening, then there won’t be any way to diagnose the problem if it’s no longer there to diagnose!
Sounds like a div got improperly closed or left open and restoring everything fixed that. But without seeing the problem in action, I can only guess.
Yeah, no I get it, it’s just that I fixed it last night and don’t know how to make it happen again…
Lol well if it’s not happening again and you don’t know how to make it happen again, why tempt it, right? But it would be my best guess that in removing something, you removed a
</div>somewhere, which could drag the next div below the previous one.
I don’t want to annoy you with boring stuff but here is the footer I’ve modified:
This file controls the ending HTML </body></html> and common graphical elements in your site footer.
You can control what shows up where using WordPress and PageLines PHP conditionals

Does it look ok? I haven’t done any other dodgy things… I swear
The problem with pagelines is that its so full of call backs to different files located in different folders and is almost completely controlled by the options page that simply looking at a bit of code from the footer won’t really tell you what you actually need to know about what’s going on.
I had the same problem, and the issue was that I had put something in my content area (a picture) that stretched beyond the defined area. As a result, the sidebar was getting pushed down to fit. You can either resize what’s in your content area to be smaller, or change the size of your sidebar to be smaller in your style.css.
