I've recently installed WordPress on my VPS, and after browsing through the themes, I've decided that I liked the default 2013 one the most.
My first problem was that it has almost zero side content, which made my site look desolate after a few centimeters down.
Then I noticed that it was possible to add a side menu, so I did. I've placed the recent posts, meta, and categories there, while keeping the archives and the search on the bottom menu.
However, I noticed that when I placed anything in the side menu - the "proudly powered by WordPress footer text would move to the left of it's containing div - while without a sidebar, it was centered on the entire page horizontally.
This is extremely annoying. Does anyone else have these issues? Is this a feature, or a bug?
On a side note - when do the new official themes arrive usually?
