    As of this morning, I have the following issues with the Front Page:

    1. Background fills the entire page.

    2. Sidebar with categories, links, etc. is missing.

    3. The menu with New > Post at the top is missing; I must sign into the Dashboard to do anything.

    If I click on a category in a post, ie, "Posted in Life On The Big Blue Marble", it's all good.

    Any ideas?

    I do notice in a line by line comparison of the page sourse that one line is missing on the damaged page. Is it safe to paste it in there?

    1. add overflow:hidden; to #page (CSS)

    3. The menu with New > Post at the top is missing; I must sign into the Dashboard to do anything.

    You can only create new posts after logged in.

    Sorry, my ignorance is legendary. How do I do this?

    OK, I guess this is in the Theme Editor?
    I see #page CSS 5 times in there

    Edit the file (you can do this through administrator dashboard, in, Appearance, editor, then find the file on the right) style.css

    Search for "#page"
    within the curly braces ({ ... }), add
    overflow:hidden

    examples:

    You are fast.
    #page is in there 5 times. Not sure which entry to edit.

    That was under /* =Print
    Did not appear to do anything

    This is what it looks like now:
    #page {
    overflow:hidden
    clear: both !important;
    display: block !important;
    float: none !important;
    max-width: 100%;
    position: relative !important;

    Try

    #page {
    overflow:hidden !important;

    No change. Is now:

    #page {
    overflow:hidden !important;
    clear: both !important;
    display: block !important;
    float: none !important;
    max-width: 100%;
    position: relative !important;

    Okay remove that overflow hidden,

    scroll to the bottom of the style.css file and add this

    #page {
     overflow: hidden !important;
    }

    I notice that right under the menu there is a white bar, as if something is blocking the display.

    Looks like it took a few minutes for the update to go through.

    However:
    The Sidebar is missing
    The menu at the top (new Post, etc,) is missing. (you wouldn't see this, of course.)
    However, if I click on say "Posted in Life On The Big Blue Marble", and go to that category, it looks correct. I can actually post from there.

    And by the way, I really appreciate the help. It looks much better now than it did.

    Everything on this page, for instance, looks perfect.

    Let's call this closed. I'll start another thread for the other stuff.
