Problems with Theme and Amazon Widget (4 posts)

    I have a problem adding a new Amazon favorites sidebar widget to my blog (tapdraw.net).

    It seems to be a problem with the theme that I use. I have changed themes and it works fine with another one.

    The problem I am encountering is that the widget stretches all the way from it's place on the list to the bottom of the page.

    I was wondering if there was a way to rewrite the sidebar code or a plugin that I can add to fix this problem. The widget uses <script-> </noscript> tags.
    You can see it at tapdraw.net

    Thanks so much.

    Locate where on the sidebar you want to place the widget (in sidebar.php). I placed mine just below here:
    <?php include (TEMPLATEPATH . '/searchform.php'); ?>

    Create another list item, then create an ordinary html table and put the script code in the first row <tr>. Close the list item and the rest of the tags. Save. Upload. That took care of the problem for me. See below.

  3. <table width="160" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
  4. Hope that helps.

    I'm having the same problem. See my blog at http://www.whynotburnbooks.com. Did putting the script directly into sidebar.php solve the problem? I'm new to this, and don't quite understand how to do it. Any advice would be much appreciated.
    Many thanks.

    If it's sitting at the bottom it's usually a float or clear issue...

    Have a read through of this document...

    Once you understand how float and clear works you should both be able to resolve the problem.... assuming that is the issue (which i think it most likely is).
