I have literally just installed this theme on a brand new installation of WP, and I’ve added 2 posts. The right sidebar is is displaying in the footer, leaving an empty space down the right hand side of my homepage (it works fine on post pages). I only have an SSH Updater plugin installed, and no core files have been adjusted – I’ve literally just tried the theme out! I’d like to use this theme, probably the paid upgrade, but this isn’t a great start!
This error is caused by an erroneous </div> in the released code.
I corrected this by removing the </div> on line 70 of \wp-content\themes\magazine-basic\index.php.
THANK YOU agentace so much for posting this solution. I was beating my head against the wally trying to “inspect element” all over the place to figure out what was wrong. I even contacted the developer to no avail. I have to say, for such a complex theme to be brought down by such a basic bug really undermines my confidence in this theme. I think I’ll have a conversation with my client about maybe finding another one that suits their needs.
I have found it resolves itself when you add content. Once you have a few posts the homepage displays perfectly.
I was able to apply the fix offered by agentace above to my child theme and it seems to fix the problem. However 2 people connected with this project who are using Windows laptops have reported that the right sidebar ends up in the footer (I am still trying to collect info on their specific OS). The site displays perfectly on Mac machines and most PCs.
Is it possible that some PC laptops are loading the page using a different template or perhaps are using the page template in the parent folder instead of the child theme folder? It’s a perplexing problem.
Here is an interesting discovery I made: agentace’s fix works great only when certain conditions are present.
If the main content window on the posts page where the loop operates has anywhere from one to three posts, that </div> on line 70 has to come out. If you add a 4th post and “Customize–>Front Page–>Number of Posts” is set to more than 3, the layout again breaks but can be fixed if you add that </div> back in at line 70.
I hope the theme developer is taking note of this because this theme needs some work.
