Support » Fixing WordPress » Right sidebar moves down with IE

  • Hi,

    I am having an issue with my sidebar at

    Using IE: when the page is fullscreen the sidebar seems to show correctly in its position but if you reduce the size of the window the sidebar moves to the bottom of the page.

    Note. The sidebar works fine in Firefox

    Is there a way to stop the sidebar moving to the bottem with this theme? Any help to fix this problem is greatly appreciated.

  • It’s called a float drop bug. Generally it happens because the width of the two columns together is too narrow to fit in the space alotted, and one of them is not floated. Try setting both to float (float: left; and float: right). Float drop bugs pop up in various situations, and are resolved by various means. If the above doesn’t fix yours, try working through some of the other causes and fixes you’ll find here.

    Your site looks fine in IE7. You might want to clear up the errors shown here,

    If you narrow the window enough it does drop but that’s because IE doesn’t respect the min-width css declaration. I tested to make sure that everything would fit on 800 by 600 resolution and set the min-width off of that.

    I still cant find a solution to this problem. Yeah the site works in Mozilla and IE7 but when im at work and try it out on IE6 the sidebar drops down if i dont have the window fullscreen. So does this mean there is no fix for this IE6 problem jeremy?

    Like I said it has to do with IE not respecting the min width declaration. After looking at your site at 800 x 600 I see that it still drops, so you could try changing the width on the #r_sidebar css in the style.php file and changing the width to 18%.

    I found that if i inserted an image which is too big(wide), the sidebar drops.

    This only happened in pages, rather than categories and posts.

    Resize the content ( an image in my case) and test to see when the side bar pops back.

    try to fixed width your page
