I'm working on a theme hosted on a local server, so I apologize that I can't link to it.
Here are a few screencaps of what's happening; basically the sidebar is wrapping around the search results, rather than staying in the sidebar section.
This is my search.php file: http://pastebin.com/L4aZq34Y
FWIW, I'm using the 960 grid for my theme.
Is this something I need to change the styling on in sidebar.php, or search.php?
I hope there is enough here, please let me know if you need any additional info.
