[Resolved] Sidebar appearing below content on front page

  • Hi, the sidebar on the front page of kudelka.com.au is appearing below the content. This doesn’t happen on single posts or pages.

    The theme is twenty twelve. The sidebar was working fine in 3.4.2 but then stopped working (I am not sure exactly when) so I upgraded to 3.5 but no change. I have also tried deactivating all the plugins but no luck.

    The only hack I made was to point the header to an internal page rather than the front page, but this had not caused any problems with the sidebar until recently so seems unlikely to be the culprit.

    Any suggestions much appreciated.

    Cheers,

    Jon

    It could be that you have an extra <div> in your html on that page. Or, you did not close with a </div>. This is quite common when performing a cut and paste.

    Are you using a plugin for your social sharing?

    I deleted and reinstalled twenty twelve and it still does it. I can’t imagine there is an extra div in the default theme. i am using jetpack for social sharing. Turning that off also makes no difference.

    I switched to the twenty eleven and the sidebar was in the right place! It is quite vexing.

    Thanks for the link Andrew, but it sheds no light. I had already searched that myself before asking.

    Cheers,

    Jon

    Jon, the validation results of your home page show errors that are likely to be the cause of your issues.
    For example, look at the errors;

    Line 179, Column 338

    and

    Line 180, Column 11

    http://validator.w3.org/ says,

    Line 180, Column 11: End tag div seen, but there were open elements.
    
    					</div><!-- .entry-content -->

    Check for it. May be an additional closing div tag is causing it.

    the error seems to be in the content of the post ‘Tasting Notes’;
    (you can see the same sidebar error when viewing this single post)

    double check the content of that post for properly matched html tags, using the html setting of the post editor.

    Hi Alchymyth, you sir, are a genius.

    There was a space before the first word in the text of the caption for the image. I removed it and the problem went away.

    Seems like it might be a bug with the twenty twelve theme? Should I report it somewhere?

    Thanks for all the assistance.
