Support » Themes and Templates » Sidebar at the bottom, help!

  • Ok this actually happened with multiple themes that I tried and it sucks cause all the themes that I found that are even close to what I like in order to edit it, the sidebar ends up messing up and going to the bottom of all the posts. I dont know why.

    Im using the BLIGBLOG theme right now and Id like to continue using that but just edit it a bit. Only thing is the sidebar is at the bottle. Look :

    I didn’t mess with any of the theme codes, I just activated it. So what do I have to do to fix this problem.

    Im sorry I been posting so much, I hate having to ask questions. I like figuring things out myself. But I really dont want to mess this thing up more. HELP!

  • Nothing wrong with questions 🙂

    Resize the ‘Sunset massacre’ image – that’s the cause.

    podz did an excellent job solving your problem. But… it would have been much quicker if you did a search of the site.

    ah thanks. I will try to use the search more.

    I don’t know there, Marc, a twelve minute turn around time to get someone else to do the work seems to me to be a pretty nice trade-off. And, podz, TWELVE minutes?? You are slipping! Skettalee, no offense, I’m just futzin’ with podz (Portable On-demand Zaphodian)

    Wow.. did I take that long ?
    I shall go flagellate myself :p

    Hey sorry, back. None of the images are too big yet it still went back to the sidebar being at the bottom. HELP!!! to see!

    It is still a width problem for those who stubbornly insist on using a browser that hasn’t been updated in years… IE. Reduce the width of the sidebar or some other element till you get it to pop back up.

    We cannot diagnose the exact problem (usually it is pics) in IE on the fly like we can for problems in FF.

    Well I cant use firefox at work, they block it. Did the sidebar show on the side for you then?

    How do I actually change the width of the sidebar?

    Somewhere in the css:
    #sidebar {
    width: blah;

    Most of what we call management consists of making it difficult for people to get their work done.” – Peter F. Drucker

    what would yo suggest to put as the width?

    I actually found this code :

    .sidebar {
    width: 170px;
    padding: 30px 8px 35px 8px;
    font-size: 10px;

    And those values are what I changed it to. But i dont know what it should be!

    Please help, i try all kinds of widths and its not works. And also I installed the same theme on my friends blog : and its showing at the top side for him.

    Seems to be working fine now. Was it your flickr?

    No man, the link I just gave was my friends blog that I put the same thing on. Mine is actually

    Ill try to flickr, but i dont think so cause it worked with that before!

    Hey you know what, it fixed with the code changed to this :

    .sidebar {
    width: 170px;
    padding: 5px 8px 0px 8px;
    font-size: 10px;

    Thanks for the help. How does it look it firefox now? I cant see while at work cause the damn military blocks almost everything the net has! lol
