Sidebar Displays in Footer (9 posts)

    I have been attempting to duplicate my shopify theme on our wordpress installation - using WP as the blog platform rather than shopify:

    http://palmettoblended.com (shopify)
    http://blog.palmettoblended.com (wp)

    I am running into issues with the sidebar, as it is displaying in the footer of the theme.

    Maybe I have been looking at this too long and missing the easy fix?

    Any help/feedback is appreciated!

    I'm sorry but as you appear to be using a commercial theme, you need to seek support from the theme's developer/vendor. We do not support commercial products here.

    Actually, the WP theme I am using is Twenty Ten, which is one of the default themes that comes installed on wordpress.

    Anyone else know what may fix this issue?

    Are you using a child theme or a custom CSS plugin?

    I have made direct edits to the template files and CSS -- rather, I probably should have implemented a child theme / css plugin.

    there is hardly a trace of the original Twenty Ten in the code :-(

    you seem to have build some html validation errors into your theme;

    fixing the errors might also fix the sidebar problem...

    Thanks for the feedback. I've cleared up all errors and it appears to be validating now -- unfortunately, I am still seeing the issue. The sidebar continues to display in the footer. Very frustrating..

    you seem to be closing the div .row too early (before the sidebar) and not having a .span3 in the sidebar div;

    from the html output in the browser - change this section's related code in your templates:

    </div> <!-- /.span9 articles -->
    </div> <!-- /blog-->
    
    		<div id="primary" class="widget-area" role="complementary">

    to:

    </div> <!-- /.span9 articles -->
    
    		<div id="primary" class="widget-area span3" role="complementary">

    (not widely tested)

    the problem seems to be with the html structure of your edits - not really WordPress related.
