Support » Fixing WordPress » Sidebar font has enlarged, dropping sidebar below posts

    I use WordPress at my blog, which is hosted on GoDaddy. (http://echoesinthewind.net/) I use the Kubrick theme, and sometime over the weekend, the font size on the sidebar increased, knocking the sidebar down below the posts. This only happens when I am showing posts. When I view a page, click a tag or do a search, the sidebar font goes back to normal and the sidebar appears on the right side of the page, as is should. (For the time being, I made a new page and set that as the default view, and the font size of the sidebar was normal.) I went to the other themes offered, did previews, and the same thing took place, so switching themes is not an option (nor is it my preference). I am limited in what I can do; I do not know how to access the HTML for the theme. Can someone help?

    I should add that I found the coding, but I don’t know what to do there . . .

    Can you link to a page where the problem is currently happening? I looked at several pages on your site and did not see anything. When viewing posts — it’s a single page with NO sidebar — presumably that’s what it is set to?

    WPyogi – I will go change the blog back to the place I have problems. I assume you will see what I see. When I show my posts, the sidebar is in a larger font and is pushed to below the posts. I’ve changed it now.

    Don’t know if it will fix that problem — but you do have a couple of mark-up errors on the page — see this:

    The last one may be causing problems — looks like you are missing a closing tag for the page div.

    Which template are you using on that page?

    I’m using Kubrick as supplied to me through GoDaddy. Do I go into the code on the dashboard and just search for </body until I find it and then close it?

    this post ‘Saturday Single No. 295’ seems to have an extraneous <div> in its content;

    see:

    <p>From <em>Wikipedia</em>:</p>
    <div>
    <p><em>The Acadians are the descen......

    .

    use the html setting of the post editor to fix this.
