Support » Fixing WordPress » Sidebar has gone crazy!! Help!

  • I moved my sidebar to the left and followed a previous support post to do the following:

    position: absolute;
    left: 2px;

    So, it worked. But when I started to resize my browser window, the sidebar was stuck right there on the left side and it wasn’t moving with the entire thing.

    Help me please. I don’t know what code to write to make it stick in place.

    Thanks in advance!!!

  • OOOPs!! Okay, I think I made it stick. Is it okay to put

    “margin-top: -1990px; “?

    LOL – no 🙂

    Take that away while we look.

    ok… 🙂 sorry… hang on

    okay, this is what happened when I took out the ridiculous margin.

    i enabled the position: absolute;
    and margin-top: -190px; (because I want the sidebar to go up the header)
    but when i resize the browser, it doesn’t move with the rest

    did you guys find what went wrong?

    I’m closer 🙂

    You have a lot of repetition and wierd goings on in the css, so I’ve chopped a lot out to start with.
    First – make a copy of your current css. Keep that safe just in case what I give you sends things even worse.
    Then get the css from here: http://www.phpfi.com/70540
    and replace all your css with that.

    Then we’ll see what needs fixing 🙂

    okay, that worked. thanks.
    can i still insert the vertical graphic beside the sidebar?
    is it safe to overlap the sidebar with the header image?

    You need that image as the background – it was causing the sidebar to be very wide before which is why it dropped down.
    With everything working now, drop it in and see what happens ?

    And the header overlap should be okay

    Thank you so much! It’s finally working… although I had to use a negative top margin to bring the sidebar above the header image…. this time, it’s not a whopping -1990px. 🙂

    THANKS!!! 🙂

    /me does the dance of joy!
