Sidebar Hijinks

  • Did you maybe just add something to it that would cause it to be wider and therefore not fit into the alloted space?

    argg.. I’ve had this problem before.. and I fixed it somehow.. but I don’t remember… but anyway here is another way to fix it:

    change:
    #sidebar
    {
    padding: 20px 0 10px 0;
    margin-left: 545px;
    width: 190px;
    }
    to
    #sidebar
    {
    padding: 20px 0 10px 0;
    margin-left: 545px;
    width: 190px;
    float: right;
    }

    Hopefully that should fix it.

    This sort of problem is generally caused by something (graphic, link, etc.) which has a width dimension larger than the width dimension of its container – sometimes it’s in the sidebar, sometimes in the main part of the blog (in a post generally).

    Check the widths in the last few items you’ve added, whether in the sidebar or posts….

    Ummm… I don’t seem to have a #sidebar that concise. Instead I have many that all are followed with ul, ul ol, etc.

    This is the style.css file in my themes folder I’m editing, right?

    Unless you have recently changed something in the CSS file that isn’t where the problem is.

    Take vkaryl’s advice and check the width of your pics and any extra long links in your sidebar. I’d put the chances at 80% that’s where the problem lays.
