  • I was just curious if anyone would care to help me out with a sidebar problem I’m having.

    My site is http://www.tellmealie.com/x/

    This was a CSS/XHTML template that I was practicing porting on. I got it working to an extent but the sidebar I cant get to go to the right. below is the css which is where I believe the problem lies. Let me know!

    /* CSS Document */

  • I found a little bit out about the problem but the problem is I cant get them to align next to one another ive been able to switch which one is in the correct location. It seems like a size problem but I dont see that in the css.

    <div id="page">
    <?php get_header(); ?>
    <img src="/images/head2.jpg" />
    <div id="body">
    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>
    <div id="post">
    <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    <?php the_date('','<h2>','</h2>'); ?></div>

    <div class="post" id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
    <h2><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
    <div class="meta"><?php _e("Filed under:"); ?> <?php the_category(',') ?> — <?php the_author() ?> @ <?php the_time() ?> <?php edit_post_link(__('Edit This')); ?>

    <?php the_content(__('(more...)')); ?>

    <div id="feedback">
    <?php wp_link_pages(); ?>
    <?php comments_popup_link(__('Comments (0)'), __('Comments (1)'), __('Comments (%)')); ?>
    <div id="ender"><?php comments_template(); // Get wp-comments.php template ?>
    <?php endwhile; else: ?></div>
    <p><?php _e('Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.'); ?></p>
    <div id="ender"><?php endif; ?></div>
    <div id="ender"><?php posts_nav_link(' — ', __('&laquo; Previous Page'), __('Next Page &raquo;')); ?></div>
    </P>
    </div>
    <?php get_footer(); ?>
    </div>

    to start with, you have no Doctype and errors within your page…fix those first and see where you go:
