    i want to change from default theme to classic, and i started tweaking classic right away. however, i somehow changed the margins/something for my main entry column because my sidebar has moved to the bottom of the page. It was fine yesterday, but now it's moved. This is the case on all computers, and it isn't a Word-posting issue. What exactly did I manipulate change in the stylesheet to make this happen? I can't for the life of me remember. SOS!!

    I've had that problem, and it's very frustrating. It's due to the width of the main block + the side block being too wide for the screen. Even one pixel too wide will cause that. Borders and margins are *included* in that total width.

    One sort-of easy way to tackle it is to reduce the width on either main or side by some huge amount, and see if they're side by side again. If yes, then that's the problem. Go through and especially check margins carefully. Since they're hard to visualize, they're usually the source of the problem.

    If not, then you may have somehow deleted a closing </div>. It can be a real bear to find the culprit div in that case.

    Hope this helps.
