Support » Fixing WordPress » Sidebar overlapping text

  • Hi!

    I’m fairly new to WordPress, and just finished switching over the blog portion of my website. Everything was working fine until today when I started adding new sidebar widgets. Any time I have an active widget in the sidebar (“secondary area”) the post width increases, such that the sidebar covers some of the text. If I remove the widget, the sidebar disappears as it’s supposed to, and the text (oddly), shrinks in width to where it should be when the sidebar is active.

    I left one widget in the sidebar, to show what I mean by overlap.

    I’ve combed through all sorts of resources, but have had no luck.

    Any help for a noob?

    somehow caused by the styles of the ‘feedburner follow me’ plugin;

    where did you get that plugin from?

    as this does not seem to be from, please contact the plugin’s developer for support.

    Thank you so much!!!

    The plugin was just one that I found searching within my wordpress dashboard; it was one of a few that came up.

    I’ve deleted the plugin, and while that didn’t solve the problem immediately, I overwrote my child style.css with a back-up copy and the problem seems to be fixed.

    Rather than bother going through the developer, I’ll just select a different plugin to use; it’s not worth the effort to me to accommodate someone’s code when I basically pulled it out of a hat. I’ll definitely be more careful in the future.

    Thanks again for your quick and straight-forward assistance!
