Sidebar problem: Right moves to left, left moves to middle (5 posts)

    I have a pretty basic site set up with few modifications done to the original template. Everthing looks fine, but if you click on the title of a post to read it by itself, the right sidebar moves to the left sidebar position, and the left sidebar moves to the middle, under the comment box. Here's what I mean:

    This is what it's supposed to look like -


    But if you click on any of the post titles, it looks like this:


    Not only have the sidebars shifted, but the footer has moved to the right sidebar position.

    I can't for the life of me figure this out.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Please look at the structure in the file that shows single post (single.php)
    your right sidebar is a child of your left sidebar.
    there are a lot of other errors on the pages:

    So this is a problem with the original template?

    I'm assuming that having the right sidebar as a child of the left is a bad thing, right? How difficult is it to separate the two?

    Thanks for pointing out all the errors. I guess if I want to stick with this template, I have my work cut out for me.

    if you haven't changed the php files, the problem is with the original template.
    If you want to change the right/left structure, just look at the structure of index.php.
    Or you could go for another template. :-(

    Problem solved! The template was missing a </div> immediately before the <?php get_sidebar(); ?>.

    That's it.

    I guess my assumption that WordPress templates were fully cooked and ready for consumption was incorrect!
