    Hi there,

    I’m building my first WordPress site and while I’ve got most things working well (thanks to the great threads on here!) but am having trouble with one major thing that I can’t find a similar thread on that has a solution I can use so hopefully someone can help me here.

    I’m using the Twenty Thirteen theme and want to add a widgets to the sidebar/secondary widget area. Unfortunately, when I add a widget my layout for the main content goes crazy and squashes it all up to the left. Here’s an image showing what I mean:

    <img src=”http://www.prettyconfused.co.uk/misc/wpfail.gif” />
    image

    I’ve tried playing with the CSS for the sidebar and tried some php editing after reading another post with a similar problem to no avail.

    Can anyone help ne with this? I’m sure it Must be something simple I’m missing but I’ve spent a few hours on it now and really need some help.

    can you post a live link to your site to illustrate the issue?

    does this happen with an unedited Twenty Thirteen and all plugins deactivated?

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    Here’s the site:

    I’m not sure if it was working without plugins and before adding the child theme though, sorry.

    Is that something I can check without destroying the setup of my site so far?

    The numbers represent TOP, RIGHT, BOTTOM, LEFT.
    Adjust to your liking.

    .sidebar .entry-header {
       padding: 0 376px 0 60px;
    }

    Incredible, thank you! 😀

    Thanks for the great info here.

    I’m using the same theme and would like to have a widget show only on the landing page and not the others. Does anyone know of a CSS snippet to could make this possible? Right now, whatever you put in the secondary widget area shows on all pages through out the site.

    Thanks in advance.
