    Thee is probably something that is contained in either your content section of the sidebar that creates the problem.

    Considering you have no images in the content section it’s most likely in the sidebar. check the length of your links.

    Do you mean the lenth of the URL’s or the lenght of the link names that apper in the menu? How would this cause the sidebar to fall to the bottom?

    In the below blog entry code can anyone see anything that could be causing the page layout to go crazy?

    <div /><img width=”173″ height=”167″ border=”0″ alt=”” src=”” style=”margin: 0pt 0pt 10px 10px; float: right; cursor: pointer; width: 173px; height: 167px;” />

    If you’ve had a baby and stayed in a hospital, chances are you’ve marveled at the nurses’ aptitude for swaddling. Babies usually spend the first days of their lives wrapped up tight, courtesy of the nurses. Then, you get home and despite having paid attention to frequent demonstrations (in the midst of post-partum haziness), you discover that swaddling is quite a bit like origami, and it takes a lot of practice to get it right. So you try harder. And you notice that your baby sleeps really well when she’s swaddled, but she inevitably breaks loose and wakes up. As it turns out, swaddling offers excellent protection against a baby’s startle reflex, which, aside from hunger, is the most likely suspect when an infant wakes.

    Swaddle blankets have become increasingly popular, and the designs continue to improve. The newest option is the Swaddleaze, which is a clever and elegant solution that is so incredibly obvious that many parents will mutter (like my husband did), “Now why didn’t I think of that?”

    Basically, it’s a super-soft sleep sack with an extra flap of fabric that can be wrapped around the baby’s arms and fastened in back with a wide strip of velcro to create a snug swaddle. Or, for babies who have outgrown a full swaddle, and prefer to have their arms out, just wrap the extra flap around the baby’s torso and use it as a sleep sack.

    The Swaddleaze was developed by Heather Allard, a mother of two. Her company, 2 Virtues, is named after her daughters, Hope and Grace. I’ve heard some rave reviews of this product, and I’m excited that we will be the first store in Massachusetts to carry it.<div />

    got it, the div tags. This was making my page push the side bar down.

    caitlin1202: You must have understood something.
    This is *not* your WordPress blog, which means your last entry is regarded as spam and when the harsh Moderator comes along – ayayay!

    saintmoz: Getting the sidebar to move down under the main page area containing the posts, means something is wrong with your theme. A good guess would be that the area containing the posts ( with class=”primary” ) lacks a style rule of float:left;

    Looking into your style.css there seem to be no rules at all.
    However you also link in another stylesheet sample.css containing the rules you really use. You should check that the 500 pixels used for your primary class and the 26% you use for the secondary class, i.e. the sidebar plus all margins and paddings fit into the 786 pixels you use for the whole page.

    Alternatively you could try to upgrade your theme. The theme ( still in beta ) is presented here with some warnings:
    And take a look at their demo page where the sidebar behaves:

    Note that it is said to work on WP 2.0

    And just for the record: we do not support K2 here. K2 isn’t a theme – it is a modification of WP (you can read it on its main page before download!).
    The official support site is here:

    Ah! 🙂
