I am self hosting, new to WordPress and I am not sure why the positioning of such things as the search box, recent posts and categories are underneath the comment box. The icon for the search box is in the top left of Twenty Thirteen theme and the box is on the bottom of the opening page.
Same look on my hosted server as is on the local install.
Could someone suggest the steps needed to align these widgets on the sidebar?
I know it is a pretty simple question but there is quite a bit to learn and I am not sure what to google in order to get things off on the right footing.
Thanks in advance,
