    I am using the Delicacy theme. Today, my right sidebar fell to the bottom of the page and I can't figure out how to fix it. Any ideas? Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is blog.atopalm.com.

  2. Sidebars and widgets in them do not fall to the bottom and display below posts and/or posts do not appear in sidebars unless

    (1) content has been imported into the blog

    (2) the blogger has been copying and pasting content from elsewhere, without using either icon 5 or icon 6 in Row 2 of the visual editor http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#pasting-text

    (3) or the blogger has copied and pasted invalid HTML into a text widget or left an HTML tag open

    Go here and enable this > Settings > Writing

    _ WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically
    "save changes"

    timethief, thank you so much! The link you posted helped me figure it out in about two minutes. Thanks again!

  4. Mine is doing this and I've been through all the suggestions in the links above to no avail.

    Only thing I've done differently is change my theme from Ocean Mist to Yoko :-/

    You're welcome.

    Hi there. I'm sorry but you will have to wait for a fully sighted and long suffering Volunteer or Staff to go through your blog and read the source code to find the problem for you and tell you how to resolve it. I'm visually challenged so I don't provide that service.

  6. @curvyhiker: Your sidebars are fine (only you've added redundant widgets). You're probably viewing your blog in a low resolution screen or mobile device. Yoko has a "responsive" layout: it changes to adapt to different screens. Below a certain width the one sidebar falls below the other, and below another certain width they both become footer areas.

    Thanks guys - I seem to have inadvertently fixed it!
    I didn't realise 'Sidebar 2' had any widgets in it at all (only 1 sidebar on my previous theme)...until I spotted the tiny 'expand' arrow, and then exposed all the duplicated widgets in Sidebar 2.
    So, I've emptied Sidebar 2, and now all my sidebar items are just shown once, on the side, where I want them :-)
    Thanks again.
