Sidebar placement

  1. Why is my sidebar showing up at the bottom of my blog?

    The blog I need help with is the-sweat-life.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
    Formatting
    _ WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically
    "save changes"

  3. When I view my blog in the "customized" way the sidebar does show up on the right like it is supposed too. Ugh!

  4. Oh pardon me but I missed the fact that this is a CSS question and not a support question. This thread will be moved to the CSS Forum for you. Please do NOT create a duplicate thread.

  5. Then your customizations are the problem.

  6. So what needs to be changed?

  7. Neirther raincoaster nor I help with CSS editing issues. You will have to wait for another Volunteer or Staff to assist you.

  8. Hi thesweatlifee, I checked your blog and see that you do not have any custom CSS on your site right now. The sidebar looks fine to me, so this sounds like it may actually be an issue with your web browser.

    Can you confirm what browser and version you are using? If you aren't sure, you can check here: http://supportdetails.com/

    You can also download the latest version of popular browsers here: http://browsehappy.com/

    If you are using Internet Explorer, please also make sure you have Compatibility Mode turned off: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/internet-explorer/use-compatibility-view

    If your blog's sidebar still looks wrong to you, can you give us a screenshot of what you are seeing? You can upload screenshots to your Media Library under Media > Add New in your dashboard, or you can use an online service such as Snaggy. Thanks!
