Sidebar text widget size and position

  1. Hi, I'm using the Rubric theme for my blog, but whenever I add a widget the size of the text is much too large and it overlaps with my blog entries, e.g., if I add links they're so huge that they run into my entries. When I add the search widget the text box is positioned on the top blog entry. The funny thing is that when I click on an individual entry widget text is properly proportioned.

    Can anyone help?

  2. Only if you can put back the text widgets so we can see what is occuring. Just because my ex and her mother assumed that I could read minds doesn't mean I really can. :)

    Also what browser and version are you using?

  3. Hi,

    I've put some of the widgets back on. I'm using Internet Explorer Version 6.0.2800.1106


  4. Check out the widgets on the frontpage versus the widgets on one of the other pages

  5. I changed my blog to a different template. But I'm guessing the issue with the writing is probably down to a tag not being properly closed.

  6. Probably. I noticed that you use the more tags within your posts. Folks have previously had issues with open tags with the misplacement of the more tag. That might be the issue.

    If you deside to switch back, please let us know so we can take a look for you.

  7. You were right dr mike, it was the more tag causing the problem.

    What happened was that on my first and therefore bottom post, for some strange reason I had put an h2 tag around my more tag, and of course that meant only the open h2 tag was read -- which made everything h2 size. I removed the h2 tag from around the more tag and hey presto!
