single post page pushing sidebar out of page width

  1. I'm a complete to newbie when it comes to php and unfortunately, what I do know is self-taught Help

    I've recently started migrating my site over to WordPress and everything is fine except for the single post script. At first it errored out at the bottom for "similar posts" due to this code:

    <div class="similiar">
    <h2>Related Posts</h2>
    <?php similar_posts(); ?>

    And as a result, wasn't showing my sidebar at all (called at the bottom of the page).

    I removed the above code and now the sidebar shows again, but its pushed way out to the right, outside of the page width. I know its got to be on this single post page somewhere because the index and page templates work fine.

    Here's the code:

    <?php get_header(); ?>
    <div id="content">

    <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>

    <div class="post" id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
    <h2>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link: <?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></h2>

    <?php the_content('<p class="serif">Read the rest of this entry »</p>'); ?>

    <?php wp_link_pages(array('before' => '<p>Pages: ', 'after' => '</p>', 'next_or_number' => 'number')); ?>

    You can leave a response, or " rel="trackback">trackback from your own site.

    <?php } elseif (!('open' == $post-> comment_status) && ('open' == $post->ping_status)) {
    // Only Pings are Open ?>
    Responses are currently closed, but you can " rel="trackback">trackback from your own site.

    <?php } elseif (('open' == $post-> comment_status) && !('open' == $post->ping_status)) {
    // Comments are open, Pings are not ?>
    You can skip to the end and leave a response. Pinging is currently not allowed.

    <?php } elseif (!('open' == $post-> comment_status) && !('open' == $post->ping_status)) {
    // Neither Comments, nor Pings are open ?>
    Both comments and pings are currently closed.

    <?php } edit_post_link('Edit this entry.','',''); ?>



    <?php comments_template(); ?>

    <?php endwhile; else: ?>

    <p>Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.</p>

    <?php endif; ?>

    </div><!--/post -->

    </div><!--/content -->

    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>

    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    Does anything just jump out at anyone?

    Thanks for your help!
