Sidebar displaced way down low on first post and first month's archive page

  • digitalsingularity


    I have my blog set to two columns, with the sidebar on the right. The sidebars display normally on all pages except two: the very first post in the blog, and the monthly archive for the first month that the blog existed. They’re pushed way down below the main content column, along with the footer and comment field. Help?

    I clicked “older posts” three times and didn’t get there. That’s my clicking limit. Please include a couple of links and I’ll be happy to take a look.



    It seems you’ve added “About NEON Notes” widget in footer widget area. So it is showing the widget after the content in all pages except homepage.

    But, I think you’ve enabled the alternate front page sidebar widget area, and added this widget to the same. So, it is showing “About NEON Notes” widget in the sidebar on homepage.

    Your block-button looks weird on single pages. Try this,

    .block-button, .block-button:visited, .Button {
    bottom: 0;
    position: relative !important;



    Kenneth: here are the pages with wonky sidebars:, The homepage and individual posts all have normal sidebars.



    Prasana: thanks for the block-button fix, but it makes the “continue reading” button extend the entire width of each post! I disabled the button on single pages for now and went back to the old positioning CSS. I think what I really need to do is style the sharing plugin so that the spacing comes out right in the excerpts on the front page.

    And the “About NEON Notes” widget is indeed supposed to appear in the footer on single pages, but the entire sidebar is also displaced below the footer on the pages I’m talking about: I’m beginning to think it has something to do with this hello-world post. Does Graphene do anything special with that page? I didn’t create this blog, I just moved it; but I usually delete the hello-world post in new WordPress blogs, so I’m not sure what might be weird about it.

    That’s just a sample post that WordPress throws in to show people what a post looks like. No, Graphene doesn’t do anything with it, and yes, you really should delete it. (It’s a post, btw, not a page–there is a difference in WP.)

    I’m not sure what else is happening here, but there is definitely something wonky with the comment form on this post: and on this page: There is a “Submit comment” button on the bottom right corner that is way out of place and the comment form is way too wide. It appears you are using a child theme. Take a look at what is in your functions.php file?.

    It’s possible that whoever created the blog probably did something weird with the functions file. You might to try replacing it (via FTP) with a fresh copy and seeing if that gets rid of your issues.

    I’m pressed for time, would really love to look more carefully at this.
