Sidebar showing below the blog post
I am working on leothemarketer.com and the format of the full blog post pages are weird. The sidebar should be to the right of the post. However, it is actually showing up below the post even though there’s obviously room to the right. Here’s the link to the page I’m talking about; http://www.leothemarketer.com/2011/11/small-business-tip-what-makes-a-successful-small-business-owner/. I have been playing around with the stylesheet and the various php files. But I just can’t seem to figure it out. Please help me!
I have been playing around with the stylesheet and the various php files
You really should be doing this in a child theme. You probably deleted something from a php file that needs to be there. Josh has a good video on creating a child theme. I would recommend that you reinstall Graphene and then use a child theme to effect changes.
I used the page source feature of Firefox to check out how many div statements (opened or closed) there are in the content-main section of the blog post page. Thanks for the idea Josh! There were an odd number, so somewhere in there is where the problem lies. However, I can’t seem to narrow it down any further and I have no idea in what file the solution may lie. Can anyone help me with any ideas?
Okay, I don’t see any problems there. If you would like, you can provide me with a temp admin username and password and I will take a look at your text widgets.
You can use my contact form on the link below to send the info.
If you don’t feel comfortable sharing your site, you can take a look at each text widget and make sure the divs align properly.
What concerns me is in your original message you mention you were “playing around with various php files”. Are you SURE the only one you changed was the header.php?
Thanks for taking a look at that file. I took a look at the index, comments, page, sidebar, template-twocolumnsleft and loop .php files trying to find something that would give me a clue as to the problem. All these files are as they were originally loaded with the base theme.
I checked all the text widgets as was initially suggested here. Everything’s cool. Besides, the widgets work just fine on all the other pages; ie., the homepage and all the category pages.
I will set you up with a temp admin user id on the blog and send it to you as you instructed in a few minutes.
It is fixed. It was your “Facebook Like and Share Buttons” plugin.
For some reason, which I’m not going to look through the plugins code, it was throwing off your posts.
You only had the option to show on posts checked. This is why it was only affecting your “posts”.
I “unticked” the box but left the plugin installed. You can play around with it to see if you can get it working. Or you can simply uninstall the plugin and find a suitable replacement.
