Widget problems in right sidebar

  • SJBaily


    Site is at http:www.marlissmelton.com.

    The right-hand sidebar, whether on home page or on other pages is losing its styling after about the third widget. Doesn’t matter if I take them out and add new ones or rearrange them. After about the third one down, plus search bar, then the widget is unstyled and wraps under the main column under whatever is there, either blog on home page or page content on other pages.

    I’ve tried disabling and even deleting plugins. I’ve tried changing width of columns.

    I can’t figure this out.





    What newsletter plugin do you use?



    Aha! Thank you. I took your point and deleted the newsletter signup widget and everything went back to normal. It’s not a plugin. It’s from the author’s newsletter company and what they asked me to use:

    <div id="mab_embedded">
    <form action="http://www.MyAuthorBiz.com/utils/enews_subscribe.php?author=marlissmelton.com" method="post" name="mab_embedded_form" class="validate" target="_blank" novalidate>
    <H2>Subscribe to my Newsletter</H2>
    <div><input type="text" class="text asterisk" name="mab_email" value="" placeholder="* email address" required/></div>
    <div class="required_field"><span class="asterisk">*</span> required field</div>
    <div><input type="hidden" name="mab_required" value="mab_email,"/></div>
    <input type="submit" class="mab_button" value="Subscribe" name="subscribe"/></div>
    <!-- End MyAuthorBiz Subscribe Form -->

    I think there may be an extra div at the end.

    Thanks so much!!

    There is is a missing opening <div> tag just before the last <input> tag.

    Put code in between backtick (


    ) characters. It’s usually located above the Tab key on your keyboard.



    Got it, thanks!!
