On my home page (which is set up just like your home page on the demo site), I used the 3 footer boxes, and when I put anything in the far right box, it causes the vertical lines of all 3 boxes to not reach the bottom, and you don??™t see the entire bottom horizontal line that closes out the 3 footer boxes... (problem is in IE version 7) (it works fine in Safari)

I can put anything into the first 2 fboxes, but I have to make sure nothing is in the 3rd one, and then the default ???Blog Archives??? shows up in that box, and then the lines are drawn right... Have you seen this before? I can reproduce this everytime, but I can??™t seem to solve it... I'd like to put the "Recent Posts" widget into this 3 fbox, but can't when it creates this bug in IE.

Attached are 2 screen shots, both with and without the bug, depending on if a widget is in that 3rd fbox or not...

The screen shots are attached already. Two of them. One showing the bug, one without. The bug one is the one that has "recent posts" in the 3rd feature box, and it shows how the vertical lines for all feature boxes don't reach the bottom, and the bottom line of the feature boxes doesn't show at all...

Strange. They show up on my screen here. I attached them to the post itself with image links... Here are the two urls for you to look at them if they are not showing up in this post:

Thanks. I hope you can fix this, since I would like to use a widget in the 3rd feature box, but cannot right now, since if there's any widget at all in the 3rd box, the bug happens.

ahhhh.. I see.

You have indeed found a bug.

There is a missing closing '>' on the div element for that dynamic sidebar.

to fix:
find this portion of code in 'sidebar-setup.php' :

and make sure it looks the same (add the closing >)
