Sidebar

Best Answer lroberts00 , 28 August 2013 - 07:16 PM

I figured it out.  One of my shortcode plugins was making it drop to the bottom?  I needed some text to be two columed so I used a shortcode to make them two collums.

Hmm...any thoughts?

Can someone tell me why my sidebar is not on the left side, but all the way down at the bottom, I can't figure it out?

It didn't work.  I am assuming you mean go into Site Options/Layout Editor and change the width of the sidebar that way correct?  If I do that it screws up the homepage? ...the home page is the only page that the sidebar is working correctly?  The hopepage is set to default layout and the other pages where the sidebar is screwing up are set to Template 1. 

 

What could be wrong? Thanks for your help.

Do the widths of the columns as Batman pointed out, all told, add to 12? This somewhat best describes the way columns work:

I am not using DMS.  I've never seen the screen shot Batman gave.

As you're using the Framework, you could use a content box in the sidebar and use the responsive grid shortcodes to make the text into columns within that contentbox. This would be a good alternative to using the plugin you had, and will keep the item within the sidebar so the spacing doesn't force it to drop below.

 

A guide on using the grid shortcodes for the framework can be found at -

Simply paste your text into the contentbox you positioned in the sidebar, then wrap the text in your shortcode for the required widths of the column.

When a sidebar is pushed down below the content area, there's two things that could be the cause.

 

1.  Something in the content area is too wide, and pushes the content area too far to the right, pushing (literally) the sidebar to the next available space wide enough to accommodate it.

2.  The same scenario, but with something too wide in the sidebar.  You have to examine what's in these areas that could be causing something to be too wide, such as a fixed width element, or an image with a fixed setting.
