My setup is to have in Sidebar 1 two Sidebars: Primary Sidebar Universal Sidebar My templates are such that on the Blog home page, Universal Sidebar is hidden and Primary Sidebar is shown. On Pages, I have the inverse of this true. Primary Sidebar is set to be hidden Universal Sidebar is shown The issue at hand is that when you have stacked Sidebars such as this and have the top sidebar set to be hidden, there is about 10px worth of space being 'taken up' by it's position. Meaning that the Universal sidebar (in my example) should be (I thought) in the exact space that the Primary sidebar use to be in. make sense?

Okay, I think the best workaround would be to place everything in ONE sidebar and then set it to show on ALL pages and then detail to me which widgets should be where and I can write up a little conditional CSS. Thanks, Bryan

With my setup, the best way was to simply adjust the CSS for the Sidebar Universal, I removed the padding on top. This will only work if you don't use two sidebars on the same page. Works for me since I have the Primary and Universal stacked. Primary on Home Page only, then the lower Universal on all other pages.... #sidebar-wrap #sidebar_universal{ padding: 0em 1em 0 1em; }
