Sidebar is pushed to bottom

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I updated to platform pro 1.6 after creating a child theme. Unfortunately my sidebar is being pushed down below the content on my main blog page -  shackvalley 

If I click to view the individual blog post, the sidebar is in the correct location.

 

-My layout editor is currently working after being dead for some time.

-I have made enough space in layout editor to accommodation all that is in the sidebar.

-I have deactivated and deleted any plug-ins that changed recently including AddThis

 

Thanks for any input. I know this is an old version and I hope to update to frameworrks when possible.

Dave

Hi Dave

 

I'm looking through in firebug but can't see anything that would cause this, have you made any css edits to the sidebar or main content area? Anything which would adjust the padding/margins etc.

 

If you switch from the child theme back to the main theme does the sidebar go back into place?


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

Firebug is showing errors on the page, but it won't let me see what they are as the script debugger keeps closing itself when it tries to look into it. 

 

If you could dump the cache file inside supercache, and then disable it so we can see the live page.

 

Also deactivate all other third party plugins and we'll take a look to see if that error shows up anymore.

No css edits. Once the layout editor was working again I enlarged the sidebar are to allow more room. 

 

No luck switching back and and forth between child and parent.

 

I'll clear cache and deactivate all 3rd party plugins.

Thanks

Ok let us know when you do and we'll have another look.

 

As a test, create a new page with a sidebar layout and see if that displays correctly. 

 

If it does then assign that page to be the blog/homepage in settings>reading and see if it still has the sidebar at the side with the posts on the page or if it moves.

Cache should be cleared out and all plugins deactivated.

 

I'll go ahead and make a new page.

 

I appreciate the help!

New home page seems to come up fine. If you assign the posts to it does it change? Maybe something got corrupted on the original blog page?

I created a test page...no luck. 

 

What's interesting is selecting "previous entries" at the bottom of the main blog page - it will take you to the correct layout.

 

I had to restart my askimet plug in - amazing amount of spam overnight.

Hi,

 

The only way this issue can be caused is by invalid HTML on one of your posts that has an unclosed <div> or has a closed </div> which shouldn't be there. When you click on your previous posts link the issue is resolved. Therefore, the issue is definitely on one of the posts on the first blog page.


I recommend you go through each of your posts and review any custom HTML you have added.

OK. I'll narrow it down by either reducing the number of post per page, or returning post to draft status.

 

 Umm, errr, how do I edit the HTML?

 

Thanks!

To view the HTML code on your posts, you will need to go to Wordpress Admin Dashboard > Posts > Select a Post and then on the editor, in the top right hand corner. You should see two tabs, one called Visual the other Text. Click the text tab and if there is HTML on the post, you will see it.

I reduced the number of post per page to (1) under Settings > Reading. The sidebar has reappeared for every post. One post is is completely empty however (no text, no pictures). I assume this post is the culprit.

I've been looking through the html photo links within post...nothing unusual...at least to me. Maybe I'll delete and redo?

Thanks. You've given me hope!

I think the best thing to do if possible is for you to delete this post, like you said and start again and see if this resolves your issue.

      I have to say that I like the Layout and the Template based sections. Some of them are really impressive.
      One of the things that I would like to request though is the possibility of being able to dynamically rearrange the layout.
      An example of what I am talking about is take the Agency Section. It's current layout starts with the
      Splash Module then the Portfolio Module then the Service Module and so on and so forth.
      What would be great is if we were able to move these modules around. I.e have the Service Module first
      then maybe the Splash, and then the portfolio.

      Hi,
      Is is possible to have different layouts for different Post categories? We have Blog posts, News posts and Case studies that all are posts, but is it possible to differentiate their layouts?
      So far when I change a post layout it affects all Post type pages. Could it be done somehow with creating a separate template? 
      Examples below

      Although my layout in edit view is correct, when I look at the page the layout is wrong. I have moved the sections around and the layout remains the same when I view it. Im using 
       PageLines Platform 5 - v5.0.162 running a Pageline theme &  Wordpress version 4.6.1
      The page is http://kwamedawes.com/speak-from-here-to-there-the-dialogue/ the section order is incorrect. and
      http://kwamedawes.com/speak-from-here-to-there-the-poems/ top section is laid out like the bottom section, but displays as shown.
       
      Thanks for any help.

      I am having an issue with the size of the font in a text box widget on my sidebar. It has me completely baffled because I have two text widgets on my sidebar and the other one is displaying perfectly. 
      The sole difference between the two is the amount of text in the widget, but that can't be the problem.
      My site is: loveandnudes.com and the text widgets are on the right side at the top. 
      I have duplicated the one with the issue and I am fiddling with it right now to see if I can find a solution. But I would love any suggestions. I though CSS would do the trick, but either I tried the wrong thing - or I put it into the wrong place.
      Thanks for your help!
