Default I Could Be Crazy! Blog Design Issue


I was working on my blog today, and for no reason at all (I made no code changes), the right sidebar now is forced down below the content. Obviously, the right sidebar should be aligned to the top just below the header. This seems to be happening in both IE and Firefox.

Does anyone else see this, or know why? http://thesmallmerchant.com/

Thanks for any assistance!! Nick

Default alignment


I just checked it out and on my PC the right side is all the way down after the text content.
No new downloads took place autmatically to any software you are using to create this did it? It wierd if you didnt' make any code changes. I am not a web design expert my any means but software updates was the only thing I could think of.

Good luck I am sure someone here will have the answer.

the only thing I notice is the bidvertizer ad is forcing the horizontal scrollbar to the right in my resolution

Did you publish any new content in between the time the blog was working correctly and the time you noticed the display issue? If so, you might have run into an "overflow" situation.

I've had that happen to me on several occasions. In some instances, it wasn't really an "overflow" (in that you could see all the text in the content block and it didn't appear to be hanging over the "edge" of the div) but it turned out that italicized text was causing the browser to think it was past the edge.

Here's an article that explains a bit more. Might or might not be applicable, but I offer the link just in case.

Good luck! Debugging stuff like this can be a bear.

this can happen if you put in an image that is too wide.
The max image size I can put into one of my blogs is 400 pixels. If I put one in that is 401 then my sidebar ends up at the bottom.
Check this out.
