I have two sidebars configured in Newscast but the far right sidebar is being moved down to the end of some of the posts. On my Mac with Firefox 14.0.1 it only happens on a few posts, but other people have told me it’s happening on the whole site for them, including the home page. Here’s a post where the problem shows up on my browser : http://www.feasta.org/2011/11/15/in-memorium-richard-douthwaite/ .
Any idea what could be wrong? Thanks for your attention.August 1, 2012 at 7:10 am #85401
There’re a lot of html coding errors on your page: http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.feasta.org%2F2011%2F11%2F15%2Fin-memorium-richard-douthwaite%2F&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0 (omitted closing tags, missing divs, etc.) which cause this issue. Please fix all “element xy omitted errors”.August 2, 2012 at 2:57 am #85402
Thanks for your quick reply, Dude. I corrected the omitted closing tags using the link you provided but didn’t spot any missing divs. I think the problem must be related to divs though, because I tried adding a </div> closing tag to the end of the last widget on the first sidebar, and that corrected the problem in this page. However, on other pages it made the second sidebar go right down to the end, so I took the </div> away again.
I also looked for discrepancies in the <div> tags on single.php and sidebar.php, but couldn’t see any.August 2, 2012 at 9:15 am #85403
I checked your site (including the other pages in the main menu) and the problem seems to be fixed. The two sidebars are placed on the right. Is this issue resolved now? if not, can you post the link of some specific pages that still has this issue?

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. The problem did seem to be solved for a little while there…but now it’s back! See here for example: http://www.feasta.org/2012/08/06/a-complexity-approach-to-sustainability-theory-and-application-review/ .
I haven’t changed anything other than correcting the errors that Dude suggested I correct.August 9, 2012 at 8:49 am #85405
