    HI there

    Re: Corona Theme

    Not sure why but all of a sudden the sidebar on the homepage and the inner pages is showing half way down the page. I was due to update to wp3.3 so I did but that hasn’t helped. The site is located here:

    If you could please let me know what the problem is as soon as possible, that would be great.




    sorry wordpress 3.3.1 i updated to.


    It seems to be only happening in Firefox. I downloaded the latest firefox update but still happening. Chrome and IE appears fine. Not sure what is going on but please offer your advice asap.

    Thank you in anticipation.


    So much for support. I had to pay someone to fix this problem for me. Very disappointed about receiving no help here.



    I’m really sorry that I couldn’t help out with this issue. The other support guy just skipped his shifts this week and I can’t handle all support requests alone…


    Btw, im still having same exact issue.

    FireFox. Menu – somewhere dooown below its normal place.



    I couldn’t reproduce the menu bug with Firefox 10:

    The sidebar displays properly too. Please try to deactivate all browser plugins – maybe one causes the flaw.



    I’m having the same problem as Karen re: Corona Theme. I am using WordPress 3.4.2 and my website went live on Wednesday Yesterday, the right sidebar in the blog and the left sidebar on all of the pages under About both started coming up below the content rather than at the side.

    On Chrome, they are both below, on IE, the sidebar on the blog is covering the paragraph image at the top and the left sidebar on the About pages looks fine.

    I don’t know what I’ve done as it happened without adding new plugins or changing anything. I’m not sure if this is related, but in the backend in the Template Builder, the place to add new templates (main content on the right) is also showing below the template names on the left.

    Please help!! Thank, Siobhan


    Hi Siobhan,

    It looks like your custom.css is no longer loading in. Try checking to see if it somehow got altered or deleted on your server in the theme files>css>custom.css

    This would explain the issues with the sidebar since it looks like the sidebar should be lower on the blog page (a margin-top: 200px on the class .sidebar_right) .

    Since the About page is unaltered, the normal theme css is loading and isn’t causing any issues that I can see. I’m not getting the sidebar actually pushing down below the page content on my end, but it could be just a difference in local cache and the difference in the missing stylesheet so check that out first.




    Hi Devin,

    Thanks for your response.

    I’ve had a look in the CSS and it’s all there and nothing seems to have been altered – all of the colours, font, sizes etc are all in there and nothing else has been affected.

    This is the CSS section on sidebars – can you see anything out of place?

    .sidebar {

    overflow: hidden;

    position: relative;

    width: 259px;

    float: left;

    padding: 0px 0 10px 30px;


    .fullwidth .sidebar{



    .fullwidth .sidebar_right.sidebar{





    position: relative;

    overflow: hidden;

    padding:30px 0 30px 0;



    .sidebar .widget{


    .widget li, .widget a{



    .sidebar .widget{


    .sidebar .widget:first-child{


    border-top: none;


    .sidebar .widget:last-child{

    border-bottom: none;


    The About page sidebar on Chrome is below on the left hand side still and the same with the blog. Not quite sure what to do next!

    Thanks, Siobhan


    Try re uploading it on the server or check its permissions. If you can’t pull it up here: then neither can your website which is why the visual issues are happening I believe.




    Hi Devan,

    I’ve re-uploaded it onto the FTP server and now you can see it on this link but nothing has changed.

    Strangely it seems to be fine when I’m on a MAC and on Chrome but not from a PC – do you know why this might be?

    Can you offer any other coding advice that might help? As I mentioned before the right hand side of the Theme template builder has also been pushed below, so could this be a viewing glitch in the theme?

    Many thanks, Siobhan


    Hey Siobhan,

    I’m still not getting any errors but the link you’ve provided there is using the themes actual style.css content and has had the line that says “don’t remove this” removed. There really is no need to be loading that entire style.css file again inside of the custom.css.

    For an example, this is the demo’s custom.css without any new css added to it:




    Thanks Devan. It turned out to be an issue with Chrome on my laptop, so I reinstalled it and seems fine now. Thanks for your help!


    Hi Siobhan,

    Glad that Devin helped you. :)
