I’ve been adding content to pages – no problems. I added a couple of posts – again no problem I thought, until I go to the post page. The widgets aren’t over on the right hand side, they’re appearing at the bottom of the post – after the social buttons and the comment box – just above the footer.
On index page and other pages the widgets are behaving themselves properly.
I also notice on the slider (news slideshow) that the image area is clickable but the sidebar – although the link name shows up – is not.

Weird. I don’t see that smiley on my screen.
I have removed every widget except the “recent posts” on the blog sidebar and it’s still appearing at the base of the post.
Additionally – what about that link from the slider sidebar – should that be live?

OK – excuse the frequent updates but I’ve just found that the smiley is from the WordPress stats plug-in. Have disabled it but still have the widgets appearing at the bottom of posts so it wasn’t that.September 13, 2010 at 6:27 am #34012September 13, 2010 at 7:38 am #34013
I compared your css to standard css and couldn’t find any difference – the only difference I noticed is that your “Recent Posts” are listed with two symbols. As you can see here in this demo: http://www.kriesi.at/themes/newscast/ there should be only one list symbol per item.
Maybe that’s the reason.

That’s kind of frustrating. I don’t see how it’s recent posts though – it happens with any widget. Unless you’ve got any other ideas I suppose I’m going to have to re-install?September 13, 2010 at 8:33 am #34015
Yes I think this is the best way to solve your problem. Backup your themes directory, delete it on the server and upload a fresh copy of your theme.

Right, I’ve narrowed it down to messing around with single.php to remove the “about the author” info box – which I don’t want.
If I remove this:
<div class=’entry’ id=”author-box”>
$author_email = get_the_author_email();
echo get_avatar( $author_email, $size = ’60’);
<h3><?php _e(‘About the author’,’newscast’); ?></h3>
$description = get_the_author_description();
if($description != ”)
_e(‘The author didnt add any Information to his profile yet’,’newscast’);
It all goes horribly wrong… but if I remove the two </div> left behind, it’s fine.
Told you I wasn’t a coder – but at least I figured it out in the end. What do those </div> things do then?
