Hi all,

On my homepage (blog page), I'm noticing that there is a chunk of space between the center column and the sidebar and I'm very uncertain as to how to get rid of it. Can you help? The page in question is http://www.customizedweddingcreations.com/blog/. I very much appreciate any help you can provide bearing in mind that I'm a novice at this. Thanks.

Cherin

Thank you. I did find that before, but when I adjusted the padding, it still didn't work right. I played around with it, but all that kept happening was everything would shift over (on the left behind my left sidebar). What am I doing wrong?

well how big have you defined your sidebar to be and what is the size in the info going in it?

The sidebar is set at 160, but I think the Flickr widget might be the issue. I'll take a look. Thanks so much for your help.

Make the sidebar bigger or the flicker content narrower

Juggledad,

I am having a similar problem.
The site I'm working on have a fixed layout of 1280px and I am trying to keep all the body content to 1101px.

Originally, I had the padding in Style Center Column set to 30px 69px 0 69px. I removed that, except for the top, but the chunk of space remains. Oddly, it is exactly 69px. I tried td#middle{padding-right:-69px} and td#right{padding-left:-69px}. Any ideas what it could be?

Running WP 3.04 and Atahualpa 3.5.3.
Thanks again,
Jason.

Sorry. litteacher.com, but I haven't figured out how to get it to show up on the multipost (body.blog) page without also showing up on the homepage, so at the moment, it is only on the single-post pages, like http://litteacher.com/do-you-speak-academia/.

That is indeed where it was. Thank you. That brings up a new issue though. While it filled in the space, the sidebar is still pushed our past the rest of the content and cutting the width in half even does not help.
  • Is there a way to align the right edge of the sidebar with right edge of the header? I was hoping that having the body content set to 1101px, that it would just subtract whatever the width of the sidebar happened to be.
  • Is it possible to only have that specific margin applied to body.blog and body.single?
  • Is it possible to have the bottom edge of the sidebar stop wherever the post content stops so that it does not continue to move downward?

Also the images in your left sidebar are wider than the sidebar which makes the margin between the left sidebar and the content less than on the right.

As can be seen at http://www.hdsoundlab.com/?page_id=20,

as an example, I have succeeded in injecting a right margin to the centre column on all pages, by defining a "inner right sidebar" of 100px that is invisible. Is there a more logic way to define a right margin ? I have tried to inject a margin-right at ato/.../ center column style, but regardles of padding/margin I specify here, I see no effect

The purpose is to avoid that the text of any page is "colliding" with the right sidebar. (Use google chrome for better view). Thanks!

add some left padding to the right sidebar (ato->RIGHT sidebar style) then ou could increase the size of the right sidebar to compensate, if you wanted to

Yes, but if I understand things correctly,this is not an optimal solution, because it creates a dependency between the background of the right sidebar (white in my case) and the background of the page (atahualpa blue with a tint of alpha). Inter alias, padding-left on right sidebar will maintain the "colliding effect". Or ?

Thus, I ask if right-margin is not working and if this is a bug?

Thanks!

The center area is a row of a table, the left and left-inner sidebars, center, right-inner and right sidebars are all cells in the table. you can't put padding on one part of a table cell. Your method of using the right-inner sidebar to get your padding is a good solution to do what you want.
