WP 3.0.4
Ata 3.6

http://colbystott.com

With the installation of 3.6 thing were changed (images gone, backgrounds gone, etc.), but some were fixed. Before, the height of the center area was the height of the sidebar and the footer started where the sidebar left off. Now there is a big gap between the sidebar and the footer. I searched through the options to try and find some kind of settings (like the max width) but I was not successful. Any suggestions?

thanks and cheers

it looks like you have set a background color for the WIDGETS, but not for the SIDEBAR as a whole. if you want a background for the sidebar, you have to have something set at ato->Style & configure SIDEBARS->RIGHT sidebar style

thanks, that makes sense and works. Is there a way to set the height of the page or center area so that it extends dynamically when more widgets are added to the side bar?

is there anywhere I can set how 'automatically' it does it? juggledad, I will assume you looked at my site because of the comment you made about color of the background. this has to do with the issues between Ata 3.6 and WP 3.0.4 as there were other issues I addressed earlier. before, the footer was up to the bottom of my last widget, my page wasnt as long vertically. I would like to reset it to what it was like before. is there a total sidebar height adjustment. I thought I might be able to write a line in ato->Style & configure SIDEBARS->RIGHT sidebar style, the same place I set the sidebar background color, I just dont know what to write.

any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Go to dashboard settings-reading and change the number of posts on the page and you will see the page get shorter.

If the space the posts take up is taller than the space the widgets take up, the extra space will show in the sidebars. If the sidebar widgets take more space than the posts, then the extra space shows under the posts.
