Sidebars correct in Firefox, incorrect in Chrome

  • # April 22, 2013 at 7:56 pm

    Using a WordPress theme from Studio Press/Genesis. The theme has an optional sidebar which in Firefox is correctly rendered, on the side of the page. The sidebar in Chrome is in the wrong place, displaying under the page content.

    Any thoughts on how to fix this?

    look here: http://www.hotcoffeedev.com/faithtemp3 and look at the Mission Statement page in Chrome; in Chrome I’m seeing the sidebar under the content; look at it in Firefox, the sidebar is on the right side where it is supposed to be

    thanks all; sidebar as in on the side, right side in this case; don’t know how to send screen shots here but at least in my OS X the side bar is on the right side where it is supposed to be *only in Firefox; in Chome and Safari it’s under the page content, above the footers; I downloaded a fresh copy of Chrome;

    so what would you do if you were me?

    I’m seeing the second ‘sidebar’ under the content in both FF & Chrome.

    As Crocodillon said…it’s in the footer in the HTML…but I’m guessing it shouldn’t be.

    thanks all, interesting that IE got it right :/
    it’s a WordPress site so the HTML is not so accessible to the non-php hacker like me

    What is the width of your sidebar. Maybe reduce it a few pixels. I imagine that you are using a fixed width?
    And I think padding renders differently between the two.
    Or try reducing the size of your content and it should pop back in to place.
    Sorry I’m on the road so I can’t really play with it.
