    Hi guys, please excuse if this is not the appropriate place to ask.

    Basically I'm stuck and I don't know enough about CSS to get unstuck :ermm:

    I'm trying to customise WordPress for the news section of a website I'm working on. To do this, I just made a copy of the generic 'Kubrick' theme, and changed around the stylesheet and images to make it look how I want.

    My problem is that I've changed some things and now the sidebar won't appear at the side, it's pushed right down the bottom after the posts! I think this happened after I shifted stuff over to make way for the navigation on the left.

    Check out the site here: http://www.ryder.net.au/news
    (excuse the scrappiness, it's a work in progress )

    The CSS here: http://ryder.net.au/news/wp-content/...yder/style.css
    And if it matters, the original Kubrick CSS: http://ryder.net.au/news/wp-content/...ault/style.css

    So what do I need to change to get it back up there at the side? I feel like a simpleton...
    - gah!

    Should have added to that - I'm viewing it using Safari 1.3.2

    Just looked at it in Firefox, and the sidebar is roughly where it needs to be...
    - gah!

    All of your menu stuff is defined in <div id="Table_01">

    I think you need to float it left:

    #Table_01 {
    background: url('images/menubg.jpg') no-repeat;
    width:132px;
    height:308px;
    float:left;
    }



    The right column might be dropping because of another
    missing float:left, or it physically can't fit in your narrow
    defined page width. You would have to make the content
    part really narrow to make it fit. I know you're trying to
    eliminate the horizontal scroll on an 800 pixel browser, but
    most people don't have those anymore.

    I realize you're trying to create a "band/music" site with
    non-standard colors and such. You'll have to pay special
    attention to font type, size, and colors to make things
    readable. This also poses a special problem when printing.

    Being creative takes a bit more effort in design than using
    a boring Web2.0 Joomla-type template. For a beginner though,
    keeping it simple might be a bit less frustrating.
