Tackle it Tuesday - fixing my sidebar

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

My tackle (actually since Friday) has been to fix my sidebar. As you can see --->>> it is gone. It has slipped to the bottom. This used to happen in the old Blogger quite a lot but is the first time since switching that it's happened here.

Internet Explorer some versions can view - I am also on IE and I can't see. Safari (Karen-pediascribe) can't see either.

So far I have:
1. removed the Organise your Wardrobe section, and added it back
2. gone into the Timer post (that I suspected resulted in the sidebar issue) and
3. compressed the pictures further
4. removed all links (in case it was a long link)
5. deleted the post

Nothing worked!

Then when I was reading some help forums some people said it fixed itself when they changed templates, so last night I tried to change to each of the other templates and ...nothing. But while I was tinkering around, I changed it to bright spring colours - let's see how long this lasts ;)

And that's where I'm at.

My last resort is Annie (my life as annie) who has offered to look at the HTML code. Annie, thank you - I am sending it to you via Jenny (isn't this ridiculous?)

Any clever ideas will be welcome!!!!

I got your template, and I have it loaded on my test blog and am looking at it now. I am seeing your sidebar in the correct spot both on my test blog and now here on your site. There is one thing I see on the template, the list of widgets (side bar links) are after the code for the footer, which could send it down to the bottom. I will play with it and email you back ... through jenny (yes, completely ridiculous)
ps did you get my letter?

it looks mostly good to me! the subscribe and get your organising success pack is a little funky, but everything else looks great! i'm in firefox on a widescreen computer, though...

Good luck tweeking your blog. I love blogging but detest the 'work' that has to go into making it look nice. Thanks for dropping by. Blessed Tuesday, Jenn

Your sidebar is back where it should be now! :) (In Safari) Yeah!

(I love my blog but hate the tech stuff. That's why I have dh!!)

Marcia, it seems okay now! Love the new colors.

Oh how this can be a frustration. I trust Annie will get you all set up. Good tackle. Come over for a visit.
Nice color combination with the orange and purple.

Hi Marcia,

Often times there is an extra div in the HTML code. Might want to check that out.

I love all these HTML experts - you guys should consider yourself really blessed to have brains that understand this stuff :)

Oh and Danel if you're reading, thanks for your mail. I appreciate it very much!
