Hello – I’m using this theme for the first time and am relatively new to WordPress although I’ve been coding for several years. This is probably very basic, but I’m having problems with the home page. I have a left sidebar, static front page and will add a slider. The problem is that the left sidebar is below the main content section. It looks like the page isn’t wide enough for them to be side by side. I’ve changed the sizes, however the design flexes with the changes. I can’t get the left sidebar to move up. I’ve played with the floats, but that doesn’t help.
How can I fix this problem – it must be something simple, but I can’t seem to get it.
Check to see if you have any css applying any margins or padding, especially on these elements: #main, #content, .sidebar
Check on Frontier Options -> Custom CSS and on style.css if you’re using a child theme. Most people make the mistake of copying ALL of the parent style.css code on to the child-theme style.css. Have you updated from a really old version of the theme? Padding on old versions (8 versions ago) was 10px, changed to 5px since then.
