    I have an issue where the sidebar on my front page is being pushed to the bottom. I’ve checked settings, reset things, deactivated plugins, but can’t seem to find the source of why my sidebar is getting being pushed down to the bottom of the homepage. And this seemed to only have happened as of yesterday. Two days ago everything looked and worked fine.

    I mainly use Chrome, but I can see the issue is replicating on Firefox and Safari, too.

    Here’s my site — http://gravitategodward.com/

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    you are using one column layout and have enabled footer widgets, so that’s actually not sidebar pushed on the bottom, change the layout in Theme Options -> General

    Thanks, Roman. I checked that. But my footer setting is off, and I have the sidebar enabled in my general settings.

    Here’s what my current settings look like:

    Hi,

    I visited your site and viewed the web page source.
    There is an extra full-width class in the div #primary (the blog posts) causing it to expand and push down the sidebar, which is div #secondary. If I remove that, your sidebar goes back in place.
    Please see screenshot. http://prntscr.com/7dg3li

    I am unable to replicate this issue on my computer. May I know if you have made any modifications to the theme code?
    Did you install any new plugins recently?

    I will need access to your site to find out what is causing this issue.

    Oh wow. Thanks for catching that, Denzel.

    I haven’t made any modifications to the theme at all. And I don’t think I installed any new plugins since this appeared. Can you send me your email address (vial private reply)? And I’ll create an account for you.

    Hi Tad,

    Thank you for providing the access. After quite a few trial and error, I found out that it’s a bug in Evolve+ Theme.

    In your latest post http://gravitategodward.com/is-church-worth-my-time/, you set it to full width.
    This cause a function in our theme to grab it’s post ID and values associated with it, and printed it’s full-width class, causing the sidebar to be pushed down. It’s not suppose to happen, something’s wrong with how our function grab the post ID.

    I have provided a temporary solution on your website. I will need time to come up with a complete solution and test it in all possible setups before implementing in the next theme update. Meanwhile, you are very welcome to get back to me, if you still encounter any more weird issue.

    While I was in your website, I saw that you used the plugin Site Origin Page Builder, because it uses text-widgets in content, our theme’s style code will also treat that as a normal text-widget and print it’s style.
    I added the following custom css code in your Theme Options -> Custom CSS. This cancels out the unnecessary “bottom shadows” in your content.

    The next custom css I added, is for pushing down your Blog title so that it doesn’t “stick” to the top.

    That’s all. Thank you very much.

    Thanks!
    Denzel
