I use the sidebar left template for posts, hoping to use the the left sidebar for widgets (which I want to control so as to appear only on posts) I’m using a widget called Disable for this. As far as I can see the CSS has provision to make the content float to the right on the sidebar left templates. However, it keeps getting overridden by this CSS line:
So that the post appears in the centre of the page and the widgets are pushed to the bottom.
If I try to contradict this CSS line the whole site gets messed up.
I had already deactivated the Widget disable. In fact, I realised that as long as I only put widgets in the Widget Sidebar (the first option) they would only appear in posts where I used a Sidebar Left template – or at least that’s what seems to be the case. Therefore no plugin needed.
But I still hadn’t cured the problem of this rule
jumping in and forcing a left float when I wanted a right float, despite targetting the float on the required post template. Everytime I inspected the code there it was.
I’ve fixed it now by changing the overarching rule to float:right and the page templates to float:left. So far, it’s OK – don’t seem to have broken the Internet. :-)
