3.6.8 interlaces right sidebar with main contents

Post by Palijn » 08 Nov 2010, 07:51

Hello Sir,
I was so happy to upgrade to Suffusion 3.6.8 today!
Unfortunately, the right sidebar of my site is now displaying "interlaced" with the "Widget area above footer" contents.
You can have a look at this at http://france.adspicio.com (please do not advertise - site in development).

I did empty my cache with Safari on Mac, tried with Chrome on both Mac and Win7 : same display.
I did also try your CSS from http://www.aquoid.com/forum/viewtopic.p ... 105#p13757 , added it in Custom Includes, but no change.

Is there any way to fix this display ? Thanks for your great work, and thanks for your support in advance!

Interestingly, Firefox does display the sidebar correctly, as does IE 8.0 , although there is a major change now: the "Widget area above footer" is now displayed right below the main contents and along the sidebar, whereas with Suffusion 3.6.6 this widget area was always displayed below all contents including the sidebar.
Which leads to the second question: shall this behaviour remain standard, or is that an unexpected side-effect I shall not count on ?

Thanks a lot
Palijn

Is this a problem with Google Chrome or all browsers as it looks ok to me in Firefox and Explorer, incidentally my site is all screwed up again in Google Chrome as is yours. I'm just going to tell people to use another browser, not ideal but Google Chrome is always playing up with Suffusion.

I'm having the exact same problem. After 3.6.8 upgrade my right column gets shoved down below the main content, but still remaining in the right column, and the footer aligns below the bottom of the right column. It displays like this in explorer, safari and firefox. When I reload Suffusion 3.6.6 the site displays correctly again. In addition to emptying my cache, I also tried disabling buddypress, but there was no change.

@Palijn,
Good catch. This is a bug. You can fix it this way:
1. Open header.php in your editor
2. Scroll to the end. You will see:

Code: Select all

		<?php
			suffusion_after_begin_wrapper();
		?>
			<div id="container" class="fix">
				<?php
					suffusion_after_begin_container();
				?>
3. Change it to:

Code: Select all

		<?php
			suffusion_after_begin_wrapper();
			suffusion_after_begin_container();
		?>
			<div id="container" class="fix">
4. Save the file.

Alternatively you can move down to the previous version as described here. I will try to get a fix out by the end of the day.

@Dallen,
Your issue is a bug, but a different one, related to this thread: http://www.aquoid.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=3105. There is an easy workaround, if you don't mind. You can:
1. Disable the tabbed sidebar
2. In your Sidebars and Widgets -> Sidebar 2 options you can set up the sidebar to be tabbed
3. In your Sidebars and Widgets -> Sidebar 2 - Bottom options you can set up the sidebar to be flattened
4. In your Appearance -> Widgets options you can move all widgets you have in Sidebar 2 to Sidebar 2 - Bottom
5. Add "Recent Posts", "Recent Comments" and "Archives" to Sidebar 2.

Hello Sir,
Thank you for your prompt feeback!
I did change header.php on the server in the way you recommend... but apparently it does not fix the display of my site in neither Chrome nor Safari. :? (For the record, Opera 10.63 suffers from the same display issue.)
(The Safari and Chrome caches were cleared, and I do not think there is any cache in my WP installation).

Please do tell me if there is anything I can do to help fixing !
Thanks again for your support :)

Thanks for your advice Sayontan, I appreciate the response. Rather than juggling the right side bars though, I will just use version 3.6.6 until 3.6.8 is stable.

For the record, I have switched back to 3.6.6, too , for lack of being able to fix the 3.6.8 sidebar display.
Hopefully Sayontan will be able to release a fix soon !
Best regards

Same problem after 3.6.8 upgrade (tested with Chrome and Firefox):
the widget area above footer displayed under the sidebar. :(
I switched back to 3.6.6.

Hi there. I think Suffusion is a fantastic theme and very flexible. I am having a few problems with the latest changes though! I think I have the same issue as listed in this topic. For example see this page

http://www.stirlingalbionfc.com/player- ... s/defence/

When the page is shorter than the sidebars, the sidebars overlap the footer. :?

I have tried the fix mentioned by Sayontan above but it hasn't helped. Is the only choice to roll back to the earlier version?

Thank you

(p.s. Sayontan, a small point - in the footer of my site, your name is invisible because I have a black background. I don't know how to change the font colour there)

Edit to add - FIXED in 3.6.9, thank you Sayontan :D
