    Alright, I was editing a Wordpress theme to fit my needs (aka, get rid of the creators spam links in the bottom) and I somehow managed to put my footer in my sidebar...

    The only thing, I can't find any reason its where it is. I barely touched the CSS and no HTML/PHP seems to be putting it there.

    I was hoping someone could Skype me (I can share screen while trying to figure it out) and help me notice my error. Shouldn't take very long :/

    Thanks if anyone wants to help.

    Try going back to the original and watch the layout change by change. From there you can identify what you did that changed the layout.

    My guess would be you removed a CSS class needed for the footer.

    I think you deleted the sidebar's closing html-tag, like a div or something. Without that tag the footer gets displayed inside the sidebar.

    Find the starting tag of the sidebar and search for a matching closing tag before the starting tag of the footer. If it's not there, you got your error.
