My sandbox is at mrconstitution.com.
I'm playing around with WP 3.0 in anticipation of a roll-out occurring any time now. For my purposes, I could not find a Theme I liked and I'm not knowledgeable enough yet to write my own from scratch. So I started trying to modify TwentyTen. I renamed it to BCOTUS 2010 (the theme will eventually be installed at bcotus.com -- a project about which I've written in the members-only forum).
I've got the three columns showing up on the main page. If I'm reading things correctly, I've got a series of <div> tags with "content" inside a "container" inside "main." My sidebar data is inside <div> tags named "primary", "secondary", "tertiary", and "quarternary". They are inside "main", but not inside "content" or "container".
So doesn't that mean that if I float "primary" and "secondary" to one side and "tertiary" and "quarternary" to the other, they should show up on either side of "container"? Instead, they appear to be showing up BELOW "container".
I'm going to try sticking them inside "container" next, but I thought the way the box-model thing worked, they should be alongside it.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Modified TwentyTen theme (renamed BCOTUS 2010 for my purposes)
