When I turn off In Post Ads then my sidebar appears where

When I turn off In Post Ads then my sidebar appears where it is supposed to. When I turn on In Post Ads, the ad shows up but the Sidebar is pushed to the bottom.

    Hi @brian_becker,

    If you currently have it enabled, then I see the potential issue.

    Your content has this class.

    <div class="main-no-sidebar">

    Which looks like for some reason it's using a no sidebar template. But I do see the sidebar below all the content.

    The following CSS in your theme style.css should fix it

    .single-post .inside-section {
        float: left;
        width: 730px;

    Hope this helps

    As you can see below, that kinda worked but not really. But it doesn't address the problem of this issue only arises when In Post Ads are turned on (activated). When I deactivate that plugin, the sidebar shows up properly.

    That did four things, one of which was the sidebar came back:

    1. sidebar came back
    2. the width of the post section reduced by 25%
    3. broke some of the responsive aspect of the site
    4. the white-background of the post and sidebar section disappeared.

    I just don't see how this is a css issue with the theme.

    Hi there Brian,

    Hope you're well today and thanks for granting access.

    I've checked this and that certainly is a extremely strange issue you have here, I tried modifying the css, but the best we can do is remove the sidebar or Vaughan's fix, but that makes the placeholder images have the colour of the dropdown menu.

    There's no Javascript or jQuery errors on the page at all, the div class of main content no sidebar, is quite strange, though it's there if in post ads is deactivated or not.

    Does this work if you switch to say twenty fourteen?

    Would it be possible for you to send me the following please?

    - In the subject field add "Attn: Jack Kitterhing"
    - Link back to this thread
    - Include admin/network access
    - Include FTP
    - Include any relevant URLS for your site

    On the contact form, select "I have a different question", this ensures it comes through and gets assigned to me.



    Kind Regards
