Where's my sidebar?

Does anyone know where my sidebar may have gone? It has not sunk all the way to the bottom--it does not seem to be anywhere. Might this have something to do with this thing all the way at the bottom:

Me again,

I see the thing at the bottom I tried to include in this post didn't show up -- It looks like this

!-- Begin #c

with an open triangular bracket in front.

It looks like you'll need to check your template.
From the source code that line is the beginning of the final !--Begin #comments End #comments sequence. You are also missing the /div that close the main column and all the sidebar codes that follow along from that.

I see the same thing Haalo does when I use view/source to look at your code. After the last post there is that line you noticed in your template, and then nothing else. Once I had my entire right sidebar disappear, but when I republished it came back. Here's hoping it's that easy.

Haalo and Kalyn, thanks so much.

OK, I'm looking. about how far down in my code should this be?


Also how did this happen all by itself on a day when I did not touch the template at all?

When you look at your code, it's the very last thing you see. (In other words, there should be more, but there isn't! Sorry to tell you that.)

Does it look OK now?

Sidebars usually disappear to the bottom when you include a picture too wide for the main column. Blogger also has a nasty little bug whereby italic text that exactly fills the main body width can also trigger this problem, so you need to be careful when writing full width italic.

Thanks Kalyn and everyone,
It did come back when I republished.
