Widget Alignment Issue WordPress


On the website, there is a widget alignment issue.

These two boxes should appear under the recent news box.

I think this might have happened when we upgraded to Wordpress 3.8.

I am not the developer of the site, and I won't be able to reach him till later this evening.

Nilesh shiragave answers:

There is no CSS issue. In second post [[LINK href=""]]Resolution[[/LINK]] you have image before content. which is causing the issue. In first post you don't have image at start.

You have to use <?php the_excerpt(); ?> to display short info of the post.

Anne Shenton comments:

You are right Nilesh. That was what was causing the issue! Where should I place that php code snippet?

.article-search, .article-sign-up {
min-height: 143px;

and eventually remone height: 372px!important; in .home .content-area .articles {
