My sidebar shows up at the bottom of the page. How do I have it show at the top of the column?

So my code looks like this from my archive.php file:

<?php get_header(); ?>

<section class="two-column row no-max pad"> <div class="small-12 columns"> <div class="row"> <!-- Primary Column --> <div class="small-12 medium-7 medium-offset-1 medium-push-4 columns"> <div class="primary"> <div class="leader"> <h1><?php wp_title(''); ?> Blog Posts</h1> </div>

                <?php if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>

            <article class="post">
            <h1><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h1>
            <h2><?php echo strip_tags( get_the_excerpt() ); ?></h2>
            <ul class="post-meta no-bullet">
              <li class="author">
                  <span class="wpt-avatar small">
                    <?php echo get_avatar( get_the_author_meta( 'ID' ), 24 ); ?>
                  by <?php the_author_posts_link(); ?>
              <li class="cat">in <?php the_category( ' ' ); ?></li>
              <li class="date">on <?php the_time('F j, Y'); ?></li>
            <?php if( get_the_post_thumbnail() ) : ?>
            <div class="img-container">
              <?php the_post_thumbnail('large'); ?>
            <?php endif; ?>

                    <?php endwhile; else : ?>

                    <p><?php _e( 'Sorry, no pages matched your criteria.' ); ?></p>

                <?php endif; ?>       


        <?php get_sidebar(); ?>     



<?php get_footer(); ?>

I have the <?php get_sidebar(); ?> placed where it is in the video and the final code file, yet my "Sidebar" starts below the blog posts. Please, what have I done wrong?

Hi Stephanie,

You probably have an issue with your classes for the primary column. Your sidebar should be probably be wrapped also with a div.

'''medium-7 medium-offset-1 medium-push-4 '''

I guess it's [foundation] http://foundation.zurb.com/sites/docs/v/5.5.3/components/grid.html so you have a 7 + 1 col (offset), so your sidebar div should have the class medium-4.

Hope it helps.
