I am trying to get Twitter updates on the site. If I add it to the header.php and add a relative position it won't scale left to right. If I put it in the sidebar.php the updates get hidden. www.willworkformac.com I'd like them to sit in the empty spot under the search area.

I would recommend starting

I would recommend starting here - http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwillworkformac.com%2F

and then also not using position:absolute until you fully understand it.

Thanks, I was afraid you

Thanks, I was afraid you would say that. I just don't understand everything the validator is trying to say and unless I am missing something somethings can't really be changed.

What kind of things are you talking about with absolute

If you remove the

If you remove the position:absolute, the twitter update is right there.

It needs to be put into place and styled, but it is under the search.
There is a large gap, but you'd have to play with the styles to get it in the spot you want it.

I would probably remove it from the sidebar and put it back in the header and then let us know and we can help you get it pushed to the right and under the search without the use of absolute positioning.

as for the

as for the validator.

Anchors do not have alt tags, they have title tags.
All images require an alt tag at the very least use alt="" but it's recommend to actually put in a description of the image

your list items in your rss feed need to be within a UL or OL, currently they are in a DIV.

Get those fixed and that will be a lot of your errors and we can help clean up the rest from there.
