Stuff that occurs to me

All of my 'how to' posts are tagged here. The most popular posts are about blocking and private accounts on Twitter, also the science communication jobs list. None of the science or medical information I might post to this blog should be taken as medical advice (I'm not medically trained).

Think of this blog as a sort of nursery for my half-baked ideas hence 'stuff that occurs to me'.

Moving Twitter widgets around on the page - how can I get this to sit on the right?


I have fairly basic html / php coding skills and it may well be the case that I really need to get better at CSS in order to achieve what I'd like to with this particular challenge.

On our website we have a Twitter widget that self-updates with our tweets. You can just make it out lurking at the bottom of this page (Fig 1) but I'd quite like it to sit neatly on the right hand side of the page (Fig 2), which was achieved by taking a screenshot of the page and manipulating it in Paint.

The best I have in my coding armoury is stuff like 'float right' and that sort of thing, which doesn't appear to work particularly well.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a simple fix or do I just need to better educate myself in matters of page layout?

Comment policy: I enthusiastically welcome corrections and I entertain polite disagreement ;) Because of the nature of this blog it attracts a LOT - 5 a day at the moment - of spam comments (I write about spam practices,misleading marketing and unevidenced quackery) and so I'm more likely to post a pasted version of your comment, removing any hyperlinks.

Comments written in ALL CAPS LOCK will be deleted and I won't publish any pro-homeopathy comments, that ship has sailed I'm afraid (it's nonsense).
