I am a heavy user of WordPress. On several occasions I have had a problem where the right-sidebar has fallen to the bottom of the page. I have wasted hours trying to figure out why this happens and on each occasion I have encountered it, I have found different problems. I have gained a bigger understanding of what causes this problem. Here are some steps you can check.
I’ve experienced problems with malicious websites that display my web pages within an Iframe on their own sites. If you’re not familiar with what an Iframe is, it’s an HTML tag that can be used display another web page in a split view.

I decided to name this plugin YASIP (Yet Another Social Icons Plugin). With this plugin, you can display icons in 1 of 3 different sizes and 1 of 4 different styles. Here’s a list of icons you’ll find with this plugin:
