If I've changed the width of my 'main wrapper' this then causes my 'side wrapper' to drop to the bottom of the posts. How do you then get it back to the top right?

I was thinking it had something to do with total width of the page and the main and side wrappers not being able to fit accross the page but perhaps this isn't the case?
