I am trying to get this front page formatted so that the columns line up right and it looks neat and clean.
Site:
http://bkgoswami2013.atourcity.com/wp

I am new to  wordpress. This theme is supposed to be 3 columns plus a sidebar like dandavats.com. Currently it is not lined up right, however.

I have looked through all the settings for the theme but none seem to apply.

You have some validation errors on that page which you should probably sort out first.

In addition the site markup seems to differ quite substantially from the  http://dandavats.com/ site.

Did you make any modifications to the theme files?

@julianH: At first I clicked the link on the bottom of dandavats.com to get the theme Newsprint 2(files). I installed it. It didn't look anything like the theme of dandavats.  At that time I took out the sample Ads and my collaborator may have made some changes, but then I installed a later version of the theme (NewsPrint 3) attempting to get the same look. Since installing the later version, there have been no changes to it. I will look into the validation errors.

@Jester_48: I will look into that.

Ok because the layout of the dandavts site is quite different from yours.

Well, if the goal is to make it look like dandavats, then how would I proceed? Dump this theme?

Either that or you will need to get a developer to assist you in massaging this to get what you want. I don't think you will be able to get it resolved here - there does not appear to be an obvious quick fix.

@jester_48: I couldn't see that that </div> was extra-- they all seem to be matched up.

@Both: Ok. Thanks for looking at it. My developer friend will eventually help me with this. In the meantime I will try to tackle it myself.
