How can I restore my blog's original appearance

  1. My blog is not displaying correctly. The sidebar had dropped to the bottom and past blogs now clog the sidebar. I know there was a suggestion on how to fix it. But I can't make anything work. Please help this old wandering/wondering broad solve her problem. Thanks Pat Bean.

  2. If you have been copying and pasting text from elsewhere without using either icon 5 or icon 6 in Row 2 of the visual editor, please see here http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#pasting-text

    The reason your sidebar has fallen and is displaying below your posts is either due to copying and pasting or it can also be a result of importing text containing invalid HTML. Typically this is caused by an open HTML tag in one of your posts.

    Go to Settings > Writing and select “ ___ WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically” and then scroll down and click “Save Changes.”

    Posts > All Posts, change all your latest posts to Draft, click Update, change them back to Published, click Update again. (You can edit all of them at once: tick the square in front of their titles then select Edit from the Bulk Actions dropdown and click Apply.)

    See > Themes > Issues > Sidebar

    If that does not work see here > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2012/05/19/sidebar-at-the-bottom-and-related-issues/

  3. Thanks timethief. While much of what you said didn't work, simply updating my last blog worked. I think it's all back to normal now.

  4. That's good news. Happy blogging. :)
