Missing widgets

  1. After editing my blogposts, I refreshed the page and whoops a daisy, the sidebar at the right has DISAPPEARED! I've checked the dashboard and it says 'Elegant Grudge with 9 widgets'... so nothing was wrong. I checked the widget area and all my widgets are there! But I visited my homepage again but the sidebar is still not there. I've tried it with 4 different browsers but it is STILL not there! Help me! HELP!

    The blog I need help with is wenkai31.wordpress.com.

  2. We need a link to the blog in question please starting with http://

  3. Sidbars fall when bloggers copy and paste text from elsewhere without using either icon 5 or icon 6 in Row 2 of the visual editor. Please see here so you know how to do this correctly in the future. http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#pasting-text

    Copying and pasting can result in 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.”

    Now, starting with your latest post, open it in the editor, make one minor change such as adding a space and then deleting it, and then click “Update Post.” Check your blog and see if it is back to normal.

    If it’s not, then look for an open HTML tag and close it. Check your blog again and see if it is back to normal. If it’s still “messed up” then open the next post and do the same thing post by post until it goes back to normal.
