Ocean Mist Theme White Background Missing

  1. Yesterday my blog lost the white background to posts and sidebar, now they are blue. I am using the Ocean Mist theme. Is anyone else having the same problem?

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

  2. Hi. It might be only you. Look at this random blog using that theme. Their background seems fine and, unlike you, the tagline "Theme: Ocean Mist by..." is appearing:
    http://providencechamber.wordpress.com/2010/11/16/collaboration-connection-theme-of-knowledge-economy-forum/

    So the problem might be one of your widgets or your posts. For the widgets, try going to Appearance > Widgets and dragging/dropping one widget at a time from the sidebar to the inactive widgets area, until the problem stops (then you'll know which widget poses a problem).

    If that doesn't work, go to Settings > Writing and check WordPress.com should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically, and follow these instructions:

    As airodyssey suspected, the problem is an extra div tag in the widget you added yesterday. The HTML after the image code is:
    <DIV><A HREF="http://oliverandruby.wordpress.com/">The Oliver and Ruby Chronicles</A><div></div>
    Should be:
    <div><a href="http://oliverandruby.wordpress.com/">The Oliver and Ruby Chronicles</a></div>
    Or with no div tags at all.

    PS See here for better ways to arrange content than the ones you've been using:
