Posts are not in order of date

  1. I am new to this blogging and after putting a few posts on my new blog I am confused that some posts for August are below the posts for July?
    And one post has come to the side of the latest post meaning the side panel has gone to the bottom of the page?
    I have deleted cache and cookies, I have looked on a different browser but nothing seems to work.
    I have looked on another laptop as well.
    Please help, thanks

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

  2. Oh my. You have worse problems than that, much worse, but they're easily fixed.

    It comes from introducing code errors into your blog, usually from copy-pasting from Word or some other non-web-compatible software.

    Here's how to fix it and prevent it from ever happening again:

    1) instead of Word, use Windows Live Writer. It allows you to add tags and categories and format and preview your posts even when you're offline.

    2) go to Dashboard->Settings->Writing and select the tickbox for "Wordpress should correct invalidly nested XHTML" and Save Changes.

    3) Go to Dashboard->Posts and select the latest 20 posts. Using the Bulk Editor, set them all to Draft status. Save Changes. Then set them back to Public and save that.

    This will force the setting you changed in #2 to take effect on all of those posts, and that should fix the issue. That setting will prevent it from ever happening again.

    Sounds like a lot, but it's really only a few clicks.
