side bar widgets at bottom and/or not present at all

  1. Recently my side bar widgets have migrated to the bottom but sometimes they do not display anywhere. I have force refreshed but there is no change. I have checked the blog layout on several different computers and the issue is consistent so I do not believe it is a cookies or cache issue. Suggestions?

  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.

    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.)

  3. Thanks for your suggestions. Changing from draft to published worked with my most recent post but not with the older ones. But I'll keep trying!
