Sidebar appears at bottom of homepage

    I tried adding a copyright to my page. I tried adding it as a widget to the sidebar and it caused my entire sidebar to slide to the very bottom of my homepage. I removed it, but the items still appear at the bottom of the page even after removing each widget and re-adding them. Ideas?

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

  2. You probably have an open code tag in the post:
    http://strugglingwithbipolar.wordpress.com/2011/07/27/wonderful-week/

    first step to correct this would be:
    left column Dashboard-->Settings -->Writing.

    at "formating" put a check in the box for "WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically "

    This might "auto correct" the problem.

    This will correct the problem, but not by itself: after you check the option (and click Save Changes, of course), you need to edit the problem post (make any insignificant change such as adding then removing a space) and click Update.

    Thank you. It's all set. This fixed it. It was weird that it just happened today after I made the other change.

    Thanks again!

    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 so you know how to do this correctly in the future. http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#pasting-text

  6. @ strugglingwithbipolar ---from me.. your welcome and happy blogging.

    @Panos, true, I had forgotten, that you would have to update the post for the change to take place. Thats helpful in the future, since this is a common subject in the forum to answer.
    I'm just going to bookmark this thread, for the future.

  7. Hi,

    Today, when I logged into my blog, the sidebar appeared in the bottom of my homepage. I'm not sure what caused it. I tried to do what you guys described here, but it didn't work. I thought the last post could be the problem, so I deleted it, but nothing.

    More ideas?

  8. G'evening,
    If you are referring to the blog linked to your username which is displaying correctly for me in Firefox 5.0.1 then you have a browser issue. See here for how to proceed > http://www.google.com/support/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=32050

  9. Thanks for the tip, but it didn't work. Although I checked in another computer and, as you say, it displays correctly. Another thing I can do with my browser?
