Sidebar Disappeared

  1. On my blog: http://battlegroundwatch.wordpress.com/ the sidebar with categories, archives, etc. simply disappeared. I don't recall adjusting any widget or anything else but I cannot recover the sidebar. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Kevin

  2. 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 in one of your posts.
    See: Themes » Layout Issues > Sidebar

    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.)

    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

  3. Perfect. I found the issue immediately. Everything is back to normal. Thank you!

  4. Hooray! Best wishes for happy blogging. :)
    P.S. Will you please enter the top of this thread and mark it "resolved"?

  5. done. Thanks again
