sidebar has disappeared

  1. I updated my blog this evening and when I went back to my home page, for some reason the sidebar had completely disappeared, all of it. When I scrolled down to the bottom however, I found it way down the bottom to the right. This only happens on the home page; when I click on individual posts it is OK. I don't know WHAT to do!
    (I went to another wordpress support page - the wrong one - and they told me to validate the page, I did and over 300 errors came up!) Could you please explain and let me know how to fix this and how to avoid this happening again? Thanks!

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

  2. Sidebars and widgets in them do not fall to the bottom and display below posts and/or posts do not appear in sidebars, all fonts do not change to italics or bold, unless

    (1) content has been imported into the blog

    (2) the blogger has been copying and pasting content from elsewhere, without using either icon 5 or icon 6 in Row 2 of the visual editor http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#pasting-text

    (3) or the blogger has copied and pasted invalid HTML into a text widget or left an HTML tag open

    The result of copy and pasting for example from Microsoft Word into the Tiny MCE editor in WordPress blogs can be unexpected, and contain a lot of formatting code that's not compliant unless you know how to use the built-in features in the Visual editor for using Word cleanly. http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#pasting-text

    Note you need to click the kitchen sink icon #15 at the end of Row 1 to have Row 2 appear. http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#row-1
