Some posts and sidebar missing

  1. I've just gone in to check my blog. Today's post is on my home page, but the posts between today and June 2 (there should be six of them) are missing. The sidebar area is blank. What's up?

    The blog I need help with is freethoughtandmetaphor.com.

  2. Your blog has two issues. The first one is a layout issue with the sidebar displaying below the posts. 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.

    If you want to try some troubleshooting please try this:
    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 that does not work see here > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2012/05/19/sidebar-at-the-bottom-and-related-issues/

    As for your second issue, Staff have been introducing “infinite scroll" to themes — a site wide change. http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/to-infinity?replies=137

    Note that "disabling" the feature (when you use footer widgets) simply changes it from loading automatically to loading via the "Load More Posts" tab, and you can't disable that without the Custom Design upgrade.

  3. Thank you again, timethief!

  4. You're welcome. :)
