where did my archives and posts go?

  1. I did a new post yesterday. It appears today, but my archives and recent posts listed on the right side of the screen seem to be gone. And, when I scroll down all my posts since July 2012 seem to be missing, except yesterday's post. Yikes! Help!

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

  2. Hi there,
    The good news is that you can restore any widgets to the sidebar here > Appearance > Widgets
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/archives-widget/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/recent-posts-widget/

    P.S. Check in the Inactive Widgets box as that's where they may be now.

  3. Are you pasting from Word or another Word Processing program?

    Also check "WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically" at

    Dashboard >> Settings >> Write

    Then make a small change in each Post and update it until the erratic action goes away

  4. @auxclass
    Good catch,
    Sidebars and widgets in them do not fall to the bottom and display below posts and/or posts do not appear in sidebars 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

    After you go here and enable this > Settings > Writing
    Formatting
    _ WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically
    "save changes"

    See here for sorting this out > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2012/05/19/sidebar-at-the-bottom-and-related-issues/
