Automatic bold

    I’ve recently added a few new posts to the blog and for some reason every story bar the top 3 now appears in Bold. I have done nothing to them to change them and have no idea why it has appeared. When you click on an individual story it goes back to normal but I don’t want it appearing in bold in the first place.

    On the HTML and visual settings when editing each post, it appears normally.

    Can anyone help?


    The blog I need help with is

    Sorry to clarify that was me as well, using the administrator log in. The blog is


    You’re missing a closing strong tag at the end of the post “African Cup of Nations Preview – Group B”.

    As a general precaution, go to Settings>Writing, tick the option “WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically”, click Save Changes.



    You have said: “… every story bar the top 3 now appears in Bold “

    I do not understand what you mean. What is a “story bar”?



    Thanks Panos. :) Now I don’t have to go back to the blog and puzzle out what he meant.


    timethief – I meant every story except the top 3 was in bold.

    panaghiotisadam – Thanks so much, it’s sorted now. I must have deleted the closing tag when editing and hadn’t noticed. Thanks again for taking the time to have a look.



    @benjaminwinst: You’re welcome.

    (@timethief: puzzled me too at first – got the meaning when I saw the blog!)
