    Anyone know why my blog is not displaying properly ? It shows some posts but none of the features (calendar, top posts, etc. )

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

    Have you gone here > Appearance > Widgets and installed the widgets of your choice?

    Yes, the widgets seem to be OK. Am I the only one with this problem ?

    I have a different problem this morning. My widgets are way down on the page. I thought they were gone, but they are just in a weird place. I’m at http://www.redwhiteandgrew.com

    They must be working on something.

    The correct URL for your blog is http://redwhiteandgrew.com/
    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.

    Go to Settings > Writing and select “ ___ WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically” and then scroll down and click “Save Changes.”

    Now, starting with your latest post, open it in the editor, make one minor change such as adding a space and then deleting it, and then click “Update Post.” Check your blog and see if it is back to normal.

    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 so you know how to do this correctly in the future. http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#pasting-text

    And now it’s miraculously fixed. I have no idea what happened.

    Have you done any CSS editing on your theme? Have you created a custom menu?

    No, no CSS editing at all. Have not changed or touched a thing since yesterday. Don’t even know what CSS editing is.

    Thanks.

    You’re right. I did write the URL incorrectly.

    And I had gone into a post to correct something and THEN it was resolved. So, I accidentally repaired it.

    I will go make that selection in settings.

    Have you created a custom menu and installed the custom menu widget?

    If so go to the custom menu page in the dashboard Appearance > Menus and in the “theme location” module at upper left select the correct custom menu from the pull-down and then click “save”.

    If another Volunteer cannot help you then you will have to contact Staff.

    Your theme is balckletterhead and yet I’m not seeing a black background. Did you upload a background image? If so then please remove that background image and see if that corrects the display.

    edit: typo “balckletterhead” was meant to be “blackletterhead”
