    I don’t know what happened. But after I posted yesterday, the appearance of my blog is messed up. If I click on an individual entry, it displays correctly. But if I just go to the blogsite to display the most recent post, the list that used to appear on the right side is now below the post. How can I resolve this?

    The blog I need help with is


    Oh, I thought posting my question was going to display my blog address but it didn’t.

    So here it is:

    Click on this to see the correct display of a single post:



    the list that used to appear on the right side is now below the post.

    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

    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.

    Themes » Layout Issues

    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.



    You don’t have to edit your posts one by one. After you select the option timethief suggested, go to 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.)


    PERFECT! Thanks you two!
