Format messed up below third post

  • #736530 – any idea what is wrong with my formatting or how to fix it?



    The blog I need help with is



    Typically this is caused by an open HTML tag in one of your posts.

    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.



    Hi looks like you have bad code, probably unclosed HTML tags in your latest post.

    goto to your Dashboard–>Settings–>writing.
    Beside Formating , check the box text to: “WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically”

    then goto your latest published post in the Editor mode and click update.

    Hopefully that will take care of the problem.


    To find the culprit post(s), you click on the title of each post and see in which case(s) the sidebar drops to the bottom. You’ve got three posts with unclosed div tags.

    Alternative to finding the posts and correcting each one:
    After you’ve checked the option timethief and dlager suggested, go to Posts > All Posts, tick the square next to “Title” to select all your latest posts, select Edit from the Bulk Actions pulldown, click Apply, select Draft from the Status pulldown, click Update. Repeat, selecting Published from the Status pulldown, click Update.


    Thanks! All good now!
