Help! Can't get widgets to appear on sidebar for Fresh and Clean Theme.

    I really love the Fresh and Clean theme but I can only get my widgets to appear below the posts rather then in a 2 column format. How do I get them on the sidebar? What am I missing?? I would be SO happy to get it set up like it shows in the example.

    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.

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

    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.)

    If that does not do it then have you copied and pasted into a text widget?

    Thank you for the help…I set all my posts & pages to draft and then re-published them. This did NOT solve the problem so I ended up deleting all my widgets. This fixed the main content and extend it to a normal size but when I added any widget back in the problem returned. I read the Sidebar at the bottom and related issues link but I’m unclear how to check the code? I’d be grateful for any additional assistance to resolve this matter!
