I cleared cache and still the same problem. The blog is: http://wp.me/p1joZB-cN Blog url: http://userloseit.wordpress.com/ The blog I need help with is userloseit.wordpress.com.

July 18, 2012 at 12:05 pm #949441 justpiMember You’re welcome. Those tags cannot show up by themselves, so to answer your question I need to know if you copypasted the content from another source or if you tried to left-align the text via the relevant tool of the Visual editor. July 19, 2012 at 11:13 am #949658 userloseitMember I did not copy paste the content from another source, it was original. I tried to left align the text only as a last resort to try and fix the text. The text already was appearing shifted to the left when I tried that. July 19, 2012 at 12:08 pm #949659 justpiMember I see. So: when you start typing a new post, make sure the Format tool (row 2 tool 1) is set to Paragraph. (In case you’re curious to know how I can tell it wasn’t set to Paragraph: if it was, then your trying to left align the text would have produced p tags instead of div tags.)
