    In the past few days the side bar for this blog, including widgets, has disappeared. As well, the posts do not seem to be appearing in order and the format is irregular. I’m using the Twenty-Eleven theme. I’d appreciate any help to correct this. Thanks …

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

    “the side bar for this blog”
    Which blog? The one linked to your username seems to be ok.

    I’m having similar problem except my sidebar is showing up at the bottom of the page just above footer bars. Changed no settings and was fine yesterday.

    My sidebar is missing as well from the Twenty Eleven theme. I have already gone to the widgets section and tried adding widgets into the Main Sidebar dropdown. None of it is working when I see my page.

    Where can I activate it?

    Thanks!

    @biasbreakdown: Appears ok to me. What browser and version are you using?

    @tiffanyhsiau: Link to the blog in question please: the one linked to your username is using 2010, not 2011.

    http://www.shakespearesgal.wordpress.com (Musings of a Horse Mom) is experiencing this issue.

    I did my due diligence and searched in html for the <div> code in the last three or four blogs to see if this was the issue but I couldn’t locate it anywhere. I have made no changes, as far as I’m aware, to the formatting, etc.

    My other three blogs use this theme and they are not experiencing this issue.

    Thanks …

    I believe your issue is in that post.

    Do this: go to Settings->General and select “wordpress should correct invalidly nested XHTML” and then go to your Dashboard->Posts and set all the posts on the first page (20 or so) to Draft. Update. Then set them back to Public. Update. That should fix it, provided that post has been included in the edit.

    Hmmm … went to Settings>General and could not locate “wordpress should correct invalidly nested XHTML” …

    Am I missing something?

    #874690

    Excellent! Revisited General … found “wordpress should correct invalidly nest XHTML” … updated several of most recent blogs and everything is now in order.

    Thanks so much for your help. It’s very much appreciated.

    I am now using the theme, twenty eleven. I checked “wordpress should correct invalidly nest XHTML,” but my sidebar still isn’t working. I do not have posts. I only have pages.

    What else can I do?

    a) Checking that option doesn’t do anything by itself: it auto-corrects bad HTML in posts or static pages if you edit those posts or pages and if they have such an issue.

    b) Your issue is simpler: 2011 doesn’t display the sidebar on static pages unless you select the sidebar template from the Page Attributes module of the page editor.
    For more on the theme see here:

    Hello!

    I’m having the same problem too. I’ve tried everything suggested in the thread sequentially and still there is the problem persists. My footer and sidebar have gone missing. Also, some posts have been cut short. It just sort of happened. I think it was after some updates.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Hi,
    We cannot really help you unless you temporarily switch your privacy setting to the middle option.

    Sorry, wp keeps going to the old site and I’ve had no luck changing it. The blog is actually at http://www.spreademic.com/.

    Here’s a post that has been cut short and is missing the footer and sidebar: http://www.spreademic.com/2012/04/09/wire-april-1-7-2012/.

    Thanks for any help.

    That is not a WordPress.COM blog; it’s a WordPress.ORG blog and you need to find help for it over in their forums. Our answers won’t apply to you.
