Sidebar appears at bottom of homepage

    I tried adding a copyright to my page. I tried adding it as a widget to the sidebar and it caused my entire sidebar to slide to the very bottom of my homepage. I removed it, but the items still appear at the bottom of the page even after removing each widget and re-adding them. Ideas?

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

    You probably have an open code tag in the post:
    http://strugglingwithbipolar.wordpress.com/2011/07/27/wonderful-week/

    first step to correct this would be:
    left column Dashboard–>Settings –>Writing.

    at “formating” put a check in the box for “WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically “

    This might “auto correct” the problem.

    This will correct the problem, but not by itself: after you check the option (and click Save Changes, of course), you need to edit the problem post (make any insignificant change such as adding then removing a space) and click Update.

    Thank you. It’s all set. This fixed it. It was weird that it just happened today after I made the other change.

    Thanks again!

    @ strugglingwithbipolar —from me.. your welcome and happy blogging.

    @panos, true, I had forgotten, that you would have to update the post for the change to take place. Thats helpful in the future, since this is a common subject in the forum to answer.
    I’m just going to bookmark this thread, for the future.

    Hi,

    Today, when I logged into my blog, the sidebar appeared in the bottom of my homepage. I’m not sure what caused it. I tried to do what you guys described here, but it didn’t work. I thought the last post could be the problem, so I deleted it, but nothing.

    More ideas?

    G’evening,
    If you are referring to the blog linked to your username which is displaying correctly for me in Firefox 5.0.1 then you have a browser issue. See here for how to proceed > http://www.google.com/support/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=32050

    Thanks for the tip, but it didn’t work. Although I checked in another computer and, as you say, it displays correctly. Another thing I can do with my browser?
