    Hi everyone! For some reason, my sidebar widgets mysteriously moved underneath my posts today. I am using IE. No idea why this has happened – it’s never happened before. Any suggestions?

    And, the space posts appear in suddenly got so narrow the images are cutting off. This hasn’t ever happened before.

    Yes. Typically this is caused by an open HTML tag. This happens when bloggers copy and paste content without using the correct icons in the Visual editor (Row 2 icon 5 & 6).

    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 it’s not, then look for an open HTML tag and close it. Check your blog again and see if it is back to normal. If it’s still “messed up” then open the next post and do the same thing post by post until it goes 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. http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#pasting-text

    Previous to uploading any image it’s important that you optimize the image and presize it to the correct size for your theme. This is a list of maximum displayed image widths by theme. http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/07/23/maximum-image-width/ This is a list by theme of sidaber widths http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2010/01/11/sidebar-width/
