Sidebar widgets showing up in the footer instead

    My blog is and my widgets are all showing up in the footer. I’ve gone to Dashbar>Appearance>Widgets and made sure that they are directly under Sidebar Widget Area. I’ve checked a few browsers, and I’ve checked on my iPad, and each time they actually show up in the footer. Can someone please help me with this? Thank you in advance.

    The blog I need help with is



    Magic. I spend half the afternoon trying to figure this out, and within five minutes of posting for help I get an answer. It was a stray div tag in my most recent post. Oops.


    Well I’m seeing them in the sidebar, and not the footer. If you are still seeing this on your site, you are probably viewing a cached version of your site.

    So you can try a hard refresh:
    Windows: Ctrl + F5
    Mac/Apple: Apple + R or Cmd + R
    Linux: F5

    If that doesn’t work, you’ll need to try and clear the browser’s cookies and cache:
