Theme format issues in Google Chrome

    I have not modified the CSS of my blog in any way, but recently my blog’s white background on the text column has gone, and the right sidebar has also been shoved to the bottom of the page. The only change that I have made was switching to Google Chrome. Is my browser just reading it wrong and everything is fine or is there something I can do?

    The blog I need help with is



    I’m using Firefox 4.0. This is not a Chrome issue. The reason your sidebar has fallen and is displaying below your posts is either due to copying and pasting or it can also be a result of importing text containing invalid HTML.

    Typically this is caused by an open HTML tag in one of your posts or in a text widget. You must locate it and close it.

    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.
