    What happened to the layout of my blog?

    http://planetpooks.wordpress.com/

    I haven’t changed anything, but suddenly the format is all wonky. Help, please?

    Thanks.

    I noticed today that mine was different too. The calendar was gone but recent comments was added. They were working on it yesterday. So maybe that’s it. I just went to my Presentation and made it the way it used to be. It might take a few minutes to show up.

    I’m using Regulus 2.1.1 as my theme, and my calendar is a little confused. The last column, Saturday, is missing. When a go to the Preview podt, it appears correctly. Using Firefox…

    Evidently it’s my home page that’s messed up. If you click on the individual entries, they’re fine.

    Anybody from wordpress around?

    Planetpook, you have a post somewhere that has an open html tag in it. This has been covered *MANY* times in these forums. You’ll note that your sidebar is at the bottom of your home page. I’ve added the sidebar tag to this thread. You can click through that to read some of the threads for a solution or you can find one here. I politly suggest turning off TinyMCE as it’s probably messing your code up or you’re not checking it before posting. There’s also a suggestion in that thread about previewing all posts before posting that seems to work for people.

    Good luck,

    drmike, thank you for pointing me in the right direction — I’ll go look.

    I did preview and it was fine when I posted. It was a couple of days later that it popped out of format, and I hadn’t done anything to change it.

    My individual posts are fine. It’s the home page that isn’t.

    Does this still sound like what you’re assuming it is, if it was okay when posted and changed a couple of days later?

    PS. I don’t even know what TinyMCE is. Where is it, and where do I turn it off?

    Dashboard -> Users -> Your Profile -> Uncheck the boxed labeled “Use the visual rich editor when writing” and click on “Update Profile.”

    Your individual posts on their own pages look fine because they don’t have a sidebar. There’s nothing to shove down to the bottom.

    There’s also the fact that some people see it with no problem and others don’t. I’ll go change that on my Dashboard — thanks!

    DrMike — it’s already unchecked. It has never been checked.

    Okay, let me start out for apologizing for asking these questions which have evidently already been answered — but I am totally clueless. Your answers generally mean little or nothing to me without explanation and I don’t even know enough about what is wrong to search for an answer. Unless I should have searched for the word “wonky” since that is the extent of my understanding about what is happening.

    The only things in my sidebar are widgets I imported and I don’t know how to fix something that might be wrong. (I repeat, if it’s a sidebar problem it sprung up on its own because it has been working perfectly ever since I started this blog, and I didn’t touch the blog for several days last week. The problem occurred during the time period when I didn’t change anything.)

    It wasn’t the TinyMCE because that was unchecked.

    I’m not sure what else I’m supposed to look for.

    For the record —

    On a Mac, it looks great. On my Dell Laptop, it starts off fine then “jumps” to where the text is in the blue border on the left and the sidebar at the bottom.

    The feedback I’m getting is that people on Macs can see it, people using PCs and Firefox can see it, people using PCs and IE can’t.

    Does the fact that this change happened when I hadn’t changed anything on my blog mean anything at all, or am I still supposed to be looking for open tags somewhere?

    Clarificaton — all of my widgets are WordPress widgets. I didn’t import them from elsewhere.

    (Posted on your blog as well, just in case…)

    Looks ok on Firefox to me, very bad in IE, this on the same machine.

    IE gives an error saying that ‘delicious is undefinded’, you may want to look for that particular word and check the post where you wrote it for anything obvious.

    One shot in the dark: go to dashboard -> options -> writing. Is “WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically” checked. Mine is, and I got bunch of warnings a while back, but no major format issues.

    Last idea: change themes to see if it makes a difference, just to make sure it’s not theme-specific.

    Hope this helps…

    Thank you. I’ll try those!

    The problem seems to be only for people using IE.

    And it’s only a problem with Sapphire.

    I’ve changed templates (regretfully) but really am perplexed, wondering what happened to change it, since it was working fine and then suddenly went wonky.

    Thanks a lot for checking, oclcyc.

    If anybody else has a suggestion I’d be happy to try something else to get Sapphire back!

    The delicious error is a different error. (Sorry that you don’t believe me when I tell you whats causing the issue. Its been discussed many times here in these forums.) You just haven’t filled in the information for the del.icio.us widget. I just confirmed that on my test blog. (I have no idea who nedward is. Just a random pick) I got the error when I added in the empty widget. The error went away when i filled out the widget.

    I removed the delicious widget from my sidebar just in case — so it shouldn’t be causing a problem any more.

    No, the javascript error has gone away now. If you want it back though, just fill out the widget with the necessary information.
