Widgets at Bottom

    All my widgets are at the bottom of my blog, why is that?
    I checked the widgets thing (incase they were all moved to the Footer Section), I don’t know why. I didn’t change anything.
    Can you help?

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



    Hi. In order to assist you, we need the URL of your blog, starting with http:// please. Thanks.


    I just looked at my blog and surprisingly they are back in place!



    I’m happy to hear this is resolved. Please take two more steps.

    Go to Settings > Writing and select “ ___ WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically” and then scroll down and click “Save Changes.”

    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

    Please replace the username link to your deleted blog with the link to your active blog. Dashboard -> Users -> Personal Settings -> then scroll down to Account Details. Then scroll down to where it says ‘Website‘ select the URL for your primary wordpress.com blog and then save changes.


    I can’t find “ ___ WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically”. I did the other stuff.



    You went to Settings > Writing?




    Oops sorry,
    I found it today. I must have skipped it over before. I guess I thought I’d be looking for something bigger. Well…I clicked on it and saved changes. I hope it works! :)



    If it does not work then 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.

    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 recently copied and pasted content into a text widget then open the widget and look for and close any open HTML tags.
