Widgets not displaying correctly

  • Author

    A while ago I customized a blog (www.koreanish.com) but then the WordPress installation was accidentally updated and it interacted badly with the customized code. Eventually, the person who ran the blog found a theme that displayed decently with the new version of WordPress + the custom code. Fast forward a couple years, he wants to switch themes again but the widgets are displaying poorly no matter what theme he chooses. It’s been a while since I’ve worked with WordPress. Can anyone advise me on how I might be able to get things to display correctly?

    The blog I need help with is koreanish.com.



    Hello there,
    My wager is that this is a case of “operator error” that has nothing to do with any theme and everything to do with copying and pasting.

    Sidebars and widgets in them do not fall to the bottom and display below posts and/or posts do not appear in sidebars unless

    (1) content has been imported into the blog

    (2) the blogger has been copying and pasting content from elsewhere, without using either icon 5 or icon 6 in Row 2 of the visual editor http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#pasting-text

    (3) or the blogger has copied and pasted invalid HTML into a text widget or left an HTML tag open

    The share widgets i have set up on my blog jacarandachick.wordpress.com are no longer visible, i’ve checked the Settings page and there they are and yet they do not display at all. I’d like to give a shot at disabling them and reinstalling, i’m a total amateur and the solution to this is not obvious to me.
