    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins (yes, all) to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s). If you can't get into your admin dashboard, try resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    Hi Kmessinger,

    I think it is a theme related problem as it doesn't happen when I switch themes however it has on starting happening today and I am unsure why?

    I see this happen every so often while editing a site. The problem is 99.99% likely that you have an uneven number of opening and closing <div></div> tags in your template. If it is happening on every page of your site I would check your header and footer files (or if you know what file you were editing right before it started happening, check that one) If it is only happening on specific pages, check those template files, or the "content" of that page in the html editor for an uneven number of <div></div> tags

    Hi RyanJBaron,

    I have looked through but my header and footer files and can't find an issue the header file looks like this:

    why is this:
    <!-- nav bg -->
    <div class="conbg">

    inside of the <head></head> tag
    If i had to guess I would say it would have to do something with this. It's labeled as "nav bg" which leads me to believe it should be closed somewhere in header file itself. but regardless of that, it should not be inside of the <head></head> tag

    In this header file I see 2 instances of <div> being opened (including the one above) but not closed. That is totally fine, but are you positive they are both being closed in the footer/later on down the page?

    I don't think it anything to do with this as I have removed this and it doesn't make any difference.

    can you get all of the html from the entire page and send that? I will take a look quick and see if I can find out where it is going wrong.

    did you "move" or "remove" the:
    <!-- nav bg -->
    <div class="conbg">

    in the new code you sent me it is no longer inside the <head></head> tag, but rather above the <head></head> (that shouldn't be outside of the <body></body>)

    I searched the text and you have 28 <div> and 27 </div> the tag mentioned above is the only tag I see that doesn't have a match.

    try adding a </div> to the bottom of the footer.php file and see if that changes the display of the page (to test this way, do this before "removing" the above mentioned div)

    if it doesn't do anything adding the </div> to the bottom of the footer, try putting it above the wp_footer();

    ok, found something else, in your copyright text you have

    <span>Copyright 2012. All rights reserved. | Part of <a href="</span">

    not sure where that is set in the admin, probably under appearance --> theme settings
