Why are my widget texts italicized? (8 posts)

    I've have had some plugin issues recently that are now resolved, but now the texts in my two side columns are all in italics. I do not like the way it looks but don't know what to do about it. Help?

    You probably have coding errors - but without seeing the site, no way to be much specific help.

    Sorry - should have included that: PitcherAndPlate.com

    You have an <em> element wrapping your sidebar.

    Unfortunately, you have a whole lot of mark-up errors -- most of which are likely in your content:

    http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fpitcherandplate.com%2F&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0

    I think the italics is due to <em> tags affecting the sidebars because of misplaced div tags, but I could not sort out exactly where. You'll need to start going through the content and fixing the problems...looks like I lot, but once you get the hang of it, it's not that bad.

    I'm not very tech savvy and I don't know what to do about an element wrapping my sidebar. Can you direct me? Thank you.

    Look at the error on line 659 of the validator results -- that's likely where the problem is. But you should still fix the other errors :).

    Wow, I really don't know what all of those mean......but it did help me to recognize one problem, which I corrected, and now things look ok. So thank you for that! I would like to know how I'd go about fixing all of the things listed, but I don't know what tags are ir div tags are.
