[resolved] Why is every letter in my widget sidebar suddenly bold and capitalized? (6 posts)

    I was trying out different contact plug-ins and was finding it extremely difficult to find one that did not come with some type of bug or other inefficiency where I could simply have a contact page, and all of a sudden every letter in my widget sidebar is bold and capitalized.

    But when I go into the widgets to try and fix the issue, there is no code that indicates they are bold and capitalized. But one can clearly see they are.

    What's the issue here?

    EDIT: My blog is http://www.carlosmiller.com

    Your 'nav' unordered list (<ul>) at the top of your blog is presently not closed (no </ul>), so the text-transform property on the li element under it in your stylesheet is hitting pretty much all li elements on the page.

    Kafkaesqui,

    You're right. Now that you mention it, I realize I removed my RSS feed by mistake, which caused all this disruption. How do I restore it what it used to be?

    Kafkaesqui,

    I fixed the problem by simply putting </div> at the end of my navigational link in the header section of theme editing, something I would have never thought about or even know about doing a few weeks ago.

    I still don't know to replace the RSS that was on the top right hand corner of the navigational area, but I was able to fix the rest of it, which was important to me.

    Thanks a lot for you help. This was one of the few times I was able to get a response that actually enabled me to fix my problem.

    Thanks again,

    Carlos

    I'm glad it fixed things, however it's a bad fix. It's far better if you provide a closing </ul> tag to the unordered list element. Hiding broken code with invalid code is not a good habit to get into with HTML.

    RE: RSS(2) link, if your syndication feed link was originally one of the nav links, you can simply slip it in as another list item:

    <li><a href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>">RSS2</a><li>

    Perfect. Everything is back to normal. Thanks again for your help, Kafkaesqui.
