    Following the link above will show you the errors I am trying to fix. All errors are caused by 2 plugins that I am using.
    Scrobbles and a recent comments plugin.

    Seeing as I'm new to this, I have no idea of how to correct these errors, anyone got any ideas I could try out?

    Your 1st 5 errors can be fixed by editing your sidebar.php where you have:
    Music
    [:SITD:] Wegweiser
    Suicide Commando Hellraiser (Psychopath 01-Version)
    Tactikal Sekt Bring Me Violence
    Das Ich Macht
    Suicide Commando Mordfabrik

    Simply remove the several <li> - you don't need them with <span> in that instance.

    #7 - Right before "Recent comments" in same file you have
    <li><ul>
    and below the comments
    </li></ul>
    Remove the <li> and </li>
    # 8-9 Same file
    Under "Archives" you need a <ul> before the <li> (actual dates) and </ul> after actual dates.

    Hope this is understandable?

    I took a look, and the error is caused by that music column of yours.

    You have to have a <ul> tag before <li></li> tags
    e.g.
    <ul>
    <li> a list item </li>
    </ul>

    Oh, sorry. I forgot to add the lines from my sidebar.php and from the scrobbles.php file.

    This is what I have in my sidebar:
    <span class="title">Music</span><br />
    <?php scrobbles('Cythera'); ?><br />

    And this is from the scrobbles.php file.
    if(empty($format_string)) $format_string = '<li>%artist% %title%</li>';
    if(empty($date_format)) $date_format = 'F jS Y @ g:i A';
    if(empty($each_element)) $each_element = 'ul';

    As you can see from the coding from the scrobbles file I have been trying to solve this on my own.
    Right now the only error caused by scrobbles is a </> in the end of the music list.

    And something with my archive list..
    Which right now looks like this:
    <ul><?php wp_get_archives('type=monthly&show_post_count=1'); ?></ul><br />
