Support » Fixing WordPress » Sidebar has gone from homepage

  • I updated my blog this evening and when I went back to my home page, for some reason the sidebar had completely disappeared, all of it. When I scrolled down to the bottom however, I found it way down the bottom to the right. This only happens on the home page; when I click on individual posts it is OK. I don’t know WHAT to do!

  • That’s often caused by an open or extra tag in the HTML – try validating your page to see if you have those kinds of errors:

    Thanks! I did that. I have 342 errors and 17 warnings!! A long list. BUT I don’t know what to do next! I am NOT technically minded. It just says “fix them”… HOW?? Can I just check the box that says “validate error pages” or “clean up” or….??
    Please help!!

    The notes say: The following notes and warnings highlight missing or conflicting information which caused the validator to perform some guesswork prior to validation, or other things affecting the output below. If the guess or fallback is incorrect, it could make validation results entirely incoherent. It is highly recommended to check these potential issues, and, if necessary, fix them and re-validate the document.

    The validator checked your document with an experimental feature: HTML5 Conformance Checker. This feature has been made available for your convenience, but be aware that it may be unreliable, or not perfectly up to date with the latest development of some cutting-edge technologies. If you find any issues with this feature, please report them. Thank you.

    What is your URL?

    Ah, well, then you actually need to be in a different place all together – here:

    These forums are for self-hosted WP.ORG sites. (You’re actually lucky as you won’t likely have to fix all those errors – they probably aren’t your problem – LOL!).

    Oh – OK!! I hope they can help. Thanks so much anyway!
