  • Could you take a look at your post to see if there is an extra HTML tag such as a div?

    Login to your WordPress admin. Then go to Posts and click on your recent post. Then toggle Text for the editor.

    This will show you your post with the html code.

    Another place to check would be your widgets (if you recently added any code there).

    Hi Lorenzo,

    I did what you said, but didn’t see any extra tag. The weird thing is, this started happening yesterday when I published a new post. It went away for a while, but then came back today. My blog looks ok on my phone but not on the computer. I am really upset about it because I finally started to get some views and now it’s all messed up and I have no clue how to fix it.

    Thanks for trying to help.

    I just deleted my entire sidebar. Hope I can figure something out.

    I deleted my last two posts and the sidebar still shifted to the middle of the page. I don’t think it’s my posts. I have been doing the same thing now for months; so nothing is different now. I don’t understand why the sidebar moved now.

    Does anyone have any suggestions? I would greatly appreciate them.

    Have you modified any theme files?

    No, I wouldn’t even know how to do that.

    Your site looks okay now.

    Because I deleted my entire sidebar. It still doesn’t work.

    Deleted how? It’s not going to be possible to solve the problem without seeing it. Have you tried deactivating ALL plugins?

    Have you tried reinstalling the theme?

    Please take a look at now. Recent posts and archives and all my ads used to be on the right side, then one day, everything just moved to where it’s at now. I don’t know why!

    Okay, so somehow a mistake got made in your style.css file. I used

    to compare your style.css file to an unmodified new copy and found this error:

     * 6.0 Sidebar
     * ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    .site-main .widget-are {
    	float: right;
    	width: 300px;

    See how this line .site-main .widget-are { is missing the “a” at the end of “.widget-area”

    So you need to find that in the style.css file and correct it.

    WPyogi, thank you so much. That was the problem; the missing “a”. Thank you for helping me, it means so much to me.

    Happy Thanksgiving!


    My sidebar moved from right to the bottom on my home page and a few other pages (DIY Crafts for example). Most are ok, though.

    Could someone tell me how to fix this? I am not good with coding. I’d greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you 🙂

    I just fixed it. It was one of the link party buttons I added to one of my posts.
