Strange Formatting After Host Switch (2 posts)

    Hi WordPress,

    We're having an issue with our site at: eventplannersassociation.com

    We recently switched our domain name server, and first believed that any issues might be from DNS propagation. However, this is seeming less like the case, and is likely something to do with the files switching to our new host.

    Our issue is that we have sidebars generating on our homepage with the incorrect size and strange formatting, and with information that isn't drawn from the widgets/sidebar page in the WordPress backend. Can anyone please explain where these elements are coming from and how we might stop them from being generated incorrectly on the page?

    Thanks

    Did you use a special tool to translate URLs and paths that are contained in serialized strings in the database? If not, this can cause many strange problems.
