    Hi!

    First off, I absolutely love the Graphene theme. I’ve been using it for over a year and have gotten a lot of compliments on the appearance of my blog. I love how flexible Graphene is!

    I apologize if this is covered elsewhere — I did a search on Widget Sidebars and didn’t see a similar support thread to solve my problem.

    I’ve got a 3-column layout on all the pages of my blog, with both of the narrower widget sidebars aligned to the right. I finished posting yesterday morning with no issues, but when I checked my blog last night, I noticed that the two widget columns were gone, but only on my home page. All other pages, the columns appear as they should. (www.newspaceraces.com).

    I did not do any upgrades nor did I install any new plugins yesterday. I don’t think I changed any of the Graphene settings (but maybe I did inadvertently).

    I’ve been all through the dashboard over and over, trying to figure out what has changed, but I cannot figure out how to fix the problem. Everything under the hood appears to be set correctly. Help!

    Does the problem still exist in a 2 or 1 column layout?

    I went through all the configurations of columns:

    [] (no sidebars) — all pages load correctly

    [] | (sidebar on right) — all pages load, but front page has blank widget column

    | [] (sidebar on left) — Front page doesn’t load (Header banner appears, menu & search box appears, body of page is blank). Other pages do load normally (including widget columns)

    [] | | — all pages load, but front page has two blank widget columns

    | | [] — Front page doesn’t load (Header banner appears, menu & search box appears, body of page is blank). Other pages do load normally (including widget columns)

    | [] | — Front page doesn’t load (Header banner appears, menu & search box appears, body of page is blank). Other pages do load normally (including widget columns)

    I figured that there’s something going on with Sidebar 2. In this sidebar, I have a couple of text widgets that have content that changes on most days. I inactivated those widgets, ran through all the column configurations, and had exactly the same results as above.

    Then I inactivated all widgets from Sidebar 2, ran through the column configurations, and got these results:

    [] — all pages load correctly

    [] | — all pages load, but front page has blank widget column

    | [] — All pages don’t load (Header banner appears, menu & search box appears, body of page is blank).

    [] | | — All pages don’t load (Header banner appears, menu & search box appears, body of page is blank).

    | | [] –All pages don’t load (Header banner appears, menu & search box appears, body of page is blank).

    | [] | — All pages don’t load (Header banner appears, menu & search box appears, body of page is blank).

    I’ve since reactivated my sidebar 2 widgets and put my blog back into [] | | configuration. I’ve advised my readers that if they need info from the sidebar that they’ll have to go to another page.

    Thoughts on what’s going on?

    Hy,

    Issue is probably caused by one of the posts on the front page. Change each posts status to “draft” one after another to see which post is causing this.

    Check the content of the post and try to find something like closing divs or simmilar.

    Awesome,Luko — that did the trick. I had C&P’d text from one website to the post and block quoted it, but the closing tag appeared in the wrong spot.

    I’ll remember that next time. Thank you so much!
