I have a guest blog on my site at http://www.masonmetu.com/futures-on-f... and now when I add a new blog post I keep getting errors saying invalid component id '13705' cannont find component HTML and then it will do a series of these and I have to click ok. The post will then show up but the previous post has some strange characters that show up above the post. Not sure what I did wrong here.

Hi Kristin

I'm sorry that you're experiencing frustration. Hopefully, we'll be able to sort this out.

The first thing I noticed is that your blog is full of Word formatting which causes many problems in your site. I would recommend that you copy all your text and paste into Notepad (found in your accessories on your desktop). This strips away any formatting. Then, copy from Notepad and paste into your blog or text widget.

Try this first to see if this resolves your problems. Then, if problems continue, we'll take a look at this further.

Hi Littleus -yes, I'm still working on all the word problems with the site but on this particular blog page, I haven't used the word format since I knew of the problems it creates - I've formatted via notepad - unless the "about me" tag is formatted in word. I'll try to adjust that and see if the problem still happens. .

ok, I just decided to create a new page since I only had two blog posts - took care of the problem but now on my main blog page, all my blog categories are messed up - they no longer show the posts that I've done - it'll show a 0 when I've done 2-4 blogs per category listed. I don't think I have it in me to redo that whole page. I've tried to strip out the word stuff - i think i have most of it out of there - is there any help for the blog posts? They show up under my blog manager but not when you preview it and look at the categories - they are missing then. If i have word format on the other pages (I have so many and am trying to get to them all) does that effect the main page too? Ahhhhh.......woe-is-me.

Christo is my new best friend - yeah! thank you so much - what was wrong? I still get some weird stuff with the blog - you can't see the about me or the rest of my blog categories until you click on the current post and then they will open up (this just happens in IE) but I will take this big improvement for sure. I am so grateful. Tell Christo he is the best!

Thanks Kristin - we had to resync something on our side - it wasn't anyything you did.

I do see that you have copied text from MS Word on your blogposts. This can affect your blog in strange ways because it has copied hidden formatting code. We recommend that you first paste the text into Notepad to strip the code and then copy and paste it onto your site. Could you give this a try and see if it makes a difference to the site in IE? Let us know how it goes.
