Hello, I already have an open question about drop down menus but this is now a different problem. I recreated my index page as a blog page yesterday. I had no problems, it was working fine. This morning I added 1 new post and some text in a text box. After the blog post I received the invalid compenent id 13625 cannot find HTML. I pressed ok and then saw that all my text boxes that were on the right side of my page are now gone. They were there yesterday and I did not edit them today, the text I added was above the blogs. I have not published it so you can see what it suppose to look like here: http://momsfunmoney.com. I deleted both the new blog bost and the new text I created today and refreshed the page but the error message still comes up. Can you help?

Hello Katie

You could receive a message like this "Invalid Component id '134'. Cannot Find Component HTML" if:

1. You have pasted some HTML onto your page that is not valid. This often happens if you accidentally miss a portion of the code and a tag is not closed.
2. You have copied and pasted some text from MS Word that has introduced problematic HTML or CSS. The best way to avoid this is to first copy and paste into a program like Notepad (you'll find it in the Accessories folder of your computer) This will strip out any unwanted formatting and you can then safely paste into the Text Widget.

If you get a message like this, hold down the escape key until it goes away. Then try to delete any widget that you think might contain problematic HTML or text copied and pasted from MS Word. If this does not work, unfortunately you will have to rebuild the page. One thing you can do is save a copy of your pages by clicking on the drop down arrow next to the "save" button and selecting "save page as". This will give you a back up version of your page in case something goes wrong. Remember to untick the box that says "include in navigation" so that the back up page does not appear in your main navigation. We are working on solutions for both of these scenarios to prevent problems of this nature in future.

Please let me know if the problem persists.

Well, I already removed both things I added this morning. Why would it just delete text boxes on the right side? Since my published page is still ok why will it not refresh to it. the Yola site that I work from shows something different. I even exited and got back in. why won't yola go back to the way the website looks?

I did not copy anything from MS word, i typed everything myself right in yola and copied 2 pictures which I then removed after the code came up. I did nothing with HTML this morning???

Well it is something with the blog posts on the page. I created a new one and the error message comes up. I tried both one with a picture and one with just random text and the message comes up. What could be wrong with the blog post section that would allow it to do this?

I'm getting this error on my blog: Invalid widget id 'I65'. Cannot find component HTML. I'm not sure what i'm doing that's making this happen. I only just started and have two posts. I made a few text edits after publish successfully, and now this error is occuring and causing all of the "blog stuff" (i.e. categories, tags) not to appear, as all as the discussion widget
