How can I change my widget administration screen to look like the tutorials?

  1. When I click on Appearance and then Widgets in my dashboard, it takes me to the widgets area, but all the widgets are open and I have to scroll down for almost 2 minutes to get to the primary sidebar area. I can't effectively drag and drop my widgets quickly - it takes forever. My widgets screen does not look anything like it looks in the WordPress tutorials and walkthroughs. Not sure how to fix! Please help!

    The blog I need help with is onetimethrough.com.

  2. Hiya Sue, It sounds as if you're viewing the widgets page in Accessibility Mode. Take a look at this link, a try turning that mode off:

    Once it's off, exit the page, then re-enter Appearance → Widgets, and let me know how that worked for you.

    Thanks much!

  3. Hi Robyn - I just updated my internet browser today and the problem seems to have corrected itself! The widget page looks great and like it's supposed to. Thanks for getting back to me.
