i cant get widgets to load or work

  1. i have 5 blogs all under my user name purpleandrew, ezch blog page has a different title for the varying content.
    I have tried unsuccessfully to put widgets on for about 6 hours now and every time i do, they do not appear. This is driving me crazy.
    I have created an aboutme page, but this also fails to add. It does not show the followers count or the how to follow me /sigh in thingy. Everything i try, fails. I have even shanged the theme page to one that looks better for showing these widgets, but alas this has not allowed the widgets to add.
    I am at the end of my tether and just want a few simple things added to my 5 blogs. Please help, but do not end great screeds of stuff, simple, clear, unambiguous informatio is what i need. I dod not see a "save" changes to accept the overall changes, jut those for the widgest i have tried to add, but this fails as well.
    It applie to all 5 blogs, not just the one on the label here

    The blog I need help with is fendrelstale.wordpress.com.

  3. What are the URLs of the five blogs?

    What themes are they using? Are all themes sidebar-enabled?

    Are the widgets visible on your Widgets page in the sidebar, footer, or alternate widget areas?

    Have you gone through http://learn.wordpress.com yet? Starting out with five blogs is ambitious for someone with no WordPress experience.

  4. Hi raincoaster,
    thanks for the reply so quickly.
    well, one blog has been on the go for over 3 years, two have been around for a few months and two are very new.
    I am trying to use Twenty Ten as a theme for 4 of them.
    I didnt know about the "tutorial package" so thanks for that, i shall study it
    when setting up etc, i am in dashboard and try to add through the widgets app, but no matter how do it, they do not appear on the final blog.
    thanks again

  5. What browser and version are you using?

  6. I am using
    IE 9.0.16 64 bit
    hope that helps

  7. a) Make sure the compatibility mode is off.
    b) Try a decent browser, namely Firefox or Safari.

  8. Hi Justpi
    i now have firefox as my browser and the problem remains,
    how do i turn off compatibility mode?
