Problem Editing Text Widgets

  1. This is the first time I have tried to edit text widgets since the big upgrade and I am having a problem. When I click on the edit tab on the widget I want to edit I can only see the right half of the text I want to edit. The left half of the widget is hidden behind the left hand column.

  2. I expect you are using IE6 or 7. This is a know problem for IE, and I'm sure staff will get it sorted out, but in the meantime my suggestion is to download and use Firefox. If, when they get the IE issues ironed out, you can uninstall FF if you wish and go back to using IE.

  3. Wow, thanks for the quick reply. That worked like a charm. I already had firefox but I don't usually use it so I didn't even think to try it.
    Thanks again.

  4. You're very welcome, and happy blogging.

  5. Hi,
    I have a problem with editing text widgets too on one of my blogs, tippedearclan.wordpress.com. My issue is that the "EDIT" link is not visible on the widget I want to edit, "Kitties looking for homes". Strangely, it is visible on all the text widgets in use. I am using firefox.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

  6. I have the same problem.

  8. Hi windowmyface
    Thanks but that doesn't solve my problem. I am already on Firefox, and my problem is only on that one text widget. I can edit and update the others fine.

  9. Anyone else able to shed some light?
