I hope I can explain this. I do not have a problem any more. I fixed what I needed to.
As I am learning more about WordPress and its themes, I see not all themes are the same in functionality. I use the free ones at this time, so will change what I can and live with the rest. The theme I had used until recently was Selecta, but wanted something different. I have 5 widgets, but one is "invisble", the Statcounter.
I tried something else, but wanting to see a theme outside of Preview as a full screen, I activated it. That was when I learned not all themes allow more than two widgets. I found the Statcounter widget in the Inactive widgets and tried dragging it, but it didn't take. Somehow after trying several themes and wanting to find one I could use the Statcounter in, it was no longer there. Not sure what I did and it was probably something on my end. I reinstalled it, so all is well there.
So basically, I am wondering if there can be an easy to see warning saying what might happen when we switch themes?
Just now I was looking over the theme page and noticed some give good descriptions telling how many widgets it supports, etc. and others not so much. One mentioned a few of its features, closing with "and more." Without activating a theme how do we find out the "and more."? Can all features be listed or a link to show in detail what each theme has?
Maybe these ideas are already things that exist. If so, could you please show me the way?
Thank you so much.
