    oh where oh where can they be?
    I was editing one widget and when I saved they all disapperared from sidebar.
    Hellpppp please! :)



    Hello there,

    Sidebars and widgets in them do not fall to the bottom and display below posts and/or posts do not appear in sidebars unless

    (1) content has been imported into the blog

    (2) the blogger has been copying and pasting content from elsewhere, without using either icon 5 or icon 6 in Row 2 of the visual editor http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#pasting-text

    (3) or the blogger has copied and pasted invalid HTML into a text widget or left an HTML tag open

    See here for sorting this out > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2012/05/19/sidebar-at-the-bottom-and-related-issues/


    #1. why is it that with every problem on a blog wp tends to blame the blogger ? Can you people not take responsibilty for the glitches?
    #2. I have not had nor was I trying to place anything on my sidebar exceptthe widgets offered thru wp ie blog stats, archives, followers etc.
    #3 Are you saying wp puts out illegal widgets for blogs if so I have been illegal on all three of my blogs and on this one in particular for 2 years.
    #4. Please fix this asap and quit giving ignorantr answers just to avoid taking care of the problem.
    #5 or Ban me I am at the point of fed up with all the wp negativity . wp seems to be more interested in R & D than customer service, and ripping people off than helping.
    #6. this blog was a paid theme for over a year with nothing but problems such as this and I threw away that money to get a free theme and it is just as bad so I have a very very sour tase dor wp!!!



    #1a. Timethief is not WP staff.
    #3. No she’s not saying that.
    #1b & #4. What glitches, and fix what? I’m seeing 28 widgets in your sidebar. Or aren’t you talking about http://myownheart.me/ ?


    ! then don’t comment if you can’t fix the problem!!!
    2. Yes it is my own heart
    3. there are no widgets on that blog to this writers eyes


    When I went to support for this problem I expected word press support!


    justpi if you are not support either why are you commenting…I poste din support not forum so another glitch for Word press. I don’t neeed comments I need someone from word press to fix this, and this is not the first time on any of the blogs I own. It has been a constant battle and I am niot alone just look at all of the complaints on this subject alone !!
    Now leave it alone so that support can- if they will respond!

    I don’t mean to be so rude but I am fed up I have been fighting this for over a year and it is not right!



    You are being rude, so please stop. By far the majority of support at WP.com is provided by knowledgeable volunteers such as those above who have replied to you. If you prefer to wait until some paid staff stumble across this thread and reply to you, that is your right, but you will be waiting a long time.


    Yes I am being rude, I have tried over a year to get common sense help so leave this alone. Rude you bet I pay just like most of the WP bloggers for my themes and updates SERVICE is what it is about all any of you have provided is junk now leave me alone I am waiting for support from WP and that is the problem they think they are better than any of the people that keep them employed. All of you can respond from here till dooms day I will not respond after this except with my delete button!



    Except you can’t delete my posts, can you? I could flag this for staff attention that would put it at the top of their priority list, but thanks to your manners, I won’t. Nor, clearly, will anyone else.
