I’m attempting to create a blog using the Vigilance theme, and I want to include text in a text widget. This is the procedure I’m using, some of it based on advice previously given in the forums: (1) I write the text in MS Word 2007, (2) I copy the .docx file to WordPress’ Write Post editor, using the “Paste from Word” feature in the Kitchen Sink menu. (3) I format the text in Visual Editor, making use of the Kitchen Sink options. (4) I switch the text to HTML mode, (5) I copy the coded text, paste that into the text widget, and save.
My problem: When I look at the blog, the formatting of the text in the sidebar is erratic. Some paragraphs have the desired font size, others are much smaller. All the headings are too small. Bullets have disappeared.
Please help. I’ve been stymied for weeks. What am I doing wrong?
