I accidentally added a widget to my sidebar - and now I can't get rid of the damn thing. There seem to be several other threads on here where people report the same problem, but all of them have been closed.
So, I followed all of the instructions on the other threads - I've tried dragging the widget to each and every available pixel of screen space. I've dragged quickly, I've dragged slowly. I've tried to fool WordPress by dragging outside the browser window and then back in again. Whatever I do, the damn thing won't go away.
I've even tried firing up different browsers to do it, but the problem is the same whether I use Firefox or IE.
Who will rid me of this troublesome widget?
Whoever dreamt up this crazy interface challenge should be taken out and shot. What on earth is wrong with a text link saying "delete", or a nice little "X" icon? Pretty much everything else in the WordPress admin interface seems damn-near perfect, so why has widget removal been turned into a dexterity test (one which, I should add, gets pretty painful after a while for someone who suffers from RSI).
