My Thread Keeps Getting Closed Here?

    I accidently posted a thread twice, and both were closed (instead of smartly keeping one open and noticing it was a mistake). I hope a bot was closing them, because there’s no excuse for a person to keep closing the threads. Then, I had to open it a third time (since they were both closed), but it was closed again. The (third) thread in question is here:

    The blog I need help with is dexterfannet.wordpress.com.

    Making sure this one isn’t closed…

    Since the link you provided doesn’t exist, I can’t check it.

    Post your question again here.

    Odd, all three threads still show up for me, but they’re closed. I’ve just got to hope a mod doesn’t close it again for no good reason.

    If you post here – in this thread – we can help.
    Posting even more won’t help.

    Here’s the (fourth) thread, with a note to the mods. I really hope it was closed three times by a bot, because that would be terrible moderation if a mod didn’t notice I need help and accidently posted a thread twice, then both threads were closed by a mod, so I was forced to post it again. Then that happened again, and I had to post it again.

    It does not show.

    Please – post the issue here under this post by me. It’s the best way to go forward.

    Oh, sorry Mark, we posted at about the same time so I didn’t see that before I posted the thread again. Nonetheless, it’s probably best to keep that new thread open so users can tell the problem by the title. Let’s hope this one isn’t closed for no reason.

    Wow, we posted at the same time again. I’ll copy and paste that thread. And another wow for it getting closed again.

    I accidently posted this twice, but somebody closed both (ugh) threads before anybody could post, so I have to post this again.

    My blog (a Dexter fan-site currently in the middle of development), won’t display HTML correctly using the WordPress text widget. The HTML is fine since it displays correctly here if I link the HTML file:

    http://dextercorner.com/blog/Images/FollowDexterCorner/DexterCornerFollow.html

    Here’s an image of how the HTML looks on my WordPress site in the Text widget:

    And here’s the HTML:

    I’ve tried endlessly to get this to work correctly in the Text widget. Any ideas? You can test the HTML yourself if you want. I’m using WordPress 3.0.1 and a custom template. Just a note: I’m not using DexterFanNet anymore, but a (currently private) WordPress blog called DexterCorner.

    Where – precisely – is this widget being displayed.

    Not the code but the widget it is inside. This is extremely important.

    If it is here: you have an entire webpage of code there. You need to just use what you need, tiny parts.

    Well, <meta htt<p-equiv=”Content-Type” isn’t correct. That’s a start.

    I’ve tried multiple places for the widget with no success. It’s going to be displayed in a sidebar to the right, under other images (which I’d like to convert to HTML once I get this straightened out). It’s out that it appears completely wrong in the Text widget, but the HTML is fine when tested, so this has really been giving me a headache. I appreciate any help you guys can give.

    Which parts would I use, though, Mark? That seems like a good start, but I have no idea what to edit out.

    If you are at dextercorner.com you have a blank under construction page that does not even have WordPress installed. and dextercorner.com/blog is broken with server 500 errors.

    You appear to be working on a self hosted WordPress.ORG site so you might have better luck asking them for support since this forum is only for sites hosted on WordPress.COM

    I do have WordPress installed, the site is just currently not public due to my wanting to keep a sense of secrecy until everything’s done. I’ve tried other forums, but I figured this would be my best bet since this site is about WordPress. I could try on my dexterfannet WordPress blog here to humor you so there’s no reason I can’t get help here.

    #516515

    Where is the site hosted that you are talking about?

    There are two entirely different types of WordPress. If your blog is not hosted at WordPress.COM we will not be able to help you, as our software is quite different from the downloadable version. You would need to be at WordPress.ORG instead.

    YES THERE IS A REASON YOU CANNOT GET HELP HERE
