This is the first time I have tried to edit text widgets since the big upgrade and I am having a problem. When I click on the edit tab on the widget I want to edit I can only see the right half of the text I want to edit. The left half of the widget is hidden behind the left hand column.
I expect you are using IE6 or 7. This is a know problem for IE, and I’m sure staff will get it sorted out, but in the meantime my suggestion is to download and use Firefox. If, when they get the IE issues ironed out, you can uninstall FF if you wish and go back to using IE.
I have a problem with editing text widgets too on one of my blogs, tippedearclan.wordpress.com. My issue is that the “EDIT” link is not visible on the widget I want to edit, “Kitties looking for homes”. Strangely, it is visible on all the text widgets in use. I am using firefox.
