    Hello,

    Can you help me with a Simpla sidebar widget issue I’m experiencing? I have just set up a new blog. The original template default sidebar shows “Home” and “About” under “Pages” – perfect, as well as other default widgets.

    But when I load widgets into the sidebar all the default widgets disappear. This wouldn’t be a problem except that when I put the “Pages” widget into the sidebar it only displays “About” under “Pages” – no “Home” as per default settings and there is no link or anything to my homepage. This means when someone goes to my About page they can’t get back ‘home’.

    Help!

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

    Please paste the exact URL of your blog when asking questions here, or link your nickname to your blog (as explained in the Sticky 8 Things to Know Before Posting). We can’t help without that.

    Ummm
    no

    2. How to make your name link to your blog:
    Go into your dashboard -> users -> your profile -> then scroll down to ‘contact info’. In the spot where it says ‘website’ fill in the address of your blog and save the changes.
    Now… when you comment here and on other blogs, your name will link to your blog. If you do this before you post your request for help, it will allow forum volunteers to be able to help you quicker since they won’t have to ask you for a link and wait until you come back to post one.

    Or just give us a link starting with http://

    Well, you’ve got it now. So no problem! ≥^,^≤

    The title of your blog will link back to your home page. You could add a text widget to explain that to your readers. That is quite standard these days, but not everyone knows. You could even include a link like this. Or just add a text widget with a link like this:
    <a href="http://bibliopet.wordpress.com/">Back to the front page</a>
