    Hi to all,
    Whilst editing my text widget, I realised I cant highlight, cut, copy, and paste the entered codes/text in it. So if I want to cut it, I have to remove it all. Unlike before, that for a user like me who is not really familiar with codes would just copy and paste stuffs, and highlight texts. I hope somebody can help us.

    Somebody in this forum too experienced it…

    So help us to solve it. Many thanks in advance.

    I have the same issue with the text widget. It’s also not very practical to see each sidebar seperately in the widgets section especially when I try to drag one or more widgets from one sidebar to another.

    Besides that everything seems to be operating well to me (at least yet)… I quite like this new dash-stuff… Great work! thanks :)

    This I have noticed is a problem with IE7 and the new wordpress. It is not a problem with Firefox however. I expect staff will work through the problem, but for the moment if you are using IE, download Firefox and use it. Once the problem is addressed you can, if you wish, uninstall Firefox and go back to IE.

    The problem is also evident on IE6. I’ll wait for the fix. No FireFox for me.

    I have tried on trail and error basis on how to insert a text Widget to the sidebar widget. It seems it only accept input in the form of HTML Codes only. If you try to copy and paste an image directly and insert it into the Text Widget it won’t work.

    That is correct, but there is no change there. It has always worked that way.

    The Text Widget has never been able to accept images by copy and paste method. You’ve got to figure out how wide and tall the image you want to use then use the uploaded tool to get it on wp.com server and get the URL from within the Editor to include in the widget. Make sure the path is correct and the image will appear. I format my buttons with image width of 170 px max.

    shimworld is right. but as for editing the content like highlighting, using crtl+A, etc in the widget, it is not now possible. only we have to do is using delete or backspace, or remove.

    Windonmyface,

    Hai…as I said earlier the only way for a text widget to work is by inserting HTML Codings into the text box. Normally HTML codes will start with<begin…..” something and will end with…” End> This open and close bracket options will distinguished between different sets of texts or images to be inserted into the Widget Text Box. You could actually insert as many HTML codings sets in one Text Widget one after the other in contenious sets.In order to delete or edit and of the unwante set ,we have to distinguished the beginning and ending of each set of text or image to be deleted or edited.

    I have tried this and its seems to be working. In fact I could insert not only one,two or three sets of HTMlL codings in one Text Widget but as many sets as I want. Why don’t you try to visit my Web Site and see what I’m talking about. For your info all the advirtesment you will see in my right sidebar is done all by using HTML Codings..My URL address is http://jay530401.wordpress.com

    Good luck…. Jay

    Yes, actually before the new dashboard was introduced, i was already putting lots of html codes in one text widget, and it works, too. :-)

    “Mark the begining ,highlight with your mouse until you find the end” — thats where my problem starts. Cannot do it now with the new dashboard. No more highlighting using mouse… I just can’t do the highlighting thing. What i can only do now is use the del or backspace button, OR remove it.

    well, thanks for the efforts jay! Apa kabar? your an indonesian right? I saw your blog with Bahasa Indonesian dialect. :-)

    Jay you’re going to want to remove those advertisements from your blog that you mentioned. They’re not allowed here on wordpress.com; staff will come through and zap your blog in a hurry.

    Why don’t you use this shortcut:

    Compose the widget as if it were a Post, on the Write Post page. Save it as a Draft only, never publish it. Play with it until it looks the way you like, then click the Code tab and copy all the code. Paste that in your text widget.
