text widget not saving text

  1. Where do you go to edit the text widget. I am new at this as if you cant tell...LOL

  2. Dashboard -> Presentation -> Sidebar Widgets and click the small button at the text widget


    This page says that the blogtoys from work with text widgets. I registered at the site and copied the code.

    This is the code
    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" height="170" width="150" data=""><param value="" name="movie" /><param value="undefined" name="BGCOLOR" /></object>

    The text disappears after saving.

  4. That's from This is

    We can't use things like javascript, flash, java or any of the other funky stuff.

    Sorry. :(

  5. Text widgets.?

  6. Try it and see.

  7. I had the same problem (could not edit anything). My 1st best guess was that the code was run through some synatax validator and failed (and thus not saved). Not sure if this is actually the case.

    1. I copied the code in the sidebar (starts with <div id="sidebar">) and
    2 Pasted it into a text editor.
    3. Altered it, and
    4. Uploaded the file via FTP to the appropriate directory. For me that was /wp-content/themes/default.

    That worked for me.
    Hope that helps!

  8. Was there ever a solution to this problem? I having the same thing. I add a text widget to my sidebar. I type nothing but plain old text into the customization window. I close the window. I hit save changes. Nothing appears on my blog and nothing appears in the text customization window if I go back to the sidebar widgets page.

    I'm using Firefox and Flash LNX 9,0,31,0.
