    I followed the directions and added my widgets, configured and saved them, but they are not showing up on my page. Is there something I missing?

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

    Do you understand that until you create content there is nothing that some widgets can display? I am asking this because the blog is private and we Volunteers cannot view it.

    Examples:
    A Recent Posts widget has nothing to display until your publish a post.
    A Categories widget has nothing that can be displayed until your publish a post.
    A Links widget has nothing to display until your create a blogroll in your Links section in your dashboard.

    P.S. Please forgive the “your” where “you” is intended. I am visually challenged and my app app does not catch those. Unless I tediously focus and examine each an every word before clicking “submit” they bypass me and I don’t have the time to do that tedious checking.

    I have published a post. I’ll make it public for a while so you guys can take a look. Thanks.

    The widgets aren’t showing because you messed with their Visibility settings: you set them to display on author pages only. Open each widget, click the Visibility tab, set the second pulldown to “–Select–” (so that nothing is selected), Save.
