I appreciate the help here. I really do. But I get irritated by it too. (I rarely post here, because I usually don't need any help, but I do read others' questions - and notice the snippiness of so many "helpers". The quickness to close topics for the sake of closing them. The sense of treating folks here as if they're morons.) Just because you point to a WP Support link/URL with a supposed answer doesn't mean a topic should be closed. It would be helpful to actually hear from other people who might have the issue or care to respond to it. (I understand the category widget options -- "dropdown", "hierarchy", etc. I mean, geez, am I two-years-old? I've been running a WP.com blog for three years and write my own coding.) What I'm talking about is that today my "category dropdown" flat-out disappeared from the sidebar. (Which is odd enough.) And if I put a new widget back into the sidebar, it no longer has the option to show it as anything other than a long, gaudy, hideous list. My questions are basically: Has anyone else noticed this issue? Is it an theme-thing or WP.com thing? Will it come back as it was or be fixed? Obviously, something has changed. And it isn't user error -- or because I don't understand how a WP category widget works. ;)
The blog I need help with is theirbatedbreath.wordpress.com.
