Widgets Won’t Work!

    I’ve been trying to add widgets: I’ve dragged them to the sidebar, but when I click on the arrows to the right nothing will open. Actually, none of these arrows will work for me. I’ve tried changing screen options for accesibility, but I can’t access that either because of my arrow glitch. Help!

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

    We can’t help without a link to the blog, starting with http. For one thing, you could have chosen a theme that doesn’t support widgets. We have to see.

    What browser and browser version are you using?

    #391557

    I’m using internet explorer – no clue what version it is.

    It sounds like it might be version 6, but you will have to check in the help menu and click on “about internet explorer” to see for sure.

    it’s version 7- is that incompatable with widgets?

    I have no problems with IE7 and widgets in general, but some have reported issues with it. Firefox is actually the most compliant browser when it comes to wordpress. You might download it and give it a try.

    I just logged in using my laptop and everything works fine! I’ll just do that in the future – thanks for the help.

    Those widgets use shockwave flash, and flash is not allowed at wordpress.COM due to security concerns.

    I’m also having trouble with the widgets and am using Firefox 3.5.2. I’ve tried it with IE 6 as well and no luck with that either.

    I think that is a wordpress problem coz right now seems like a lot of users have the same problem as me.
    I tried to use the latest version of IE but a message appears when I try to access my dashboard telling that IE can’t open the site.
    I hope they can fix it soon^^

    neither my IE 7 or Firefox 3.5.2 work. I cannot even post today. No widgets, no posting, no dropdown arrows activating. A day off blogging it seems. And far from resolved except to all agree it is for the techs to handle now. *_*

    Same thing here.

    I’m unable to add/move widgets and I’m also unable to perform the following tasks:
    – bulk edit
    – change post/page timestamp, visibility and status
    – add/remove tags
    – browse most used categories
    – choose tags from the most used tags cloud
    – clicking on the little arrow on each of the dashboard elements doesn’t expand/collapse the element

    My blog is http://freemetalalbums.wordpress.com/ and I’m using Firefox 3.5.2.

    Thanks!
