Updated: Dec. 31, 2008 Changed to the new theme last night/this morning. Had to delete all the widgets and re-add them, but all are working. WP Support staff also fixed the double entries to the RSS feeds. So, everything is working fine and well again. Happy New Year to all. ~ DS
Updated: Dec. 17, 2008 Changed back to the theme with the working widgets, once WP fixes the technical problem I’ll change it to the new theme again.
Updated: received a message from support on WordPress saying that they are having trouble with widgets today and are working at getting this technical error fixed.
Changed the theme again but am missing most of the 49 widgets. I’ve added a few back like Recent Posts, although I had to use an RSS feed for it. So, pardon the bareness, hopefully the technical error will be fixed later today. I’ve written to the Support people on WordPress and just waiting to hear back. (Did receive one message but it wasn’t helpful; she said the widgets were working not realizing that those that are working are ones that I added just today.)
Thanks for your patience.
