Text widget not displaying in footer

  • Just bought your theme React which looks great. Trying to swap out the widgets in the footer. I’ve created a few simple text based widgets, nothing smarter than text. Clicking save seems to have no affect and reloading the Widgets section makes the text widgets disappear.

    Any ideas?

    The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)

  • Just seems to be the Text widget too as I’ve been able to add other types of widget

  • Hey Pascal,

    Just to be clear about what is going on:

    When you are on the Appearance → Widgets page, you’re unable to stick any Text Widgets in the footer, at all?

    Thanks for the additional info – hopefully we can sort it out!

  • That’s exactly right Andy. They ‘stick’, allow me to enter text etc and even save. But refresh that page and they all disappear. Every other widget I tried worked though, so only the text option


  • Hi there,

    I’m not sure why this is happening. Do you have a link o you website, so we can take a look?

    To clarify, when you “refresh that page”, are you referring to your Appearance → Widgets page?


  • Hi Scott, the link is http://blog.raffle.it and yes refreshing the Appearance/Widgets page.

    I added a text widget to a footer on another wordpress blog just to make sure it wasn’t something I was doing and that one worked fine.

    Very confusing!

  • Hey there,

    I’m going to forward this on to the WordPress.com staff, since I can’t replicate it and I don’t think it’s a theme issue. They should be here to respond before too long :).

  • Hi pasalot,

    It was a strange issue but now you can add and remove the text widget as it should be. I added it to Footer 1 for you :)
