Hello. I wonder if anyone can help me. My widgets don’t have a delete button only if I drag an element into it. For example, I have 2 blog widgets and I want to get rid of one. I created a blog page and a blog post was already available. Could this be the problem? Which is better to use, pages or posts for the blog? Should I be using the blog template then delete the page?http://griefcandorandlove.com
Blogs are a collection of posts.
I don't understand what you mean when you say:
My widgets don’t have a delete button only if I drag an element into it.
You're supposed to drag widgets into widget areas. Widgets have delete buttons, widget areas don't. Widget areas can only be removed through code.
Oh. Well I have 2 blog widget areas. How do I get rid of one of them? What code do I remove?
You have to look in functions.php for register_sidebar() functions. This is how widget areas are created.
If it's not there, it could be coming from any template file or even a plugin.
I think it’s a template but I deleted it. However, I didn’t empty the trash. Therefore, why would it still be showing up?
I found out what the problem is! There was an extra blog entry in the Genesis Simple Sidebars area. This is where the editing takes place for the sidebar widget areas..where you can add and delete widgets so that’s why there is no delete button in the widget area.
