    Hi there,
    Today I uploaded a site I was building to a live server from my laptop and have since experienced an issue with both the archives widget and the calendar widget.
    The links in both widgets to the different posts are inactive for somereason, when I however on a date that I know has a post there is no option of clicking that date.
    If I use firebug on the website though, I can see that the posts are linked.
    What could be the problem?
    The website is http://www.helenkdesigns.co.il
    Regards
    Ofer

    What happens if you use the default 2012 theme?

    I don't see the widgets at all, even if I add them through the widget menu in the dashboard.
    I have to emphasize that both the archives and calendar widget worked perfectly and still do on my laptop but do not work on the server site.

    Can we see the site using the default 2012 theme & no active plugins?

    I found this error in firebug:
    Failed to load resource:" http://localhost/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/widget1.png"

    Is it possible that the problem lies with the old website being situated on localhost and the new one on a live domain, having some resources not updated automatically to http://www.helenkdesigns.co.il/wp-content etc?
    I had additional issues with most of the images on site today, suddendly they weren't displayed because they couldn't be found on localhost and i had to change it to domainname.co.il.
    But for widgets i dont know how to fix the problem.

    There are, indeed, situations where the change in server environment means that a plugin or theme stops working. Have you tried checking the remote site's error logs for clues?

    there are around 30-40 of these errors:
    /wordpress/.htaccess: Invalid command '\xef\xbb\xbf', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration, referer: http://www.helenkdesigns.co.il/

    I just checked that, but I have no idea what the means.
    Do you know how to change the URL of these widgets ?

    You cannot change the urls of widgets loaded from Appearance -> Widgets. Have you checked your .htaccess file?

    This is the content of the htaccess now(i just edited it via a post i saw online of a similar problem):
    BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule ^(.*) index.php?/$1
    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress
    This is how it looked before:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress

    Are you still having problems?

    From what I can tell the error has yet to repeat since updating the htaccess.
    But the widget issue is still occuring. If I could just figureout how to change the url path than maybe this issue would also be solved.

    I solved the issue, it had to do with a change i made to a selector in CSS.
    I appreciate the help and assistance!
