Blissful Blog footer widgets not showing up (11 posts)

    It's really that simple. I'm using the dashboard to set up some footer widgets in blissful blog, and they're just not there.

    If this is an issue with the coding of the theme--do you have suggestions for what theme to use to build a relatively simple website?

    Thanks!

    No idea without a link to your site. Or if this is the theme you are using? http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/blissful-blog/

    And your site is on WordPress.COM, then you need to be on their forums here:

    My site isn't live yet, that's why I didn't provide a link. It's not at wordpress.com, I'm in the right place. . .

    Doesn't appear to have widgets in the footer. You could possibly add widgets - but that would take some knowledge of coding - see: http://codex.wordpress.org/Widgetizing_Themes

    Or look for a theme here: http://wordpress.org/themes/

    You can use the filter/search function to narrow down your results - it really depends on what you want. Some have more options than others - reading the descriptions and looking at reviews of them will give you some idea.

    Thanks for your help! Actually if you read this description it says that it does have 3 footer widgets

    What do you think?

    That version of the theme may not be identical to the one you have... Themes available on WordPress.COM have often been modified specifically for WP.COM.

    Where did you download the theme from?
