Can't remove Text Widget From My Sidebar (2 posts)

    I have posted this question in several categories with no response, so apparently I have created an "un-fixable" problem. But anyway, I thought I'd try here too.

    I put a hyperlink in the title block of a text widget box on my sidebar (didn't realize I couldn't do that), but now there is no Edit button on that widget so that I can remove it.
    Does anyone know how I can just remove it from my sidebar without an Edit button to open it up?
    Thanks

    i tried to replicate this, and can't. when i try to put in a <a href= tag it just gets stripped out when i hit save

    you could try admin'ing with javascript disabled in your browser, and then if the edit doesn't appear, look in your HTML code for the link you SHOULD get and paste that in to the browser address bar. it should be something like

    http://yrserverdomain.com/wordpress/wp-admin/widgets.php?s&show&sidebar=sidebar-1&edit=get-recent-comments&key=0 (where sidebar= and edit= and key= will depend on yr setup)

    that should take you to a page with a "remove" link. which again if you can't see, check the HTML code for the right link.

    hope that helps
