Footer widget not showing on all pages (9 posts)

    First, thanks for all the help folks have been responding with lately. Here's my next question!

    I'm using twenty ten, static pages only, and my footer widget shows up only on the home page. All the other pages have been created with "Add new page," not "Add new post."

    Any ideas as to why the widget isn't showing on all pages, and what to do about it?

    TIA.

    Footer widget not showing on all pages

    are you saying the footer shows up on all pages but not the footer widgets?

    Yes, that's it exactly. The footer shows on every page, but a footer widget I added shows only on the home page. Odd, yes?

    Check to make sure the <?php get_footer(); ?> function is being called in your page.php, single.php, index.php file. It should be below the sidebar call.

    All were/are present. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks for your time on this!

    Yep, it's there, too.

    Footer is called to all pages, but the footer widget doesn't propagate beyond the index page.

    I've just checked the site out in IE--I use Firefox as my default. In IE the symbol for a broken image shows on all pages but the home page, where again the widget shows up fine. I'm going back into the widget's html to see if I can make a change there that will fix it.

    TAA-DAA!!! That did it! Earlier I had img src starting with "wp_content/," so I changed it to include the entire URL for the image. Still, would be great if all the pages could find the file internally, instead of having to go around the internet's elbow to get to the site's thumb, so to speak.

    Thanks so much for your help. It took ruling out things to get me to the point of seeing what else it might be.
