Text plugin for side bar? (2 posts)

    I am very new to the program and am trying to find a plugin to put text in the side bar.

    One advice site says "the text widget" is on the installed program but it is not on mine. When I search for it I get a shed load of options but none seem to fit the bill.

    Suggestions please?

    Also where do I find the version I am using as it was installed for me by a third party.

    When you say "I search for it" I assume that you mean you looked in wp-admin->Appearance->Widgets?

    The 'text widget' is a core WordPress function/feature. It should be there. "third parties" shouldn't be jacking with core files. It is possible to disable widgets via a theme's functions.php, though. Look for unregister_widget or wp_unregister_sidebar_widget.
