I am editing a theme and when I insert a text widget I have two problems:
1) the background color for the containing div and container disappears giving way to the page wrapper background. I don't understand why this happens at all. This seems to be the case only with the text widget as other widgets do not cause this problem.
2) Text does not wrap. The only way I can get it to wrap is to use
tags. If not, it just goes on forever, spilling out of the div and even expanding the page width. Is this normal behaviour? I tried with another theme and got the same problem. I tried adding padding, margins, borders and still no wrapping. I have seen tutorials in which text wraps automatically in earlier versions of wordpress. Was I dreaming?
