Support » Fixing WordPress » Cannot Edit Widget After Renaming

  • Resolved Byagi


    Hi There – I was moving around the widgets on my site, and wanted to rename my Recent Comments section. I accidentally put the name Recent Posts and updated. Once I updated, the name on the admin section came back as Recent Comments: Recent Posts.

    Now, it seems that the name is so long that the Edit link that usually shows up next to the sidebar widget names isnt showing up. Is there another way I can edit this? If you look at my site, you’ll see that the names are the same for my comments and posts. I want to change this. Any ideas?

  • Anyone? There has to be a way to change this at the code level. Any assistance would be appreciated.

    To clarify, this is in the Widgets section of the admin. It wont allow me to edit that widget at all. Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated. Anybody? Where can i find the code that controls the widget names?

    Take a look at my site – the section called Recent Posts is really comments. Blah. I need to change it. Any thoughts?

    No replies, but I finally found an answer. Try it in Internet Explorer

    WP should work correctly in FF and IE, but this is a workaround if you run into the problem I ran into.
