  • I’ve searched both Cutline forum and WP forum and haven’t found the answer to my simple problem of changing the archives list to a dropdown menu with Cutline 3 Column Right Theme without editing the code, if possible. Cutline has a handy tutorial on CREATING archive pages, which I thought I might be able to somehow do in reverse, but the labels in the steps don’t even exist in my Dashboard. For example, after I clicked the Update Options button, the next step #5 is: “In order to ensure that your new Archives page gets published properly, you’ll need to click on the Manage link in the main navigation menu.” I don’t have anything called a main navigation menu in my dashboard. I tried assuming this referred to various dashboard items, but under none of them can be found a “Manage link” to click on. The rest of the directions are even more nonsensical. I don’t have any pages called archives, yet my archives have been working for over a year perfectly fine.

    In Widgets, no widgets are showing in the two sidebars at all, even though my live home page shows a good number of them. I can’t drag widgets out of the sidebars, or edit widgets when they are not there, but they are THERE.

    I dragged the archives widget from the widget menu down into the inactive box. There I could open it and lo and behold it had the checkable box options to “Display as dropdown” and “Show post counts.” Why can’t I get these two options in the widget that is already in the sidebar even though it is not in the dashboard sidebar? How do I get the widget to show up in the sidebar in the dashboard as it clearly is there in the live site?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. My site is
