    Hi!

    I just added the widgets option to my blog and played around with it and it's very convenient and easy to move stuff around on the sidebars now...

    but I can't edit stuff that I added using the widgets!

    For example -- I want to edit the "Subscribe" section on my left sidebar but I can't.

    Can someone help me please?

    xoxo,

    I don't see a subscribe section... Maybe you're fiddlin' with it right now.

    Are you saying while in the admin Presentation:SidebarWidgets page you can't click on the little notepad type icon to configure the widget?

    Or you can't edit the widget 'file' to achieve what you need?

    I guess that I can't edit the file because there is no place for me to edit something like the ticker in the notepad.

    I'm still not getting it... But I'll jump in ;')

    There are a few ways to change widgets. One is through the admin interface Presentation:SidebarWidgets, where you can 'configure' the widget if the author allows any configuration.

    The other is to edit the widget file directly.

    How do I edit the widget file directly?
    Where do I find the file?
    THANKS!
    xoxo.

    Usually widget files go in wp-content/plugins/widgets...
