  • If you use widgets – editing the sidebar is useless: the widgest over-write everything.
    You can move the Meta widgets up.

    On the other hand, sorry to say this: give me a reason why a visitor should register to your site? To comment? That’s not worth it, and you will lose many comments because people hate to register just to post a short comment on your site.

    Well, I didn’t actually choose to make logins a requirement for posting, that is what I got in the “out of the box” install of WordPress. Most blogs I have seen require some kind of login or verification to post, so I thought it was standard. Doesn’t someone have to register to be notified of a posting update?

    What are the alternatives?

    Ok, so I’m taking your point and I found the option to turn off registering as a requirement to post.

    Outside of that, I would still like to move the login link to a more visible location on the page for anyone who would register, and need help figuring out how to do that.


    Oh, I see what you mean about the Meta widget. I wish you had elaborated on that more, I didn’t understand at first. Ok, that seems to be a quick and dirty way to get what I want.

    Is there any way to edit what shows up in the Meta widget?
