Support » Plugin: Black Studio TinyMCE Widget » Help. It's breaking the sidebar moving widgets to footer

  • I had to turn this off. Apparently it’s generating an extra tag somewhere. All the sidebar widgets below it dropped to the bottom /footer of the blog and looked ridiculous. This happened with the update to 3.6

    Can someone please fix so I can turn it back on?
    I double checked the code I put in and tried stripping it out, so I know it’s not any input I gave it.

  • I’m having a similar trouble using it in my theme. If it is not ordered as the last widget, it breaks the sidebar and puts what is the last widget in the footer and pushes down the main div body text down the page. Frustrating because otherwise it would be a great plugin. Any suggestions for fix?

    Please could you post a link to your site and/or specify which theme are you using?

    Since you told this happened after updating to 3.6, I made some test with the new default theme Twenty Thirteen, coming with WP 3.6.
    I had issues similar to the ones you reported here, however they are not directly related to our plugin. The Twenty Thirteen theme has a strange behavior about the sidebar and footer positioning, as it has a javascript which dinamically calculates the height of the sidebar and moves the footer if necessary. It looks like this calculation is not always accurate (i.e. if there are images inside the sidebar). By the way there are several topics in the Twenty Thirteen support forum.

    I don’t know if you are using the Twenty Thirteen, but anyway please try to take the following tests:

    1. Clone your actual Black Studio TinyMCE Widgets using the native WordPress Text Widget: for each visual widget you have, create a corresponding text widget and copy/paste the content from the HTML pane of the original one. Then disable Black Studio TinyMCE Widget plugin and check what happens. If the same issue occurs also with WP native text widgets, then it’s definitely not caused by our plugin.

    2. Try to disable javascript in your browser (either when using the visual widgets or the native text widgets) and see if the widgets are positioned correctly.

    I’m using Absolum theme. I already transferred everything I could over to the native text widgets and they work fine without breaking the theme:

    When I did a validation check and searched forums, it said something was probably adding an extra tag somewhere. I kind of figured it was something 3.6 suddenly got picky about.

    I am using Sunny Kids theme on a test site with WordPress 3.5.2. The link to main sidebar that is working is It is the last widget area that is using BS TIny MCE.

    I reversed the order of the widgets on our member test page to demonstrate what happens when the widget using your plugin is not last. When it is last, the page is not broken. That url is

    The html is nested between two p tags, no extra tags. Thanks!
