Support » Fixing WordPress » I lost my text widgets

  • Resolved marcelloNYC


    I am on leopard, WP2.7, self hosting Atahualpa Theme

    I had successfully installed some text widgets in the right and left sidebar of my blog.

    Then I foolishly added a mac symbol in my text widget as follows by this command; Shift > Alt/Option > K.

    After I saved it all of my text widgets disappeared from the sidebars, but are still listed as widgets in the widget total for left and right, although they are not present on the blog or on the widget editing page. Also, if I try to add a text widget, it will appear in the editing page, but no in the sidebars.

    This is the error on the main page of my blog

    Warning: include(/home/marce/public_html/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/functions/bfa_text_widget.php) [function.include]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/marce/public_html/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/functions.php on line 30

    Warning: include() [function.include]: Failed opening ‘/home/marce/public_html/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/functions/bfa_text_widget.php’ for inclusion (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/marce/public_html/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/functions.php on line 30

    Thank you in advance,

  • Try reinstalling your theme.

    Note that those text widgets are not the default WordPress widgets, but ones created by your theme.

    Thanks scibu.

    I reinstalled the theme. The error message is gone from the main page and the new text widgets install and work, but the widget count for the sidebars still include the total which includes the tect widgets that disappeared.

    Left side bar 7 widgets – Only 5 are showing, there is still two missing text widgets.
    As long as it doesn’t present a problem with the functionality of the blog, I am ok, but curious to where they are.

    Thanks again,

    Ok as soon as I added another text widget the count reset.

    Thanks a million,
