There is a way to open the default widgets "archives, categories, meta, calendar, custom, other" and change the content of the widgets in the widgets control panel. I did it once on the "other" widget before. But for the life of me I ether threw some kind of software switch (I am a retired 2 way radio tech, sorry if I throw a radio jargon in there) or I am having a senior moment because I just can't remember how to do it again. The only widgets that I can change are the 2 I made with the widget builder. When I click on any of the default widgets outside of the side bar in the widgets control panel I get in the pull down menu just "primary sidebar, content sidebar, cancel and add widget. When the widget is in the sidebar "still in the widget control panel" and I click on the down aerrow all I get is the "title bar, #of post's to show box, display post date, delete, close and save".
