I would like to change the order of content that is showing in my sidebar. When I drag a widget into it, it deletes the rest of the sidebar that’s already there, probably because I’m using a custom theme. I would like to have it in this order (starting under the searchbar)
Your problem has to do with how the theme is designed. Those elements are hard coded to be above the dynamic sidebars. You’ll have to edit your theme templates to change it. Look in your theme directory for the files beginning with ‘second-‘.
Thank you. I have managed to get my Recent posts to show up everywhere. Now I only need to figure out how to get the order correct. As you say, the tag cloud and comments are hard coded, but I use a widget for my recent posts. So is it even possible to get the widget above the other two?
