Sidebar widgets won't update

  • Went in to change some things in my sidebars and when I save changes, nothing changes on the actual site. Help? I don’t even know where to begin on this one!

    Try logging out and logging back in. Often the changes update this way. I am having a similar problem though where the changes I have made to my widgets do update (after I log out and log back in) but then when I log out again, they revert back to how they were. I don’t know what to do here either.

    You should not have to logout to see changes – if that’s happening, something else is wrong, and Bwananick – if you need help, please start you own thread.

    @lgr – make sure you are clearing any caches — browser and server. That’s the most common reason changes don’t show up.

    I have just solved this problem by clearing the WP-Supercache in settings in the dashboard. Now all the sidebars are showing. @wpyogi, how do you start a new thread? I cannot see where I should do this. Thanks

    For future reference, at the top of each forums page, there is a button “Add New”. Or at the bottom of each forum page, there is the form.

    If you solved the problem, please do not create new threads — I just deleted the one you just posted. Unless you still need help, it’s fine and done here.

    I have solved the wp-cache issue, but you said that I have different problems <You should not have to logout to see changes – if that’s happening, something else is wrong> so I was wondering what it is that is wrong.

    Is that still happening?
