Where did contents of Text 1 (widget) come from?

  • Ok… not critical, but frustrating. Where did the contents of Text 1 widget come from?

    After the install of 2.2 text that I must have written appeared in the widget, but I can’t recall where it was located for editing purposes *before* the 2.2 widgets were available.

    Somehow, during install of 2.2, text from some configuration screen was imported to the Text 1 widget: anyone know where it came from?

    Thanks!

  • That information is kept in the wp_options with the option_name of “widget_text”. In fact all the text widgets keep their information in that same record.

    Just guessing–did you have the old Sidebar Widget plugin ever installed? If so maybe it is left over from that.

    AAhhhh… yes the old sidebar widget was deactivated and, of course, after upgrade it cannot be reactivated.

    That must be it.

    Thank you.

    I can sleep tonight.

    ps: just for fun I might restore old version on another server from backup… a good test of backups, but otherwise pointless.
