    You can paste text or HTML markup into a Text widget. Or is that not what you meant?

    There is also a plugin that will let you insert PHP code in a widget, as well as text and HTML

    Esmi, I ment when you for ex want to edit, copy from from widget to another. It won`t let me mark text and copy it. Neither cut text. Have to use backslash. ??

    I’ve just managed to cut, copy and paste markup back and forth between 2 text widgets without any problem using FF3 on WinXP.

    OK. Im using Vista. so thats the problem?

    I don’t have a Vista machine to hand right now but I’d be really surprised if that was the cause. I’d be more inclined to look at:

    1. the plugins you’re currently running.

    2. the theme (is this a problem in all themes?)

    3. the applications you’re running at the same time on Vista

    It sounds like there’s a conflict somewhere…

    It`s the same in all themes. don?t know about the others

    Try deactivating all of your plugins and see if that helps.

    Any solutions?
    Its very tricky having to write each code again and again not being able to copy and paste. Why isnt this like in a ordinary editor?

    Does anyone else have it this way?

    the solution is to disable your plugins then check to see if its fixed. then you re-enable your plugins ONE by ONE until you find the problem. Just like you were already told.

    And this is already been covered elsewhere – there are LOTS of plugins that are causing issues with the widgets page.

    I know whooami.
    I just tried again, deactivated all 9 plugins I got.
    But I still can`t markup html or cut or delete code/text inside a text widget.

    WHAT COULD BE THE REASON?

    kjagen: Nobody else has this problem, apparently. I can copy and paste in widget boxes just fine. So you need to figure out what it is about your particular setup that’s causing this issue.

    Hm. OK.
    Will my widgets be lost if I reupload the text widget plugin?

    Anyone.
    will my textwidgets be gone if I reupload a new textwidget plugin?
