I would very much like to add to my blog sidebar a widget to present readers with my shared items in Google Reader. It should be easy to do, but I'm having real difficulty and need some advice. Have tried the Word Press forum but it has not been at all responsive to my query or other queries of similar nature. So here I am at my favorite info source DonationCoder.
THE PROBLEM: I'm running ?my blog on Word Press 2.0, which is installed on my webmaster's server. I am able to drag available widgets onto the sidebar -- but when I click on the "configuration" icon, nothing happens -- I cannot configure. I've tried several widget-ready themes and even gone to the wp-administration panel on two different computers. No luck.
A FAILED ALTERNATIVE: With no luck in 2. my webmaster has installed in a separate directory Word Press's new version 2.3. The installation seems to be OK. Several alternative themes work, and my database of posts is intact. However, widget problems again. This time I simply get a list of widgets -- they are not contained in draggable boxes.
Is there anyone here who might know what's wrong? I've been trying to solve this for a full week now, and I'm getting frustrated.
