If You Run Out of Text Widgets, Do This!

Posted on August 31, 2007 by Blog Design Journal

Does this happen to you, too? I keep running out of text widgets. WordPress only gives you nine.

So when you have used all nine text widgets, and you just have to add one more script or ad, what do you do? If there’s a text widget immediately above or below where you want to put the new one, no problem!

1. Copy the script or code you need to add.

2. Log into your WordPress admin area.

3. Select the Presentation > Widget editor and open the existing text widget.

4. If you want to add something immediately below the existing widget, put the cursor after the existing text/script/code, and press Enter a couple of times to insert a carriage return or two. Then Paste the new code.


If you want the new feature to appear above the existing one, paste the code/script at the beginning of the text, then add the carriage returns.

(You want to keep the to sets of code separate–so you can easily move the new widget when you want to.)

5. Save Changes. Then view the site to make sure everything looks the way you want it to.

6. If you want to add a line of white space to separate the two features (that are now sharing the same text widget), go back to Presentation > Widgets and open the text widget again. In the blank space between the two sets of code/script, type this:

Then save the changes and view the site again.

So far this has always worked for me. Have you tried it yet? I hope it works well for you, too. Either way, come back and leave a comment to let us know.
