(Not) Completely Lost

***updated below***

No, this is not a post on the popular television show. My problem is much simpler, I think. I was trying to add a nice little button to my sidebar to make it easy to subscribe to the feed for this blog without having to scroll all the way to the bottom of the front page.

I've messed with my sidebar before, so I was expecting this to be a quick mission with results that would satisfy my inner urge for immediate gratification.

Alas, 'tis not to be.

I clicked on the "Layout" tab in Blogger, but there does not seem to be an option to add additional widgets anymore. The best I can do is edit and rearrange the ones I already have.

Anybody know if this is a temporary quirk or a permanent change?

I went ahead and added the link, but the perfectionist in me is really frustrated that it isn't spaced properly.

Sigh. Thanks for letting me share.


Hooray! Problem solved.


  1. Hi there, you should be able to click on "customize" at the top of your blog, then "page elements" should come up. It has the display of everything on your blog. At the top right of the list on your sidebar, is "add a page element." If you click on that, you will see all the widgets inside there. After you have added one, you can drag it around there to where ever you want it to be. At least that is how it works on mine, so I'm guessing they are the same, but maybe not? Hope it helps! :)

  2. YAY!! Thank you so much, Thrifty! I'm glad it looked fine. It probably was fine, but it didn't look the way I wanted it to, and that was bugging me. I'm a little nutty that way. :)

  3. My pleasure, glad it worked for you. :)

  4. I'm glad you got it figured out!

    I'd been having trouble with my widgets too, but I finally figured out that it had something to do with my pop-up blocker. A couple of adjustments, and voila!


Sorry--I've had to close comments down because I've been getting so much spam.
