    Now I have a text Widget. How do I get back to the input screen so I can edit it – add things and make changes?

    how do you change hte test size in the widget. I want one smaller, but it doesn’t seem to take the tag.

    Whenever I put in some HTML, or a script, the Text widget “edits” the code when I click Save. Even if I use the tags, it still does this. How do you turn that off, or work around it?

    and where do I find this text widget?
    I was searching for about an hour on the widgets menu and I didn’t find it!

      If you head to the Appearance > Widgets menu, you should see the Text widget appear in the left column. It’ll be situated towards the end, as they’re arranged alphabetically. You’ll then want to drag it over to the right side column (click-hold and drag) where you can make your edits and changes. You may find our related video on adding a widget to your sidebar useful for this part.
