Hi - I've been having this trouble for a long time - I'll put, for example, a text box into a widget area, and I will click Save or I'll see it save by itself (spinning grey circle). I then click to visit my site and sometimes it shows up and sometimes it doesn't, so I go back to the widgets area, and in that widget, the text box is gone. Also if I move a text box from one action hook to another, after visiting my site and coming back, the text box is back in the old place where it was before I moved it. Also if I delete a text box inside a widget, visit the site then come back, it's back again (not deleted).
Just now I went through each of my inactive widgets and clicked Delete for each one. I then visited my site, came back, and all of them were back again. So in general, after I visit my site, when I go back to the widgets area, the last thing I did looks like it never got saved.
I don't know how I got my sidebar and after footer widgets to work - for some reason they didn't give me any problem.
Right now I would like to put an Adsense leaderboard on the top of my site - I went into Options and allowed Adsense, and I tried putting the Adsense code in a text box (also tried a plugin called Widget Box which accepts html & works for me in other places), and then putting that text box in several places - I wasn't sure where the hooks were exactly so I tried Top Search, Top Bar, Index Pre-Loop, and even Header just so I could see it. Nothing has showed up. I then tried testing some regular text in those action hook areas and nothing showed up either.
I once tried pasting the Adsense code into the Graphene options box, and the Adsense Leaderboard did show up, but it was in the middle of the page all mixed up with my content where it didn't look good.
I have tried emptying my cache and cookies and it didn't help.
Thanks very much for any help! I love the Graphene theme in general!
