Widgets disappeared when updating to 1.5.1

    I updated Graphene tonight and right away, noticed Google Friend Connect and Groupon widgets had vanished from my sweepingtheusa.org site. They were both entered into the sidebar html through editor both before, and after the update. In 1.4.1 they worked fine without any issues. Are they not compatible with the new version?

    P.S. I have tried Google Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer.

    Do you mean that you’ve entered the codes directly into the theme’s sidebar.php file using the WP Admin > Appearance > Editor page? If yes, then of course the changes would be gone when you update the theme, since WordPress replaces all of the theme’s files with the updated ones.

    If you wish to keep your customisations when you update the theme, make sure you implement the customisations by using a child theme.
