Hi - I'm having issue with installing widgets on the home page.  I followed the widgets configuration instructions but still unable to get the widgets to display on my home page.  For example: I try to display widgets on the right bar, after dragging the widgets to the right bar I entered widget ID  "text-26" in the "Shape 5 Political Options" box but still couldn't the widget to display.  Can you please let me know if I'm missing something?  Thanks.

The widget ID is for styling the widgets, not for making them appear.  To tell the widgets to show/hide on a specific page, you just need to fill out the "Widget Context" form for that widget in the Widgets admin area.

Can you provide a link to your site so I can see what is happening?

Thanks for quick response.  I did fill out the "widget context" form and have tried every single selection but still couldn't get the widgets to appear on the home page.

I also have "Widget Logic" installed.  Is that something that could be conflict with "Widget Context"?

Yes, "Widget Logic" will most likely cause a conflict with "Widget Context"; they use some very similar functions.

If you PM me login information for your site (you can create a temporary account if you would like, but it needs admin access), I'll be glad to take a look at your settings and see what's causing the problem.

WARNING!: Do Not post site login details on an open board, always send through PM.

I removed "Widget Logic" and it seems to work now.  Thanks.

Widget Logic and Widget Context are both designed to do the same thing, but Widget Context (while still somewhat complicated), is a lot more user friendly.

Feel free to post any other questions.
