Hi Tristan,

I'm building a website with Corporate Response template and have run into an issue that I don't know if it is a bug or if this is how it is supposed to work.  Here's the scenario

- I set up the first page with no sidebars (right, right insert, left insert, left).  The content displays in the entire width of the template window, as expected.
- I add a second page and use a text widget in the right sidebar.  As expected, the width of the content window shrinks to accommodate the right sidebar widget.  The width of the content area plus the width of the right sidebar text widget now fills the entire template window.
- However, now if I navigate back to the first page, the content window is now the same size as it was on the second page.  But unlike the second page, the first page does not have a right sidebar text widget and so that part of the template window is empty.
- If I go back to the second page and delete the right sidebar text widget, than both pages go back to showing the content in the full width of the window.

Is this the behavior that I should expect or is this a bug?  If so then it would mean I would have to put a sidebar on every page even if I did not need or want one on every page.  Also I tried this in both fluid and fixed widths for the template and the columns.

Any thoughts?  Thanks.

Please grab the custom version of Widget Context from the Shaper download for the most recent club release.

There is a bug in the official release of Widget Context that prevents site areas from being hidden correctly.  I've created a custom modified version of the plugin that solves the issue, and the person who found the solution has submitted the fix to the plugin author, but the official release still has not been updated with the fix.

Until the official version of the plugin is updated, the one I'm including in the latest Shapers will work, and I've adjusted the code a little so it shouldn't update until the official release has been fixed.
