I have the same problem. Organizing the fields in Tabs does not work. All fields are displayed well. No errors on submit. Nut no value stored in the database, only the default values.

In my case I am using ss 3.0.5 since I can´t get widgets to work on 3.1.1. I don´t care about that, 3.0.5 is still ok, if it works.

Installed the widgets module.
Created new widget Widget1 and Widget2
Created a widget extension for both Widget1 and Widget2
