Since migrating to SS3.1, I can't see my widgets tab in the blog holder page anymore.
I use composer to update all modules, and so should have all the latest modules, framework & CMS:
"description": "The SilverStripe Framework Installer",
Any idea why I can't see the Widgets tab please? When building a SS3.0 site, all that needed to be done was to have both modules installed, dev/build?flush=all, add a blog holder and voilá the Widgets tab was there. Are there any special steps involved in getting Widgets working with the blog (and the Widget tab visible) with SS3.1?

Looks like it is necessary to explicitly add the widget extension to BlogHolder… Is this a bug or deliberate?

Where did you add the below?

I put that config code in: /mysite/_config/sitewide.yml. That's where I put all my config code and module config overrides.
If you want to add the widget area to holder pages also, here's the code:
Hope that helps.

Awesome stuff. Thanks that worked.
I upgraded from version 3 to 3.1 so I had to create the _config folder. is there anything else I needed to do?
I'm assuming it picks it up automatically.

That's great. Yes it should pick it up automatically. Great you got it working.

I installed a fresh 3.1.5 and the latest widgets and blog modules. The widgets tab is missing and the blog entries also don't show in the blog holder. I tried to create a sitewide.yml file with the given code but that didn't help. It's kind of discouraging that the blog and the widgets modules don't work out of the box. I would be very grateful for any help to fixing this problems - thanks!
