Hello all,

I use silverstripe 2.4.0 with the Blog 0.4.0. What's happening is, on the blog page, it's listing Blog Management, Subscribe via RSS, and the rest of the widgets multiple times.

It was showing 2 of each, when I tried to go in to the CMS and Blog -> Widgets -> and remove them, it added more, so now it shows 4+ of each.

How can I remove these? I've tried via the CMS several times. The changes made there are not taking effect

Attached are screenshots of what I'm talking about.

Thank you!

Hi David,

I'm having a fair amount of issues with the RSS widget (See previous post) myself. Not that it's definitely to blame, but I've had issues after removing it the first time. Now all my widgets are acting up.

I've had limited success with clicking the "Save and Publish" button after removing or adding each widget. Still having issues when it comes to the RSS widget though.

Thank you for your reply. I tried removing each at a time, and hitting save and publish, but still ended up with the same results. One thing that I've noticed is that I have Available Widgets and Widgets currently used being listed twice. See the attached screen shot.

That may be why it's happening? Why would they be listed twice?

The only modification I've made is to be able to have widgets on the home page which I did by editing my mysite/code/Page.php to add this information:

class Page extends SiteTree {
static $db = array(
static $has_one = array(
"WidgetSpot" => "WidgetArea",

function getCMSFields() {
$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Widgets", new WidgetAreaEditor("WidgetSpot"));
return $fields;


Is that what's doing this?

Thanks for all the help

Well, I put the default Page.php back, and I was able to remove all the extra's. Then I put my modified one back and it still looks good, I just can't add or remove widgets from the blog page, which is fine because I don't need to change it anymore.
