Hi rotel,
Thanks for your reply. I tried putting $SidebarWidgets in the code as you recommended, but the rss widget does not appear on my page. When I place $SidebarWidgets in the (/templates/, directly under $Layout, the rss widget appears, in the sidebar, but underneath the sidebar menu, so it doesn't have the nice formatting of the sidebar menu, it's just plain links. If I remove $SidebarWidgets from the code, it disappears. No matter where I place it in the code, it doesn't make the widget appear. Looking at the layout.css, I see the #Sidebar section, but I don't know what I should modify in there.

Hi roterl,

I'm trying to use WidgetManager but the widgets does not show on front page :( I already try it with different themes, blackcandy, itheme, simplestripe, etc. Is there any problem with widget manager and SS 2.4.6 ?

How can I debug this?


ps. I'm not a real developer :(
