So i'm new to this and dont know how to add widgets to the blog widget list. I have checked the forums and havent found anything and I dont understand the information on silverlight/widget so please keep it kind of simple with examples and detailed filenames.
So I have installed:
the blog module

I can see the widget list with 4 widgets from the blog.
But I want a fifth one the event_calendar widget.

I have installed the event_calendar module and have a working calendar but I cant get the widget to be added to the widget list.

How do i do this?

Thank you!

Hi Phyma,

I'm not sure the Event-Calendar add-on works in this way, I could be wrong.
The reason I say this is because the CalendarWidget.php file doesnt extend Widget, instead it extends ViewableData.

Does the widget work within another location?

I did manage to find some information about the widget not working back in SS 2.4 (all I could find).
The forum post below might help out.
