Because using pages gives you the visual editor, revisions, short codes, easier management and numerous other benefits.
Shortcodes are increasingly important in WordPress and are used to output certain types of content, such as galleries and video, but also by a lot of plugins which don't have widget functionality but which could effectively be widgetised by using this plugin.
That's the name of a WordPress function that lists all pages in your blog. It's used by theme developers to build menus and navigation. Our plugin can remove a page from this list, but it can't remove a page from navigation that's built using an alternative method - such as the new WP 3.0 menu builder, for example.
Make sure that any content you place in a page to be output in the sidebar is small enough to fit in the sidebar - you may need to resize images and video embeds expressly for this purpose.
Sometimes a plugin can't output items in a space as small as most widget areas or sidebars, so in this case you may need to restyle the plugin's output, or try a different plugin. There's only so much we can do here. Sorry!
A very small number of themes can't handle the output from this plugin very well. Try the option to add a clear block at the end of your content - that may help in some cases.
