    I've installed and activated the plugin, added the feedburner ID and the form does not show up in the sidebar. Please help.

    Can you provide a link to the site that isn't working?

    I installed Sleek on a test site and it appears to work:

    The site is http://www.pharmacyaffiliates.net

    It has two pages so far, the home and a contact page. The home page doesn't show the form correctly. The contact page does, but the layout (2 column) has the sidebar at the bottom. I assumed when using the theme with a 2 column layout that it would look the same on every page.

    Thanks,

    webmiss

    Hi Webmiss,

    Can you confirm that the widget in the Home Top Right widget area has the Feedburner ID filled in, as well as the settings at the end (text for the submit button)? The widget isn't rendering the form, which indicates that the settings are incomplete. I believe that will resolve the home page issue.

    For the contact page, it looks like your style.css near line 730 was modified to reduce the width of the content area to 850px. That is making the overall area too small—forcing the sidebar to below the content area.

    That is outside the scope of an issue with the plugin, though, and should be directed to the StudioPress forum ( http://studiopress.com/forum ).

    My two-cents -- I can't tell with my quick view what the changes were to style.css; it may be easiest to just start fresh with the original style.css for the layout issues.

    Let me know if you need more help with the home top right widget area. If I don't hear back, I'll mark this as resolved in a few days.

    Hi, thanks for your quick repsonse. Yes, the widget has a title, text which says sign up below, text for the button and the Feedburner ID filled in.

    Still shows up on contact page, but not home page. The owner of the site has recent posts to show on the home page, rather than a static page. Would that make a difference?

    As for layout issues, I figured it was a stylesheet issue, but wasn't sure if it was sleek theme.css or the global style sheet for genesis. I'll repost in the forum for the appropriate category.

    Thanks, webmiss.

    The widget settings are set for both widget areas? I've never seen an issue like this and frankly, unsure what would cause the plugin to fail completely in one widget area while working fine in another.

    The recent posts setting is correct, since sleek has a home.php file. The static page option, though, would then use only the primary sidebar and not the home widget areas, which would mean there would be only one widget area to worry about having correct.

    Not sure what you mean for both widget areas. I went into the Appearance>Widgets. Selected the Primary Sidebar and added the widget to it and entered the settings. Should I have done something else as well? I see the same settings if I go to themes, of course the sleek child theme is selected and if I click on the widgets link, select the primary sidebar, the same widgets are there. Please explain.

    Ah, I found what you were talking about. Didn't realize that both the home right and the primary sidebar needed to be enabled for this theme. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

    Awesome. Glad we got it figured out! Good luck with the rest of the site development.
