Dynamic Widgets
[resolved] Compatibility with WP 3.7.1 (6 posts)

    I downloaded the latest development version (1.5.6.2) of dyanamic widgets hoping to use it on a WP 3.7.1 site but it isn't working for me. Is it me or is it the plugin? If it's the plugin, do you know when it might be available for 3.7.1?

    I have a text widget below the menu that I only want to display on the home page so I set DW as follows:

    Show widget default on static pages: NO
    Except the page(s): Front Page, all childs

    Thank you!

    DW works on 3.7.1

    There can be several reasons why it's not working for you. Most of the time it's theme related. Try OLD method. That helps many times.

    Hello,

    I also have difficulties using the plugin on a theme that I currently develop. None of the settings I choose work. Can you please advice how to make the theme compatible with it ?

    In sidebar.php I have this:

    <div id="sidebar">
        <?php dynamic_sidebar(); ?>
    </div>

    And then I register a default sidebar like this:

    if ( function_exists('register_sidebar') )
    	register_sidebar(array(
    		'name' => 'Default sidebar',
    		'before_widget' => '<div id="%1$s" class="widget %2$s">',
    		'after_widget' => '</div>',
    		'before_title' => '<h3 class="widgettitle">',
    		'after_title' => '</h3>',
    	));

    What am I missing ?

    Thank you @Qurl for your reply. Rather than hassle with other implementation methods (I'm sorry I don't know what the OLD method is) I chose to install another plugin for this purpose.

    Please read the FAQ how to switch on the OLD method.
