    Thanks for a great plugin! It works smoothly for me, except for one scenario. I'm using the plugin Social Sharing Toolkit's Follow widget and when I try to configure this with Dynamic Widgets, nothing happens.

    Here's a link to my development site
    http://sunstone.in/management-program-dev/short-course/negotiations/

    The Stay Tuned widget is what I'm talking about.

    I'm using latest versions of WordPress - 3.4.2 and DW - 1.5.3

    Please help.

    It might be this widget uses an old deprecated way of registering it to WordPress. Unfortunately DW can not deal with that. Don't you get a warning / error when you save the DW options for this widget?

    Thanks for the prompt help!
    Nope, no errors. I get the following message on save:
    Widget options saved. Return to Dynamic Widgets overview

    I'm a bit of a novice, how can I find if the widget uses an old deprecated way of registering it to WordPress?

    Here's the dump if it may help:

    I'm in a fix here. Use this plugin extensively. Any other lead would be much appreciated.

    I was going to ask for a dump. Great you came up with that yourself.

    I found the problem. First the really good news: The widget is registered correctly. DW sees it and can handle it. So, why does it fail? Well, this is a bit technical, but the unique name used for the widget is quite long (mr-social-sharing-toolkit-follow-widget-2). That's 42 characters. DW has a limit to 40 characters. That's why it's not working. The good news: I can fix that and will widen the limit a bit up. I'll release a new development version with the higher limit asap. Will let you know when I have that ready.

    Works for me :)
    Is it safe to install this dev version to my live site or should I just make changes for increasing the width?

    Again, can't thank you enough for your support and making this cool plugin!

    Yeah, it's safe to use this on a live site. Not much have changed since 1.5.3.
