    I'm using the Responsive theme, and for some reason, the home widgets don't show up on the main page like they're supposed to. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

    Hi,

    Yes they do work :) Please see: http://themeid.com/forum/topic/849/wordpress-video-text-widgets/ and if you have any questions please let me know.

    Thanks,
    Emil

    It's not a text widget, though. One is supposed to show recent posts, and the other a search bar, but neither widget even appears at all on the page. Only the sidebars are there.

    Right, the rules are the same, drag+drop and voila you're done :) Examples http://themeid.com/showcase

    Right, well I can't drag and drop them, either.

    In that case I would check your browser, clean the cookies, temps etc, close and restart as well. If you have any other browser, please try that as well, just to see if this is a browser-specific issue. Please note that this would happen with any Theme because widgets are part of the WordPress itself and something is preventing them to work properly.

    If that doesn't work, deactivate all plugins and check the widgets again and your last step is to switch back to Twenty Eleven Theme and go back to Responsive!

    Thanks,
    Emil

    Okay, I got them to move around, but they still don't show up on the main page. They are in the right place on the widgets page, though.

    I know that's what it's supposed to do. Obviously it's not doing that because I wouldn't be here if it were.

    the url is fsuarchive.org

    Oh, you're not using default layout that's why :) Home widgets are available only if default home page is used. You can switch back and reverse, please see: http://themeid.com/forum/topic/537/reading-settings-changing-default-homepage/

    One more thing. Is there a way to make the call to action button go to a random part of the website?

    Most definitely, go to Appearance > Theme Options > Home Page and add any URL you need :)

    Well I mean, can I make so it goes to a different page every time?

    Sorry, that would not fit with current Theme Options and honestly not really sure how such integration would function. You could try plugin but I don't think that there's anything like that available, I might be wrong, please see: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/

    What's needed is probably some logic behind JavaScript which would show different link each time the page is refreshed. I would go with slider, like Meteor, Responsive or Orbit, that's the closest you would get, without having some customize this for you.

    Hi Emil,

    I'm having problems seeing the widgets on my home page too. I have tried all of the above and still can see them. Do you have any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Hi Emil,

    I have dragged and dropped text boxes into home widget 1, 2 and 3 and made sure that I am using the default template. I still can't see them.

    Sorry - spent ages trying to figure out why?

    This can mean that browser you're using doesn't have JavaScript enabled, can you please check that and also try another browser.

    Widgets are part of the WordPress and if JS is enabled and if the setup functions correctly, widgets should be a snap :)

    Also go over the plugins and make sure that some of them don't interfere with this as well (deactivate > check > activate or delete)

    Thanks,
    Emil

    Hi ariella_y,

    I came across your website when looking for examples of responsive websites on my mobile and I noticed that you aren't saving your images for web. Your homepage alone is almost 3mb. That's huge for a mobile device. You might want to reconsider using smaller sized images.
