I'm using an Artisteer template, if that makes any difference.
I installed the plugin, activated it, dragged the new widget over to the primary widget area, added the two shortcodes I wanted to place there
and nothing else, saved it, and checked, and the shortcode completely mucked up all my pages. If I deactivated it and drag it back to the inactive area, my pages look fine, and I tried just having one shortcode in the box, and that didn't work right either. I'm sure there's just something extra I have to include to make it work, but I have no idea what it is, and my internet searches looking for the answer haven't found it yet.
Anyone know what I need to do to fix this?
