Upgraded to 2.2 and I *HATE* it.
This widget-ready version doesn't allow me to assign specific widgets to appear on specific pages. Everything appears EVERY PAGE whether I want it to or not.
In my previous version, 2.1.1, I used a plugin called Sidebar Modules by Nybble Labs, which worked with any widget-ready theme. It had the capacity to do exactly what I described above.
I naively thought that since WP 2.2 was "widget ready" I could simply use this plugin and things would run as I normally had them.
After the upgrade, I discovered that Sidebar Modules is incompatible.
I then found a plugin that supposedly disables the "widget-readiness" of WP 2.2.
I installed that one, tried using Sidebar Modules and it LOOKED like everything was working smoothly to me.
Unfortunately, to my readers, the page took an eternity to load or even caused their browser to hang, requiring them to close via ctrl-alt-delete!!
SO... for the past week or so my page has been all messed up and I've lost readership... and possibly income because I sell my artwork and handmade jewelry through my site as well.
Does anyone know a good way to downgrade back to my previous version or have another solution?
*Any* help would be greatly appreciated.
