not all widgets showing on my server? (4 posts)

    I played around with Coroline on a free WordPress site first before deciding it was the theme for our company's intranet. My supervisor really liked some of the widgets that were available and I really liked how easy they were to assign to different categories or pages. Now that we have theme installed on our web site I no longer see all of the same widget options and the way widgets are handled is different with widget logic instead of the easy way of choosing which page or category etc the widget displayed on.

    Is there different functionality depending on whether you are hosted with WordPress or your own server? I did not have the latest version of WordPress when I downloaded the theme, could that make a difference? We have since updated WordPress but this issues still exists.

    Help! Thanks!

    wp.COM is different, it's a managed service with custom features.

    If what you refered to is this
    http://jetpack.me/support/widget-visibility/

    then you could get it on your self hosted WP by installing this plugin
    http://wordpress.org/plugins/jetpack/

    Be aware that Jetpack is one big plugin, you must disable modules that you don't need so it won't slow the site down running all those scripts.

    Also try shopping around, some of them provide checkbox interface.

    Thanks, sadly jetpack won't work for me because it's an intranet. I have found something about activating a development version of jetpack that won't require two way communication with WordPress, so I'll look into that and your suggestion of finding other plugins. Thank you for your help!

  4. Hi there, as paulwpxp mentioned, WordPress.com comes with a set of built-in plugins, one of which is the Widget Visibility feature.

    Not all of Jetpack's modules require a connection to WordPress.com. Widget Visibility is one of those you can run fine without it. Just activate the module from the Jetpack dashboard, no connection needed, and you don't need to switch on the "dev mode" feature, either.

    That said, there are lots of standalone conditional widget plugins, as paulwpxp mentioned above.

    Good luck, and let me know if you have any other questions!
