    Hi,

    This plug in is wonderful but no longer works with the latest version of WordPress. Are there any plans to upgrade it?

    Thanks

    Hello GlynT,

    We'll update this to work with the newest version of WordPress this week. Sooner rather than later!

    Thanks for reporting this.

    GlynT,

    I updated WordPress to 3.4 and tested it out and there doesn't seem to be any problems on my end.

    Did you happen to change themes? Are the settings on the settings page still there? It is possible, I guess, for them to get wiped on an update.

    Hopefully we can get down to the bottom of this for you,

    Hi IvyCat,

    I haven't changed themes and it was working OK until I updated WordPress this last time.

    When I did the update and all the extra page specific sidebars that I created still existed in the WordPress widgets section but they don't show on the website.

    You can have a look if you like - http://www.benidorm-selections.com/resorts - this is one of the pages that is supposed to have it's own specific sidebar that is not showing...

    Many thanks for your assistance in this!

    When you updated WordPress did you also update your Theme? I can't easily test your theme out because it is a premium theme. However, I can try to walk you through a few things:

    1. Go to Appearance->Widgets in the WordPress Dashboard.
    2. This Step may require FF or Chrome - Right click on the Home or Primary Sidebar (whatever your default is) and select "Inspect Element"
    3. There will be an H3 element with the Primary Sidebar Name within. Directly proceeding it will be a DIV element with an ID. Copy down that ID. (see example here)
    4. Go to Settings->Page Sidebar Settings
    5. Copy the ID from Step 3 into the Text Field labeled Primary Sidebar Slug

    If you are using IE, you might just View the Page Source and manually find the H3 Element with the name you are looking for. Alternatively, if you know the Theme's code well, you can find where the primary sidebars are being initiated and get the name from there.

    If you've already done all of this, I apologize. I'm just starting with the basics in case this was missed. I hope this helps, and hopefully solves it, but if not, We can certainly try something else.

    Hi IvyCat,

    Thanks for your reply... but no luck I'm afraid. I get the name 'sidebar-28'

    However, this is after the H3 element with the Primary sidebar name within (in the same place as "sidebar-primary" on your example).

    I have tried entering it as the slug name but with no success...

    Thanks
