    You kinda have to know PHP if you want to do anything other than show a widget in one location. I tried several times to adapt the examples to my needs, it just makes it show up on all pages every time.
    I actually thought this was another plugin that lets you choose in layman's terms... oops.

    How about some pointers on what exactly the conditional code is that allows more than one location? which brackets or which lines or dashes set that up?

    You are right, WL isn't for the faint of coding heart, and I'm not hiding that. There was a forum thread where I listed/linked to other plugins that do the same job but in a more point and click, fill in forms, sort of way. I think you should be able to find them anyway.

    If you do want to persist though, there are some bare bones notes at

    but it does expect quite a bit of a 'coder background' still.

    Cheers

    thanks, I ussually assume the point of plugins is to avoid having to code, so this through me for a "loop"
    (possible pun intended)

    I've since found what I needed, but thanks anyway.

    In this case it's to avoid editing core WP code but give you the flexibility as if you were

    I may revisit this simply for my own good. The more I use WP the more I realize that in the time it takes to locate the perfect combination of the perfect plugins, I could have learnd quite a bit about coding.
