I just installed and activated Widget Logic, latest version, for WP 3.3.1. The Codex instructions show you what to put in the Widget Logic bar in the simplest case, eg. default setup, homepage left as the blog, want the sidebar to show on only the homepage. I put in what they suggest: is_page('home') and the widget disappears off ALL pages.
So I put in other people's various suggestions for example ones that start with if_is(home), etc and all I get is Parse Errors on top of the webpages and on the widget area.
Where is there a real, useful, newbie, English (not coder) explanation of what to fill in the Widget Logic box? (and please not the WP codex page on Widget Logic because I've already explored it all and it does not tell me what I need to know.)
