    I have followed, to the best of my knowledge, every single step of the installation but WIDGETS does not appear in my presentation menu.

    I did a clean install of 2.0.2 and nothing.

    Anyone have some trouble shooting tips?

    Thanks,

    Jay

    Deactivate any admin themes, make sure 'sriptaculous' directory is in wp-includes/js ?

    EDIT: One person reported they had to disable Now Reading plugin.

    If the Sidebar Widgets doesn't appear in the presentation menu after you have activated the widgets plugin, then your theme does not support sidebar widgets. Switch your theme to one that is widgets enabled, or modify your theme to enable the widgets for it.

    1. Is there a list of widget enabled themes(rather than a list of all themes)

    2. Even though my prob may be resolved by johnpiercy. I would like to know how you can modify the current them to enable widgets.

    3. Johnpiercy - thanks for solution will use if I need to.
    There's been alot of users with same prob involving widget enabled themes.

    winspire: What theme are you using now? It's quite likely that there's already a widget enabled version of your theme out there, unless you made your own.

    If not, then adding widgets is still easy. I could tell you how, but I'd still need to know what theme you're using so I can look at it and tell you what to change.
