    Hi there, I've just install the WordPress widget from http://automattic.com/code/widgets/ . It's not working. I've upload it to the wp-content/plugins/ and activated it.
    When I click on Presentation, the widget tab isn't there.
    May I know how do I fix it ? Thank you.

    If you are using the default theme, did u replace the sidebar.php and functions.php with the files in
    wp-content\plugins\widgets\default

    Oh, I don't know I need to replace them, sorry.
    So if I'm using other theme what should I use to replace?
    Thanks in advance.

    From the README:"If you find that the widgets are not draggable, there are two likely causes: you installed the scriptaculous files in the wrong place, or your web browser is not running the scripts."

    Check these paths:
    wp-themes/classic/functions.php (optional)
    wp-themes/classic/sidebar.php (optional)
    wp-themes/classic/default/functions.php (optional)
    wp-themes/classic/default/sidebar.php (optional)

    wp-includes/images/rss.png
    wp-includes/js/scriptaculous/builder.js
    wp-includes/js/scriptaculous/controls.js
    wp-includes/js/scriptaculous/dragdrop.js
    wp-includes/js/scriptaculous/effects.js
    wp-includes/js/scriptaculous/MIT-LICENSE
    wp-includes/js/scriptaculous/prototype.js
    wp-includes/js/scriptaculous/scriptaculous.js
    wp-includes/js/scriptaculous/slider.js
    wp-includes/js/scriptaculous/unittest.js

    If one doesnt want to just replace their sidebar.php, is it easy to alter it to make it Widget-accessible?

    Is this:

    "<?php if ( function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') && dynamic_sidebar() ) : else : ?>"

    the only line that is needed to be added to one's sidebar.php?

    Thanks for the help Yosemite. 1 more question I couldnt find the answer to-- my theme has no functions.php -- but if I want to integrate widgets into my theme, what should I do about this?
