Widget Compatible Themes (9 posts)

    How do I determine which themes are compatible with the Widget plug-in? I'm using a modified version of Tropical Breeze and that one does not seem to display the widget options while choosing the kubrick theme does, so I know it's installed right.

    Thanks in advance.

    The Widgets concept is still pretty new. Fortunately, a bit of sidebar "hacking" usually gets 'em going right away. That being said, here's a codex article that lists a few and also links to more widget info:

    I could have sworn I saw a tool that helps you "widgetize" your current theme but I failed to bookmark it and can't find it now (nor remember the exact name). Has anyone else seen this?

    Forget about "tools", it's really easy to widgetize a theme.

    Question about widgetizing a current theme. I use Ipact 2.0 by Abelgraphics, I have highly modified my sidebar and am happy with the site...but would like to add widgets.

    I have contacted Abelgraphics to see if he could widgetize the theme for me...but he is too busy with "paid" projects.

    I have also tried the tutorial by Automattic, but I only get a parse errorr (unexpected end in line 113).

    Is there anyone who is willing to look at this theme and figure out what it takes to widgetize it?

    Here is my sidebar code incase you need to look at it:

    Aha, that's the page! I have already widgetized a couple of themes manually and it is pretty easy actually. Thanks!

    bigjon, add the following on line 104:

    <?php endif; ?>
