    Hi I cannot get the arbitrary widget to show up in the template I made however it does show up in the preinstalled templates that wordpress has. a child theme has been created for the original template.

    Could you please explain more what's the problem?
    The way this plugin works is that it gives you a shortcode, like [widget id="text-1"] which you can use anywhere that shortcodes are enabled (like in posts or pages content) or using the do_shortcode() function to output that widget anywhere in a template file.

    I am trying to make this plugin work and always get literally the shortcode in the post. What am I doing wrong?

    Only thing that comes to my mind is, maybe the plugin is not active!
    Try using the do_widget function in your template file, see if that works.
