Display/output a specific widget instance using either a shortcode, function, action or wysiwyg button.
At least 2 posts on this problem. No real help from the developer.
perfect solution for adding widget outside the sidebar. what i did was added my own custom sidebar and then added the widget i wanted to it and configured the options and then used this plugin to add that widget to my home page.
No way to see any activated widget in the dropdown ; support is just not there.
