FAQ

I installed the plugin but can’t see it. What’s wrong?

If the widget doesn’t show up on the Widgets page:
* Check to make sure the plugin was uploaded to the widgets subdirectory.
* Check to make sure both the widgets plugin and the photos plugin are activated.
* Version 1.3 of the widget won’t work with versions of WordPress older than 2.5. You can download version 1.2 or earlier, which will work with 2.0-2.3.

If the widget doesn’t appear on the sidebar once the plugin has been added:
* Make sure the plugin has been added to the correct sidebar.
* Be sure to save changes on the settings form and in the Current Widgets section.
* Make sure the directory name is entered correctly on the settings page

If the widget title appears but no photos appear below it:
* Make sure the directory name is entered correctly on the settings page

The widget doesn’t work with my theme. How can I fix this?

This widget has been tested on a number of themes and is compatible with all truly widget-ready themes. However, certain formatting settings are “locked” in the code.

The code isn’t locked in stone, however. You may be able to edit the PHP file to adjust things to your particular code. You may also contact the plugin author for suggestions; these may result in a better plugin in the future.
