Edit pre-built widget from theme..? (1 post)

    Hey there,

    I'm building a theme for a huge, very established website that is moving to WordPress in a couple months.
    Problem is, I'm relatively new to WordPress themeing. It's going great so far, but I've hit a wall.

    I'm using default widgets in my sidebar with the_widget().
    Problem is, the_widget() doesn't show the widgets in the back-end (Appearance -> Widgets). I want something similar, so that my client can edit my 'prebuilt' widget that comes with the theme.

    Edit: It would be a sort of 'install widget on theme activation', I suppose.

    Any ideas?
    A huge thanks for your time.
