  • Sorry, but I have searched on this, and I can’t find any answer. Hope I’m not being stupid (but it is quite likely 🙂 )

    Basically, I cannot find where I should put widgets when uploading them on v. 2.21. Could anyone enlighten me? I would be very grateful.

  • Widgets are “fancy” plugins.
    Upload them as plugins into the wp-content/plugins/ folder.
    Activate them from the Plugins subpanel.
    Then go to Presentation > SidebarWidgets and play (drag & drop)

    Thank you for your reply. I did try that, both with its own subfolder and without but it didn’t show in the widgets page. Maybe I have a faulty widget…..

    Which one?

    Did you activate the plugin after you put it in the plugins folder? The widget won’t show up until the plugin is activated.
