Support » Plugin: Add Widgets to Page » [Plugin: Add Widgets to Page] Works but you must refresh

  • It works but there’s very little explanation of what to do. I have typed out a ‘How To’ at the end of this post.

    Here’s what happened to me.I hop the info is useful

    I installed the plugin and pasted the shortcode using the word ‘links’.
    When I refreshed the page I got a message saying ‘go to Appearances – widgets and please set some widgets’

    When I went to appearances – widgets there was nowhere to drag the widgets I wanted on that page- I refreshed the widgets page and still nothing. I went back and changed the word to ‘special’

    I went back to widgets and refreshed- nothing- I mucked around a bit, forget what I did, but when I opened the widgets page again there was a place below ‘sidebar’ called addw2p – links and another called addw2p-special.

    I dragged the Links widget to the one named ‘special’ which was the name I used in the shortcode and Voila – I have the links widget running on a page. Brilliant

    There could be a better explanation of what happens on the plugin page

    I suggest –
    Install the plugin and place a shortcode on the page [addw2p name=”name”] replace ‘name’ with anyword of your choice and publish the page.

    This will create a new area on the widget page called addw2p – name where you can drag your widgets.

    If nothing shows, please refresh the widgets page. Note: You may have to refresh several times, maybe even close the page and open it again.

    Once the new area appears below sidebar, the plugin will be working.

  • I Just upgraded to the new version and this is what has started showing on top and bottom of all my pages: �_n.

    Here are links to the pages on my two websites:

    Any ideas how to get rid of these? Thank you in advance.

    Hallo
    Ich habe das Problem auch das auf allen Seiten die ich mit “add-widdgets-to-page” eingebunden habe jetzt oben und unten diese Zeichen �_n stehen.
    Das ganze ist aber erst seit dem letzten Update.
    Gibt es eine Lösung für dieses Problem?

    Oder hat schon jemand eine Lösung gefunden?

    Bitte Danke!

    Danke Danke

    Mit dem neuen Update ist der Fehler behoben!!!

    I Just upgraded to the new version and this is what has started showing on top and bottom of all my pages: �_n.

    Sorry about that… I updated the plugin to 1.3.1 and fixed the issue.

    “This will create a new area on the widget page called addw2p – name where you can drag your widgets.”

    There is NO new area in my appearance > widgets and I’ve refreshed the page 3 times. Maybe it doesn’t work with WP 3.1.2

    I’ll keep looking for another plugin.

    Update …

    got it working.

    The instructions need to be much more clear.
    Thanks for plugin.

    Thanks Stingraynut… you helped me get things going.

    To expand and explain what Stingraynut wrote, further…

    After activating the plugin, and placing the code [addw2p name=”links”] on my blogroll page, I went to the Widgets page and under the Sidebars was indeed the “addw2p-links” box.

    Use the dropdown arrow ON that box, and you will see a blank area. THAT is where you drag the Widget to, that you want to use on the page you created. In my case, a Links widget was dragged into the blank box and bingo, my blogroll page now displayed the Links Widget for me.

    Actually, I had 3 Links Widgets (each of a different link category) and I was able to drag all 3 Links Widgets to that blank space within the “addw2p-links” box.

    Hope that helps anyone else.
