I installed jQuery Archive List Widget, and it seemed to work perfectly, displaying years in descending order, with the current year expanded.
Then I installed Select jQuery Categories List Widget, and it seemed to work well, except that then the jQuery Archive List Widget started displaying with the last (earliest) year being expanded instead of the first (most recent) year being expanded.
I'm thinking there's some kind of conflict between these two plugins, perhaps storing their settings in the same spot? This seems possible since they were both developed by the same author.
Have both these plugins been tested running in the same sidebar on the same page?
I would really like to use these otherwise fantastic plugins if the conflict is removed.
