Just tried out Section Widget in hopes of having WordPress' defaut recent posts widget only display on pages other than the homepage.
I installed the plugin. I clicked on the options and am only presented with "Theme", "CSS Scope", & "Height Fix" as options (I cannot find any of the options shown in the included screenshots). What I was to do wasn't immediately apparent, so I so I clicked through to the Widgets administration page, that is when I noticed that the Section Widget plugin broke the Widget page. The bar on the right (which contains displayed widgets) has disappeared and I am unable to drag'n'drop anything, nor am I able to change "screen options" to disable drag'n'drop administration.
I understand Section Widget has not been tested on 2.9, but it is claimed to work for 2.8+.**. Any advice on what I am doing wrong or when I current version will be available.
The plugin sounds great; I hope to be able to use it soon.
