    Im using a child of the twenty ten theme.
    following the instructions included with the plugin, i looked at the source code and it looks like the slug i want is "primary" but the plugin is not overriding the default sidebar on my page (http://liveoutloudproductions.com/wp/lectrosonics-rentals)

    does anyone know if this is the actual slug for the twenty ten theme or if not, what it is?

    Hello Tim,

    Try "primary-widget-area". without the quotes. If you are interested, you can usually find this information in the function.php file where the function register_sidebar() is used. It seems to be the first sidebar initialised in all of the cases I've witnessed.

    Sometimes theme developers put them in other areas, but you can often trace them from the functions.php file.

    Sorry, "primary-widget-area" I edited the post to reflect that (left off the last a) but that will not get passed via email.

    This solved my problem! Mine was "secondary-widget-area" because it was a sidebar widget for "pages" only. Thank you!!!
