Please correct me if some of my assumptions are (hopefully!) wrong.
In combination with Exec-PHP, I am using lots of self-coded Text-Widgets. As far as I know, text widgets are completely deleted when I remove them from a sidebar, so you can't create them and save them for later purposes.
Tabbed-Widget only "allows" existing widgets (What a phrase!), so I have to activate my self-designed text widget to add it to a tabbed-widget.
So my self-designed widget is inevitably shown on two places. If I create a text-widget (=> activate it!), embed it to tabbed-widget and then remove it from the stand-alone position, it is also removed from the tabbed-widget bundle.
Any help how to solve that would be appreciated!
