I uploaded the functions file to plugins and activated the plugin with wp.
I am not using a sidebar but rather a custom theme.
I have inserted this function and many variations (for possible syntax errors) into the spot I want the dropdown:
<?php if( function_exists( 'taxonomy_dropdown_widget' ) ) taxonomy_dropdown_widget( 'post_counts=true', 1 ); ?>
It doesn't return anything. I tested and the function does exist.
dropdown tag list should appear at top of page next to "Search by keyword: "
Am I doing something wrong?
