    Right now, no. But, I will look at maybe making a widget. This seems like something I should have done a long time ago.

    In the meantime, this is a workaround.

    That worked perfectly. Very simple fix and the form looks great.

    I was able to put the form short code into a text widget in a site I’m building using the Weaver theme. Unfortunately, it’s breaking the footer div on the page:

    Note how the footer extends across the width of the frame, and is not included within the page outline shadow as it should be.

    The W3C Validator is complaining about the Visual Form Builder html tags.

    I tried the functions.php workaround, but that did not seem to have any effect.

    Any suggestions? I like this plugin a lot and it would be great if I can get it to work in a sidebar widget without breaking my layout.

    Thanks very much!

    Mary, you are missing a Fieldset that is supposed to be at the top of your form.

    Ah-ha! That was it. I just found the information that the Fieldset is required in the Help. Thank you! Best, Mary

    This is a workaround.

    Just FYI, the Pro version now has an official widget.
