I'm running the plugin Sidebar Module - Reloaded which is a rework of the original Sidebar Module plugin by Nybble. I believe it is far superior to the current (2.6) WordPress widget system. It also allows unlimited text widgets, php widgets, etc. SBM Reloaded works with 2.6, but it disables the admin dashboard, resulting in this error message: Fatal error: Call to undefined function: wp_register_sidebar_widget() in .../wp-admin/includes/dashboard.php on line 34.
You can go directly to other admin pages, and all works fine, so you have to avoid the dashboard main page altogether and bookmark wp-admin/edit.php or another interior page.
I'd really like to get some help with this plugin and possibly resurrect SBM. Thoughts? Ideas?
