    How can I tell if my theme at http://carrotsandclaret.com supports widgets?

    I recently added and configured 'Image widget" but nothing appears in the sidebar of any post or page....

    The Twenty Eleven theme (and therefore your child theme) support widgets.

    Thanks Esmi... so any idea why nothing is appearing in my side bar, I checked add to all posts and pages and also tried putting in individual page URLs....?

    Perhaps there's a problem with this 3rd party widget. Try adding something like the default Pages widget to your sidebar to confirm this.

    Okay thanks Esmi, will test it with that, do you happen to know of an image widget that works...?

    I'm not sure what you mean by an "image widget".

    I want to put some text with a photo (of a product) like an ad on the side of my pages...

    that is the default behaviour of Twenty Eleven - the forum is full with answers to this 'problem.

    for instance, try using the plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/twenty-eleven-theme-extensions/

    You could use the Text widget for that if you know some HTML.

    If anyone else had this problem, the main obstacle was in the page attributes.. the page needs to be changed to 'showcase sidebar', Im now working on solving the problem with the jetpack image widget...
