    I just searched the codex in an attempt to educate myself, but, I'm still clueless. Can anyone explain them simply or direct to a link that would explain them? Thanks!

    Thank you moshu. I've now downloaded the widgets .zip and it's off to the trouble-shooting forum to find out why it won't work! LOL :(

    Did you find and activate it in the Plugin settings?
    If you can't find it, did you upload it properly? When you unzip the file you get a "widgets" folder inside a "widgets" folder, and if you upload both it can't be found. On your server it should look like this:
    /wp-content/plugins/widgets/[and the actual widget files and folders here]

    Is your theme widgets enabled?

    newflesh - everything was uploaded correctly as per the Read Me instructions and after all the practice uploading various files I've had I'm pretty sure it's all there.

    knotty - I'm pretty sure it isn't. Which is what I think the problem is. I'll not be able to change the code to get it working either. Too complicated for my untrained brain!
