I bought the Connections plugin, and almost all of the add-on upgrades.
It is a really good plugin.
However after a few weeks of using it I went into the Widgets page and discovered the sidebars are missing.
The sidebars are active and working on the site--just missing from the Widgets page.
I de-activated the main Connections plugin and the sidebars returned immediately to the Widgets page.
How can I have Connections AND Sidebars on the Widgets page?
This is using the Nexus theme by ElegantThemes.com, WordPress 3.8.1 and the most recent versions of Connections and add-ons. Hosting on WPEngine.com.
