I created a set of four widget areas in my functions.php file. Widget areas show up in my admin=>widgets
Added code to call the widgets in the theme. Works great.
Created a widget. It shows up in the widgets. I can drag the widget into the new widget area, add my content; works beautifully.
Problem: When I return to the admin=>widgets page, the custom widget is no longer in the widget sidebar area.
