Widget won't display on Home Page (2 posts)

    I love the idea of this widget. Basically, I need some widgets to display on Pages and not on Posts. This is working brilliantly - except for the static Home Page. For some reason, the widget refuses to display there.

    Any suggestions?

    I even tried making a new widget set to display ONLY on the Home Page, but still nothing.

    In fact, I've noticed this widget doesn't work on the static Home Page at all. I tried to hide a lot of the blog-related items for the Home Page and that doesn't take either. Hmmmm .... works on all other pages.



    (I'm working on http://www.brandonwcarson.com - it's his photo I'm trying to display on all pages but not posts.)

    Michelle, there are 2 types of home page in WordPress:

    1. home page defined by is_home() function - if your home contains a list of your posts
    2. front page defined by is_front_page() function - if your home page is a static page, not posts list

    Try using front page and home page in RW settings and see if it makes the difference.
