Widget on homepage

  1. I can't seem to figure out how to add a widget onto my homepage - is this possible? I wanted it in order to add some links to my homepage.

    The blog I need help with is rmbodenheimer.wordpress.com.

  2. Familiarize yourself with that way that theme works. You need a sidebar in order to do that, but you have it set to open on a static Contact page. I'm not sure if that theme displays sidebars on individual pages http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/twentyeleven/

    I am new around here and i am having a widget of a problem myself, i almost didn't bother. I am still hoping to learn what to do, i think there is to much information. Just saying.........

  4. I'm in the same boat. I've read the support page too many times to count and I still can't see my widgets. Can anyone help?

  5. I can see your widgets just fine on the left underneath the title. You have a search widget, what looks like a Recent Posts widget as a drop-down, and an archive widget.

  6. There should be a "Follow Blog" invitation box, Twitter timeline and a text box...IDK what I'm doing wrong. ;-(

  7. Are you putting them in the SAME sidebar as those widgets? How have you configured the Twitter timeline? What are the visibility settings on those widgets? What did you put in the text widget?

  8. I put three Widgets in the Main Sidebar
    Follow Blog: Follow Sweet & Simple
    Twitter Timeline
    Text: For The Record

    Visibility Settings for Follow Blog
    Show if:
    Page is Front Page or
    Page is Posts page or
    Page is Post or
    Page is Can’t We Just Be Happy or
    Page is In My Considered Opinion

    Visibility Settings for Twitter Timeline
    Show if:
    Page is Posts page or
    Page is Post or
    Page is Can’t We Just Be Happy

    I created this Widget on my Twitter Page

    Tweets by @ljbxu
    <script>!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0],p=/^http:/.test(d.location)?'http':'https';if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src=p+"://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");</script>

    and this WordPress short code

    [twitter-timeline id= 475823527174500352ljbxu=2ljb.wordpress.com]

    Visibility Settings for Text
    Page is Posts page or
    Page is Post or
    Page is Can’t We Just Be Happy

    The Text Entry Reads

  9. Please read this detailed article on your theme: http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2011/05/04/workings-of-duster/

  10. Thank you, but...oh well, :-(
