    Hi there, I want to make use of the Image Widget seen here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/image-widget

    The problem is i don’t see it when I go to Appearance>Widgets. I have a bunch of others like Text, Calendar, Pages, RSS etc etc.

    Why isn’t the images widget there? Where can i find it? I want a widget not a plugin. This would be the perfect widget for my needs.

    Another thing. I have sidebars and when i add text to them via Appearance>Widgets, its fine. But when i refresh that page, it resets the text for the sidebar to nothing. Any ideas why?

    Thanks alot for any help

    Your local machine is supported at WordPress.ORG. (the software you are using)

    The Themes on WordPress.COM are highly modified with many Widgets added to take the place of Plug-in’s that are not allowed on WordPress.COM – the Widgets add a lot of functions that most Themes in the wild do not have.

    Thanks a lot auxclass.

    Now I understand. So I have to make my own widget or use a plugin. Not what i was hoping for.

    Thanks again though.
