Widgets and Sidebars
OK, what is the scoop on widgets and sidebars?
First, there is the default BlogRoll and Meta sidebars that really have no business being on a "commercial" site. One would expect that they would show up in the "sidebar" or "widget" lists on the "appearance->widgets" page, but it appears that in order to remove these I must edit the source code???? Not very elegant, guys.
Next, I tried playing around with widgets. Experiment 1 was to drag a calendar widget into the main sidebar, give it a title, and save it. This does not show on any page that I can see (and I am not using full-width pages). What gives? Bug? Bad documentation? I need to smear blood from sheep entrails on my face before I click save?
Any info appreciated. Thanks.
