however… I’m simply trying to put Flickr thumbs on my sidebar. I ‘ve come across several flickr widgets, however, even though my custom theme says widgets are allowed…. when I activate the flickr widget, or any widget for that matter, it does not work / show up.
Well, I was able to manually insert code into the sidebar with the help of a plugin. The flickr is now working on my site. However, I was and am still unable to activate widgets into the sidebar via the WP admin.
