    Renjus, I've recently updated WordpressMU to 2.8.4a. All of my blogs that already had more than 1 HTML/JS Adder Widgets still display those. However new blogs do not display more than 1 widget when I select more than 1 under settings.

    Can you help? Perhaps this is a permissions issue – what does the widget update to display multiples in the widgets admin?

    Thank You

    Javascript Adder doesn't work in WP 3.3, all my sidebars are disabled as only ONE instance of Javascript Adder will work; multiple instances are ignored. To keep one instance, I put my 5 videos into the one instance. My code is clean,it comes out with random extra space ever 2nd video in Javascript Adder. So, I reduced it down to 2 videos, and it works, so I've lost 3 videos from my sidebar.

    Then I just had the nice surprise of discovering that regular widgets provided IN WordPress NO LONGER work in the sidebar when Javascript Adder is present, it corrupts not just the sidebar, but the entire web page. I am now faced with the choice of ZERO videos but my links, blogroll, categories will function if I eliminate Javascript Adder. OR: keep the videos and eliminate the most important parts of my sidebar.

    I HATE WORDPRESS. I am going back to regular code ASAP.
