I have the feature box activated on my "practice site" and I see the new widgets in "sidebar 2". However, when I refresh the site they don't show up as they do in your tute. I have a contact form 7 widget in "sidebar 1" and of course, wish to place the feature box widgets above it. How do I do that please?

First - you need to refresh your permalinks - right now every page is throwing a 404 error (go to settings >> permalinks - that refreshes them).

You don't appear to be using "Sidebar 2" so none of those widgets will show up.

You also don't appear to have the feature box activated yet.  You need to setup the feature box in Thesis Design Options.

Those pesky permalinks (again).

The side bars showed up on the dashboard, but I had "feature box" set at "do not show". I misunderstood the notice "These settings will over ride the Feature Box Display Options in Thesis Design Options" .

I'm good to go now. Free to play.

Thanks for your speedy response Rick!
