Advanced Text Widget in Header Widget Area
I created a widget area in the header, then I placed an Advanced Text Widget in the area. I tried to set the widget to only show in a particular page. This caused the widget to not show in any page. The feature does work in a side bar. It will show if set to show on all pages. What do I do now?

BTW, I am trying to have a unique text description of each page at the top of the page. I get the same description at the top of every page. This seems like it would be a common desire. Am I doing it the hard way?

Thanks, Jim

Can you post a URL to your site. I'm not sure what you mean by unique description.

The description Vintage Fiberglass Fly Rod appears at the top of all pages, but I would like a description unique to each page.

There are a couple of ways that come to mind to do what you want. One is the plugin Widget Context or Display Widgets which let you select which pages your widget will show up on. The other, which puts a field in your page where you put the content you want to show up in the widget area, is Page Sidebars. The latter is kind of old but seems to work fine.

:)Thanks Larry. It will be a couple of days before I can try these.
