OSX 10.11.5 WP 4.x Atahualpa(all) Safari, Firefox, Chrome
you are on an old release of atahualpa the current release is 3.7.8. Because of WordPress requirements, you will have to edit index.php and put the new widget area code just above the loop (line 15)

You could just use a plugin like TPG Get Posts that allows you to put a shortcode on a page that displays posts.
