    I think Ed was on to something when he mentioned the javascript invocation. Glad to hear switching to iframe got it going for ya!

    I switched it to the iframe invoke and that seems to have fixed it. Wonder what the issue was. I'm using the static html widget that is using the vbcms_widget_empty_frame template that has this in it:

    <div align="center">{vb:raw static_html}</div>
    Anyway its working so I think I'll leave it. Thanks!

    Very strange, I see the HTML code on your homepage but it's not displaying there either.

    Could you try to invoke that zone in openx using the image code and try to insert that into the widget to see what happens? Also, can you confirm that you are using the Static HTML widget and a vb template that is just stripped of the normal surrounding box for the widget?

    Why would it be rendering on the section:
    http://theandroidblog.com/content/se...-articles.html

    But not on the article within that section?

    It's a javascript issue. If you look at the section page (as it was showing just now, it may change in future) you see in Firefox a "Android After Dark" title, but that text isn't in the source code. It's put there by the javascript, and the javascript is the same on both pages. Look in the source code on the article page for "http://ads.theandroidblog.com/www/delivery" and you'll see that the javascript is on the page, it's just not rendering.

    Then I'd suggest putting in a support ticket and having us take a look at your admincp and cms settings.

    Yes I am sure. I understand they have current layouts. I don't wasn't my articles to have the same layout as my homepage. But I'm using they same widget that shows the long banner on the homepage layout on top of the "follow" widget on the layout the articles are using. It just isn't showing up I don't get it.

    Are you sure? Those two pages you linked to definitely have different Layouts applied to them. They have different widgets on the right hand side.

    I do have it on that layout. I placed it right above the widget that shows the"following" text. But it just doesn't show up.

    It looks like you have a different Layout applied to the Articles section. If you want that widget on that section, you need to add it to the layout there.

    Widgets Not Showing On Articles

    I'm runing vb 4.05. I have these 120x600 banner widgets that you can see on the homepage here:

    http://theandroidblog.com

    I have them on the section that the articles are in but for some reason they aren't showing up. I have the same exact widget placed above the widget that shows the "Follow the Android Blog" text but as you can see it doesn't show up. What is the problem here?
