No cms widgets in RWD

SOLVED

No cms widgets in RWD

Hello

    I've defined a widget in CMS| Widgets to appear on all pages this works fine in the standard demo skin but does not appear in the responsive RWD theme.

I've atually defined two widgets each associated to all shop views attached to the proper design/theme

 

Magento 1.9.0.1

Are you running a sub theme?

 

So for example - RWD/YOUR_THEME?

 

If so you will need to create a widget instance for this design/theme also.

No i'm running the "out of the box" rwd/default

Re: No cms widgets in RWD

Have you cleared your Cache?

 

Is this a development store? Would you be willing to let me have a look as it would take a while for me to explain all the possible reasons.

Yes cache has been cleared.

You can check on http://shop-dps.svilupponux.moreinteractive.eu/responsive (write privately for admin credentials if needed).

Re: No cms widgets in RWD

Hello,

 

The widget that you are calling - is it a static block?

 

If so is this static block referencing a PHTML file?

 

Please email me the admin login.

Re: No cms widgets in RWD

Well no, the widget is a chat widget wishig to drop some js in each page.

You can see it in action on http://shop-dps.svilupponux.moreinteractive.eu/demo (load page wait a few secs and you'll see a label appearing on the right down corner).

Re: No cms widgets in RWD

Righto,

 

It appears that the extension/plugin you have installed for the chat widget has not been copied across to the RWD directory.

 

If the extension is installed on default you will not be able to reference the required blocks whilst running the RWD template.

 

Did you manually extract the extension or install it via connect?

Re: No cms widgets in RWD

The extension doen not have any design file, only app/code.

Anyhow even the standard "last viewd products" widget does not appear.

Re: No cms widgets in RWD

Hello,

 

Should be working now.

 

You forgot to choose the block reference in the widget setup on the RWD theme.

 

If you need anymore help get intouch.
