    I saw somewhere that the index widget areas (index-top, insert, and bottom) only work on home/posts page. Does it not work on a static front page? If I choose to show my homepage as a static page instead of a recent posts page, my index widget areas do not show up.

  2. Fact. The index widgets only show up on the "blog" page. The static front page does have page-top and page-bottom widget areas that you can use, and which are roughly analogous (location-wise) to index-top and index-bottom. But a static page does not have a loop unless you create your own. And the index loop calls the index-inserts every n number of posts (you can designate this number in Thematic Options). I hope I haven't made this more confusing.

    Nope, that is exactly what I wanted to know. And it makes perfect sense, but it would be nice to have the option of using the index widget areas on a static page, rather than creating a function to either hide page widgets from all other pages, or creating new index page widget areas. You know what I mean?
