    Missing widgets?

      I'm quite new to the jive world(a matter of hours now), and have noticed that there are many more widgets listed in the admin panel(44 total) than show up when customizing a space.


      I noticed that some won't display if options are turned off(ie blog related ones if blogging is disabled, etc).. However, I can't seem to find a way to get all to be available.


      Some of the ones missing are common ones like new users, members, etc.


      Am I missing something in the admin panel or while customizing?

            Hi Will,


            Could you provide a few examples of the names of widgets you are seeing in the admin console that you are not finding in the application?

              One thing I have noticed is that sometimes widgets have multiple context-dependant versions. Each version is listed separately in the Admin console, but shows up as a single widget in the Customize view.  An example is the Actions widget.  There are several Actions widgets listed in the Admin console, but that's because there is a different version with different actions depending on whether they are in a space or some other structure.

                Here's the ones I'm not seeing in the customize screen:

                I'm working on an evaluation sandbox, so video is disabled which explains the video related components.

                    The Project widgets probably only show up if working in a project. Also, the "Your __" widgets might only show up in the personalized homepage view. That might apply to a few of the other ones too (ConnectionActivity, Private Messages, etc).


                    I'm guessing on this since I don't know anything about your situation, but it's something I've run into before.

                        H_Giles is right, those widgets are specific to certain pages in Jive SBS.
