Tested version 1.1 on Elgg 1.7.6. With Lazy loading set to "No" everything seems to run fine. But when keeping Lazy Loading on some widgets showed no content on the profile page, for example the Message board and Tidypics widgets. After editing / saving the widget settings of the Message board widget the entries showed up again (at least momentarily as I encountered a problem soon afterwards...). The problem is that editing the widget settings of the Tidypics Latest picture widget resulted in a white screen when saving the settings. So, it seems that it's necessary to disable lazy loading (which is the default setting) for the Widget Manager plugin to work at the moment.
Another issue: With Lazy loading off it works on a test installation. But on my main site I've got the problem that the Latest Album widget of the Tidypics plugin had vanished after switching from Draggable Widgets 2.0.2 to Widget Manager 1.1. When I wanted to add it again I noticed that the list of widgets was empty both with Lighbox on or off. Could the php version used on the sever be the reason (5.2 on main site, 5.3 on test installation)? I don't know what else could be the reason as the other plugins are the same and the position of Widget Manager is the same in the list. It also seems not caused by the browser used as I've tried it with several.
I can report another (small) problem. With the plugin enabled the and the setting of "disable lazy loading" = no the message board on the profile page doesn't show the part where you can enter text. Also the RSS feed reader Simplepie only loads the RSS after you pressed save but then not always displays the text. It appears to show the edit box three times in a row and then doesn't display a feed.
i found that in 1.7.6: with disable lazy loading enabled -> both the lightbox and usual widget adding dropdown box were empty.. no widgets to add.
with disable lazy loading->disabled - the messageboard widget is incomplete and the video widget that was on the page dissappeared.
also, regardless of lazy loading settings - when i edited the izap videos widget to show a particular video out of the list of ones that are available - only two videos were listed as options and when i set one to be the default video to play, only those two that were originally listed were shown in the widget's main file/view list.
also the tidypics widgets are empty.
thanks for the coding joroen, anyhow, this is definitely a great improvement to the widget system.. i'll keep an eye for updates :)
