I have status update installed and have chosen to use it as a widget, so have that option chosen in the settings. When I put it into a widget, however, I get the message in a pink box "Please, switch your placement settings to maunual in plugin settings." I am not sure where to do this, since I cannot find this setting.
Also, I was hoping I could put this widget into a shortcode widget box supplied by my theme X2 and then put the shortcode into another widget that has 2 columns. Not sure if this will work, however.
Incidentally, I also tried putting this plugin into a regular widget area and I received the same message.
Thanks for any help!
