Dashboard widget not validating
There are a few common problems that users encounter when they start to use Widgets extension - we'll try to document them here: This is most likely caused by the widget not yet existing at the moment when the widget page itself is being processed - to solve this simply purge the page, e.g. Widget page names are case sensitive and must match the name of the widget you're calling. don't use when the widget is called "Widget: You Tube", or vice versa.

As of version 0.9 you can use the Flagged Revs extension to enable a widget security review process. Selector .selector_input_interaction .selector_input. Selector .selector_input_interaction .selector_spinner. The Widgets extension allows the creation of raw HTML pages that can be embedded (similarly to templates) in normal wiki pages.To just use Flagged Revs to review widgets, the following configuration should suffice: If you change the location by setting the parameter with another directory, make sure that it exists and that it has the correct permissions. This can be changed if you want, but make sure that it's an even number.
To set the namespace ID, define a value for NS_WIDGET before you include the extension in Local Settings.php: when configuring other Media Wiki properties.
This will enable the Widgets extension to use only stable versions of the Widget:* pages.
