We are currently performing some work for a client and are creating some custom widgets for communities within IBM Connections. We successfully created the widgets but when you attempt to drop them onto the community they were only going into the second (or middle) column of the page.
However, when you attempt to add the “Media Gallery” widget it drops into third column (or the right column). After some investigation the way to ensure that your widget appears in the right column is to add primaryWidget=”false” to your widget definition as shown below:
1 2 3 4 5
<widgetDef defId="My Great Widget" url="/myWidget/widget.xml" modes="view" primaryWidget="false" iconUrl="/myWidget/logo.png" />
