Can't get Hook Box to "hook"

UPDATE: I figured it out, you MUST name the Hook Box (and Widget Area) for it to work. Because I was just testing I did not name the Hook Box. So, if anyone else has this issue, NAME YOUR BOX! 😉

Working on a .local site I had some goofy stuff going on with both Custom Widget Areas and Hook Boxes, but on a live site I can not reproduce the Widget Area issues, but I can reproduce the Hook Box problem... it no hookie for me.

I watched Eric's video and it all seemed straight forward, so what am I doing wrong?

Video from online site:

Hey Eric, maybe making the "Name" fields *Required.

Just a thought.


I think that's a good idea. I just added that to my list of future updates. Sorry for the confusion. 🙂
