    Use WP widget mutliple times on one page

    I am stuck doing some WP customization for a client and I absolutely hate WP (way too limiting) but anyways that's neither here nor there.

    The main page of their site has two sidebars, sidebar.php and sidebar_home.php and both run widgets. The sidebar.php runs adrotate2 and several other widgets but they also want to run adrotate2 in the sidebar_home column but since both sidebar and sidebar_home are used in conjunction with each other I can't see how to use the widget twice.

    Any work around for this that anyone knows of?

    If the widget isn't developed as a 'multi-widget' (which means that you can create multiple instances of the same widget on a page), then I don't know if it is possible.

    Thanks, I had a feeling

    Just another reason to really dislike WP I guess
