Ok, will start using trac. If I get to the point where I understand how
all this works, I'll certainly try my hand at creating some widgets. And
I'll look at your how to.

Yeah, I found this and tried it. The zoom part works, but the
positioning seems to be off. I you load
that should zoom to the center of the map objects. Zoom out three steps
and you will see the features.double click on them to recenter and then
I'm not sure if this is a bug or the fact that the template is not
installing the widgets correctly.
