I've tried several methods of trying to add my text widget to only one page (my about page) and everything fails! Currently I have a plugin that lets you choose with a text box which page you want the widget to appear on... it doesn't work.

This is the page where it appears... Home Wordpress Page

It should appear here... Wordpress About Page

Here is a snap shot of the backend widget...

I noticed in my image that it says, "Hide on checked" but even when I select the option, "Show on checked," the widget disappears everywhere. – Michael Rader Dec 2 '11 at 0:40

I use a popular plugin for doing this type of thing: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/widget-logic/

Try the Dynamic Widget Plugin -> http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/dynamic-widgets/
