Ok so I have been working on a site for a couple of weeks now with heavy development and from the start I saw that scoops were being promoted to the front page with no votes even though i had the default "10 votes" before promotion set.

I thought this may have been a content issue, like not much content then it populates the front page or something but I have since dropped in alot of dummy scoops and still it is putting them at the top of the page with zero votes???

Also i cannot for the life of me get the drigg blocks to appear on the right sidebar, namely the best scoops and best karma users...

All other blocks are working, theme is fine, just dont know why these things are not working.

So I installed another test site followed the install instructions to a tee and the same thing is happening, scoop goes straight to the front page and the block does not appear on the right hand side and there is no scoops in upcoming.

test site here - dev.webwrk.com

Really appreciate anyones help on this as I am starting to bang my head against a wall trying to work it out!!

Version: 5.x-2.x-dev » 5.x-1.36

Just noticed that the version i set was wrong, i am using the 5.x1.36 as i thought this was the latest being it is the latest on the drupal site where can i get the newer ones from? will they solve any of these problems do you think?

Ok so i sorted the front page issue, wouldnt you know i hadnt checked the promoted to front page off for scoops, i did it ages ago but hadnt posted any content after the fact so i was thinking it didnt work...

But still i do not have any blocks on the right hand side showing up any ideas?
