How do make the sidebar on the MainPage use a widget instead of the default recent post list it is providing?
the frontpage sidebar is hardcoded (no widget area) – to replace the code with a widget area is a bit of work so I can’t help you with it but you can try to replace the sidebar yourself by following the instructions here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/ (Purchase code hidden if logged out) -area
