Widget Order (banner rotator) ordering problem

Hi All,

I’m having trouble figuring out how to display the order of a widget (banner rotator). When I assign the block reference to “Main Content Area” for the banner rotator widget, it appears at the bottom of the main content area.

When I turn on template hints, it shows the template file being used, however, there is no reference in any of the layout files of how this is being called into the page (ive checked the contents (grep) of all our template layout files, default and base layouts, but this doesn’t return anything positive).

Can someone please point me in the right direction with setting block order of Widgets.

Note: I am using CMS > Widgets to manage our widgets. I am aware we can call these widgets through phtml files, but I want to be able to control all the banner rotator widgets from the backend.

Many thanks in advanced.
