I'm trying to extend the magento widget insertion functionality (under CMS menu). specifically i'd like to add 'Enabled' and also an Active From/To.
I can do this on the admin interface in the normal way, however i can't seem to track down how the layout updates are loaded. ideally i'd like to be able to intercept the point where it gets the list of widgets from the db\collection and apply some conditional logic to ignore widgets that aren't yet active. I know if i get this working that caching could make it unreliable, but that's less of a concern.
If anyone could point me in the right direction, i'd appreciate it.
Thanks in advance.
