If rooted, you can use x posed, and a module to activate it I believe. I am on a custom rom. Maybe look into that route?

I had to go to settings -> lockscreen -> then check on allow multiple widgets. Then go to the lock screen and swipe to another direction and there should be a plus sign. Click that and you can add your widget. The functionality is built in and Xposed isn't required unless you want something like the Always Maximize Widgets module to keep the lockscreen widgets always expanded.

are you on Verizon? or a different provider? Because my buddy is on Sprint, and he gets the Menu Settings you mentioned, But for my Verizon Note2, I don't see anywhere about multiple widgets.. Im Assuming Verizon kept that **** off .. Sucks..
But thank you.. Probably going to have to Root it,

No I am using Verizon, but I am using a custom ROM. Haven't used stock in forever, so not sure if there is a menu subsetting.
