Default Phone app vanished from lockscreen following update

So after my phone got the kitkat update, the phone app on my lockscreen no longer works. It instead displays the little droid like when you have an icon for an app that's no longer installed. Maybe the app just changed locations with the update, because I definitely still have a dialer app. But I use the stock lockscreen and I can't figure out how to change the four apps at the bottom so that I can replace the bad phone one.

Any ideas? It's preventing me from making calls from the lockscreen, which blows if I'm trying to quickly pull my phone out while driving or something.

Remove the phone from your dock on the stock launcher, and re-add it.

Oh, that actually worked. I have nova launcher so I literally never touched my stock one for more than five minutes after turning on the phone for the first time.

Thanks!
