[resolved] Added Widgets and Sideblog (4 posts)

    To incorporate Asides into my blog I added Automattic's widget along with Sideblog 3.0. Everything is up and running and seems to be functioning well. It works but it also kind of threw my sidbar out of wack. Now I have bulleted headers that I don't want and my Recent Posts were set to only list the last 5 and now since I changed the code it's listing 10.

    Here is the code for the sidebar:
    ________________________________

    <div id="search">

    <form method="get" id="sform" action="<?php bloginfo('home'); ?>/">
    <div class="searchimg"></div>
    <input type="text" id="q" value="<?php echo wp_specialchars($s, 1); ?>" name="s" size="15" />
    </form>

    </div>

    <div id="sidebar">
    <?php if ( !function_exists('dynamic_sidebar')
    || !dynamic_sidebar() ) : ?>

    </div>

    <?php endif; ?>

    </div>
    ______________________________

    and the funtions.php:
    ______________________________

    <?php
    if ( function_exists('register_sidebar') )
    register_sidebar();
    ?>
    ______________________________

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    What about Miniblog?
    It has Archives, RSS, and is easily customised. I have not upgraded it to widgets yet though. But you can use another widget that allows php code to put Miniblog in your sidebar.
    Want To try that?

    I like what I have here with Sideblog, thanks. It took me a lot of breaking my blog to get what I have now. I know these tweaks are just simple code adjustments. I just don't know how to do it.

    So anyone who does please feel free to chime in. Thanks.

    *update*

    I did figure how to make the list not bulleted by adding this simple line to my #sidebar:

    list-style-type: none;

    Now it's just making my Recent Comments only list 5 at most instead of the 10 that are listed now.

    Figured it out. Added another widget for the comments. Fuzzy.

    Ahhhhh widgets.
