can't see "get_sidebar", what is calling my sidebar? (6 posts)

    I'm using a theme that seems to be set up a bit differently than the basic type, and I can't figure how to remove the sidebar from single post pages.

    here is my single.php:

    <?php get_header(); ?>
    	<?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    		<div class="post" id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
    			<h1><?php the_title(); ?></h1>
    			<div class="meta">
    				<?php if(get_option('uwc_dates_posts') == 'on') { echo '<div class="date">'; the_time("l, F j, Y"); echo '</div>'; } ?>
    				<?php if(get_option('uwc_authors_posts') == 'on') { echo 'By '; the_author(); } ?>
    			<div class="entry">
    				<?php $subtitle = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'subtitle', true);
    					if($subtitle) echo '<p class="sub">'.$subtitle.'</p>';
    				 <?php the_content(); ?>
    				<?php the_tags( '<p class="tags"><small>Tags: ', ', ', '</small></p>'); ?>
    				<p class="postmetadata alt">
    						on <?php the_time('l, F jS, Y') ?>, filed under <?php the_category(', ') ?>.
    	<?php comments_template(); ?>
    	<?php endwhile; else: ?>
    		<p>Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.</p>
    <?php endif; ?>
    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    there is no get_sidebar or include function but the sidebar is showing, any idea how its requested here?

    This is just a blind guess, but check and see if it is being called from footer.php.

    thanks, didn't find it in the footer but checked the header while at it, and seems like its called from there.

    how would I go about calling a different sidebar for index.php and single.php in this case? is there a way to call a different sidebar based on which page the header is on at that time?

    would I be able to use something like this in sidebar.php?

    if (is_page('index.php')){
    	<?php include(TEMPLATEPATH.'/sidebar-index.php'); ?>
    elseif (is_page('single.php')){
    	<?php include(TEMPLATEPATH.'/sidebar-single.php'); ?>
    else {
    	<?php include(TEMPLATEPATH.'/sidebar.php'); ?>

    if (is_page('index.php')) get_sidebar('index');
    elseif (is_page('single.php')) get_sidebar('single');
    else get_sidebar();
