[resolved] Content Sidebar wants Widgets? (2 posts)

    I added a new page to my WP blog via the WP-Admin, and the page is displaying the following message:

    The content sidebar has been activated on this page/post but doesn't have any widgets added to it. Add some widgets to this sidebar in appearance > widgets in the admin.

    I'm using the Station theme. When I view Widgets in the WP-Admin, the only sidebar to which I can add widgets is the main_sidebar.

    What is the "content sidebar", and how do I add widgets to it? My "main_sidebar" does have widgets on it already.

    Interestingly, when I Googled the error message, I came across a bunch of sites using WordPress that have the error displayed, but I couldn't find any solutions. Nor can I find the error message (or part of the error) in the WordPress 3.0 code base.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Hmm, it seems to be an issue with the Station theme itself. I edited the theme's config_sidebars.php and added a new register_sidebar() call for "Content Sidebar", and now I can see the sidebar. I'm curious if the sidebar is supposed to only be in the Pro version of the theme and the load accidentally made it into the free version. *shrug* Anyhow, that seems to have been what the problem is.
