    pls help

    i accidentally deleted some code in my "sidebar" (i did have backup - i thought - but for some reason i cant figure that out either). I used to be very up on all of this - but honestly, now all i do is post and haven't touched any code in over a year.

    Can anyone tell me what i may have deleted to make my sidebar show up at bottom of page?

    here's the site:

    thanks in advance for any help!

    Can't you just download a new copy of your theme and upload the sidebar file?

    Well, without ftp you are not really able to edit your files, unless you leave them world writable (= open to every happy hacker!) for ages... Bad practice.

    no - i was using the theme editor - that's okay - right?

    That's absolutely NOT okey. In order to use it - you have to make your files writable (chmod 666) which means what I described above. It would be OK, if people would change the permissions back immediately to 644 after editing... but as your example shows - they are left vulnerable, as open invitation for hacking, for ages :(
