Making theme widget friendly (9 posts)

    Hi
    I'm quite new to wordpress, but this that I'm starting to pick up a few bits and pieces. I've finally found a theme that I like, and I've just started playing around with it. But, just my luck, it doesn't seem to be sidebar widget friendly (at least as far as I can tell).Here the theme I'm talking about:
    http://themes.wordpress.net/columns/2-columns/792/pulp-10/

    What edits do I need to make to get this thing to run the sidebar widgets??? Appreciate any help I get at this point.
    Cheers

    ps.
    I've read through this and I'm still not clear on what I'm meant to do:

    I followed the links and ended up where I'd started:
    http://automattic.com/code/widgets/themes/

    Any other suggestions?

    If you cannot understand what is there - then you should contact the theme author. There is no other way: you either can do it for yourself or you ask somebody to do it for you.

    The only way to learn it: to follow the instructions at the link above. Everybody learnt it from there. Open the sidebar.php of your theme and edit it until it works...
    WHat else would you like?

    Hi iDodge,

    If you download the theme again you'll see that I've updated it and now supports sidebar widget.
