    your home page is set to a static page - static pages (and single posts) have, by default, no sidebar in twenty eleven.

    under 'dashboard' 'pages' 'edit page' on the right under 'page attributes' there is a page template 'sidebar template' available which has a sidebar on a static page.

    alchymyth, I spent 3 hours trying to edit the wrong theme, then read your post and realized that I needed to post into the "sidebar template"... this fixed everything. Thanks!

    I am having trouble finding where to edit my sidebar on twenty eleven 1.2
    Can anyone help me out? I am not very experienced with this and had a friend help set up my site but he is basically telling me it's not his problem now and I am stuck with the filler he put in my sidebar.
