The ads and navigation on my sidebar disappeared (6 posts)

    I was trying to remove a widget (BlogRush) from my sidebar code, because after installing the widget (via "widgets") my navigation disappeared. I copied and pasted the sidebar code into Word before tinkering with it. After playing around trying to figure out how to remove the widget, I went to view the site and found that my ads (BlogHer)and my navigation had both disappeared. So I cut the code completely, and pasted the one I had saved into word back into the sidebar. But when viewing my site, the sidebar remains blank. Please, someone, help a rookie who has no idea where to go from here except to this support forum.
    Thank you
    Brooke

    upload a backed up copy of your last working sidebar.php

    barring that, upload the unedited sidebar.php for the theme that you are using.

    Whooami Thanks for your reply. How can I get an unedited sidebar for my theme? I thought about doing that but don't know how to access the unaltered files for my theme.
    Thank you again for responding.

    Assuming you uploaded the theme --you go download the theme from wherever you downloaded it from before, extract the file, and re-upload it.

    The info for your theme is right here:

    Theme Name: Cymro
    Theme URI: http://www.wales-web-design.com
    Description: A WordPress theme for WP2.1 and WP2.2 from <a href="http://www.mbwebdesign.co.uk">MB Web Design</a>, based on the <a href="http://www.wales-web-design.com">Wales Web Design</a>. Theme header image and colours very easily modified, instructions included in the style.css file.
