Widgets Won't load on my homepage (17 posts)

    I have never had problems with my WordPress site until now.

    I have the Graphene Theme installed on my website http://www.tvtalkwithjwalk.com/. Everything is fine, but the widgets menu on the right hand site isnt there. Its just a gray, blank bar. I didnt notice it because the widgets bar shows up on any of the pages I have, or next to any post...but not the homepage.

    PLEASE HELP!

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    Yes, I did all of those and still nothing. I installed a different theme and the widgets worked fine. I really don't want to change the look of my website and install a brand new theme because of this problem

    What template you are using for this page? I can see that some of the page templates of this theme don't have sidebar

    I am using the Graphene theme. It has a side bar. Here is the homepage http://www.tvtalkwithjwalk.com/ without the sidebar, and here is a page with the sidebar http://www.tvtalkwithjwalk.com/2012/07/25/check-out-nbcs-new-comedy-campaign-learn-why-there-will-be-no-more-comedies-like-community-the-office-and-30-rock-anymore/

    Have you done some changes in the theme? I just tested it on my site and it looks fine

    Yes, I've tested it with one of my installations and it is fine. May be if you don't have a custom code in the theme you can try to update it?

    Really strange problem. I can see that there is option in the admin panel to enable different sidebar for the homepage, do you use it?

    I have no idea then. I have tried and the only way I found to don't have sidebar on the homepage is this option to be selected and the homepage sidebar to be empty.

    I'm going to different themes and none of them have my widget sidebar on the side, which makes me think its something wrong with the settings. is that any help to anyone?

    I had the same problem and figured it out.

    Go to the HOME page and go into edit mode.
    Along the right side under PAGE ATTRIBUTES, under TEMPLATES, select 'Two colunms, sidebar on the right' (or whatever layout you want).
    Update and that should fix the problem!

    Hope this helps you!
