Hi I’m currently helping a friend build a new wordpress site. She purchased the theme “Clean Theme 2.1” from ‘Folio Websites’. It looks great and all, but she asked me if I could add a sidebar to the design as being single columned, it’s sort of bland right now.
I don’t know php all that well, but I’ve gotten used to manipulating it through a few years of using WP. So far, this is what I’ve done:
in functions.php, add:
if ( function_exists('register_sidebars') )
created sidebar.php with: <?php if ( function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') && dynamic_sidebar(dynamic_sidebar() ) : else : ?>
in index.php, add: <?php include (TEMPLATEPATH . '/sidebar.php'); ?>
So far, the sidebar now shows up as existing when in the widgets section of the wp-dash. However, there’s no trace of it when loading the site itself. I feel like I am missing something very simple but very important. Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
