so i had this beautiful sidebar created, with a custom search bar, advertiser images, etc...but as soon as i add any widgets to the sidebar, everything gets deleted (including my search bar) and the widget replaces it all.
i'm working locally on my theme so it's not up on my actual site or else i would link it. but if it helps, i'm using "untheme two-column"
i'd really appreciate it if someone could shed some light on this.
i can get more info if you need it. thanks!
