Support » Fixing WordPress » can’t get latest entries, categories to appear regardless of theme

  • This is my blog but regardless of whatever theme I choose (including the default), I can’t get latest blog entries,categories, and archives to appear in the sidebar. I manually put in the php code for those themes and they still don’t work.

    Has anyone experienced this?

  • If you are using widgets (and you do!) there is no use to edit anything in the sidebar.php – widgets overwrite everything.
    You can’t have both: either widgets or manual editing.

    Ah…gotcha. How would I turn off widgets then? Just delete all the widgets that I have and that’s it?

    and yes- apparently, I’m using widgets.

    Don’t drag any widget into the sidebar (in Presentation > Themes > Widgets) and it will display what is coded into the sidebar.php file.
