I have been reading/ learning codex php instructions for layout and design. Starting from my current theme Multitalentedmommy I'm trying to make some layout changes to the sidebars, I believe that this codex doc is deprecated?
http://codex.wordpress.org/Customizing_Your_Sidebar#Plugin_Resources There are instructions to change the sidebar.php file. But the only thing my sidebar.php file has is some code instructions to get the dynamic sidebar file if one exists. So, where would i find the dynamic sidebar files? I looked in wp-admin-widgetsidebars, and it is just the style and instructions for the admin menu, to select options for your widgetized sidebar. I also looked in the css file for my theme - NOT THERE!! Where do I find the guts of the "dynamic sidebar"?
