I've enabled a static front page, with the Front Page Template applied. In the "First Front Page Widget Area," I've enabled a search box and a text widget, but these items don't show up as a sidebar -- they show up below my main text area.
Any ideas about why this might be happening? I've looked at the Front Page Template code in the Editor, but can't make much sense of it (I don't know much CSS and no php).
Any help would be appreciated!
