Support » Fixing WordPress » I must not understand SIDEBAR

  • Obviously, the get_sidebar() function doesn’t actually call sidebar.php. I’ve actually DELETED sidebar.php and that changes nothing on my site.

    I am using a couple of Widgets on my sidebar, and they work perfectly fine. But, I want to edit in some extra code, and I went to change the sidebar.php and realized it doesn’t do anything.

    How does one edit the sidebar if get_sidebar() doesn’t use sidebar.php????

  • If you are using the widgets – your edits on the sidebar.php are completely useless.

    The widgets are overriding whatever is in your sidebar’s code. You have to decide: widgets or manual edits. yoou cannot have both.

    Yuck. Really?

    I guess then I would have to find that ExecPHP plugin or whatever it is that can insert PHP into the Widget sidebar?

    That sucks.
