Support » How-To and Troubleshooting » I must not understand SIDEBAR
9 years, 1 month ago
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.
I guess then I would have to find that ExecPHP plugin or whatever it is that can insert PHP into the Widget sidebar?
