  • Hi thearslan,

    What theme are you using?

    You don’t need to edit your functions.php file. You’ll want to find a template file in your theme called sidebar.php. It should have code kind of like this:

    <?php if ( is_sidebar_active('primary-widget-area') ) : ?>
    		<div id="primary" class="widget-area">
    			<ul class="xoxo">
    				<?php dynamic_sidebar('primary-widget-area'); ?>
    			</ul>
    		</div><!-- #primary .widget-area -->
    <?php endif; ?>

    Then you’ll want to add your code above or below the part that pulls in the sidebar widget. Like this:

    Hope this works for you.

    Hi David, Thanks for your reply, As I told you that I have only below code in sidebar.php

    <div id="sidebar" class="grid4">
    			<?php dynamic_sidebar( 'sidebar' ) ?>
    		</div>

    Its nothing else there in sidebar.php.
    And when I put some new code in sidebar.php its showing nothing, Now tell me how can I add something there.

    Waiting for your kind reply
