I’m not sure how to modify the sidebar. I want to add my feedburner count and some ads. Usually I just edit sidebar.php and I’m fine, but I think this theme can’t do that because it’s widget ready or something, I’m not sure to be honest.
Then use the widgets. If the widgets are active (and since 2.2 they are built-in, so they always are active) – they override whatever you have in the sidebar.php file’s code.
Put everything you want to appear in widgets: text, phpexec etc.
It seems that when using the widgets, I can add anything I want except things like divider bars or header bars. I can add them in the sidebar that contains the default content (which I simply edited the content) But I can’t get an image to show up, is there a place I could find code for adding an image to the l_sidebar.php or should I try and contact the ambient_glow designer?
