My right side bar is not showing at all on the presentation menu, though the are some default right side bar when looking at the blog it self.
my blog is: http://www.trektheunknown.com
Can someone guide me whet I need to do? I lloked at the help and tryied different solutions, non of them worked.
I have this part in my index.php file/ maye that means something:
$current_page = $post->ID; // Hack to prevent the no sidebar error
can someone also tell me what this part means?
That code simply checks to see if the current page is for a single post as indicated by the post’s ID number, and if so it includes the file called sidebar-right.php.
It also means the Theme developer did not “register” the right sidebar correctly for it to show up under your Presentation menu ( I assume you mean so that you can put widgets in it?)
EDIT: (sorry I mispoke so corrected here)
If you don’t need to add widgets then registering your sidebar(s) is not important – but if you want your sidebar to show up on all pages that use your index.php file then remove the line that checks if the current_page = $post->ID
I want to add widgets…so it seems my sidebars are not registered properly.
here is the relevant piece of code for that:
if ( function_exists(‘register_sidebars’) )
‘before_widget’ => ‘<!–sidebox start –><div id=”%1$s” class=”dbx-box %2$s”>’,
‘after_widget’ => ‘</div></div><!–sidebox end –>’,
‘before_title’ => ‘<h3 class=”dbx-handle”>’,
‘after_title’ => ‘</h3><div class=”dbx-content”>’,
as I said, on my presentation menu the 1nd side bar doesn’t appear. but it seems to me from what I read that this is the way it suppose to be registered. am I wrong?
in 2.5, the widget presentation area doesnt show all sidebars at once. theres a dropdown menu to choose your sidebars and add widgets
