You are seeing this message because the theme you are currently using isn’t widget-aware, meaning that it has no sidebars that you are able to change. For information on making your theme widget-aware, please follow these instructions.
I am using the Theme “Memories of the Past 1.1” and i love it!
But i want to make it able to use Widgets, but theres on problem. It doesn’t have a Sidebar defined. I have read “http://automattic.com/code/widgets/themes/” and do not understand any of it!
I love this theme and i don’t want to revert back to another one.
Anyone help me? 🙁
This should work. In sidebar.php, add this just after the first < ul > :
<?php if ( function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') && dynamic_sidebar() ) : else : ?>
Add this just before the last < /ul > :
<?php endif; ?>
Now create a new, blank page in your editor and save it as functions.php . Place this on the new functions.php page:
<?php if ( function_exists('register_sidebar') ) register_sidebar(); ?>
Upload functions.php and sidebar.php to the theme folder. Your sidebar should now be widgetized.
Thanks! I had to do this too. This information isn’t in the instructions for widgitising your sidebar, which I understood completely, and my sidebar was fine.
Thanks a lot!!!
I was about to reinstall everything!! 🙂
thanks, there are really good people here
These instructions sound pretty good and understandable for beginners (I also have no idea what the ‘official’ widgetizing instructions mean) – but what should I do if I don’t find any < ul > oder < /ul > in my sidebar.php? Where should I put the lines then?
I use Lainlog 1.0, and the only thing missing are widgets, but I don’t want to change my theme now I found the perfect one at last.
