    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    – re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    Try adding an empty Text widget to your sidebar.

    the new pages appear underneath the widgets and the widgets not go away they are static

    I did a site using webplus and thought this looked like it and easier to edit thanks

    Unless you want to start customising the sidebar.php file via a child theme, you might be better off choosing another theme. I’d suggest choosing one from http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/ that has been updated since 2011

    How would you go about getting rid of the line down the right and make the page as one.
    Thanks
