  • I have 3-4 pages which use customized templates for outputtin specific category posts, but on these pages teh sidebar code does not show the content, it is because i am missing an include, there is a custom code block in the side bar wich requires a specific fucntion, whic get loaded in the standard tempat but not in my custom templates, but not sure where to set it

    side bar code

    <div id=”sidebar”>

      <div id=”pages_nav”>
      <div style=”margin-left:25px;”>
      <?php if(function_exists(“wp_pages_nav”)) {
      } ?>


    sample template

    Template Name: News – No Events

    <?php get_header(); ?>

    <div id=”content” class=”narrowcolumn”>
    $query= ‘cat=-11’; // concatenate the query
    query_posts($query); // run the query

    <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>

    <?php require(‘post.php’); ?>

    <?php endwhile; endif; ?>
    <?php edit_post_link(‘Edit this entry.’, ‘<p>’, ‘</p>’); ?>

    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>

    <?php get_footer(); ?>
