I'm new to WP and a code newbie to boot. I've got a couple of questions about the sidebar on my blog in progress.
First, the border and background color for the sidebar seem to be missing. Any ideas why? I'm using the Anthurium Mix theme. I've been playing with the .css style sheet a little--e.g., to replace the masthead with my own graphic, to hide the text that would otherwise appear over the masthead, etc.
I'm also looking at how to go about adding things to the sidebar. I see that lots of plugins are available for adding different features, but I'm just interested in putting a brief quotation or something at the top of the sidebar. I know this is covered to some degree in the Codex, but I'd appreciate being pointed in the right direction.
Thanks in advance.
