I installed the Dark Maple theme in a test directory, added some posts, pages, sub-pages, categories etc and while looking everything over I found a bug in the nav.
Everything displays perfectly EXCEPT when I click on the title of a post to see the full-page version. There's no sidebar. I checked the single.php file and found the line calling the sidebar. It has "//" within it.
Removing the // will cause the sidebar to appear, but BADLY. The bg image doesn't appear, so the text is basically white on white...and it's not in the right place on the page. The menu is at the bottom of the page. And, as I said, basically invisible without the contrasting background image.
Why doesn't the sidebar image bgle.gif display on the perma link pages? Why is the menu all the way at the bottom of the page? How do I correct these problems?
This is ONLY on the permalink pages. Everything displays perfectly on all categories, pages, sub pages, subcategories, homepage, etc. The problem seems to be confined to the single.php file.
