    Hi,

    The Sidebar dropdown selection does not work - no selection options are displayed. Same results with IE, FireFox and Chrome.

    Did you create any sidebars with Simple Sidebars?

    This is similar to the problem I reported in my more recent post. After upgrading to Genesis 2.0.1 and GSS 2.0.1, here is what happens:

    1. previously placed simple sidebars still work if the page was created before the upgrades and had a simple sidebar attached to it.

    2. New pages created won't be able to get the simple sidebar (the sidebar area will be present but completely blank

    3. When you edit any page (whether created before or after the upgrades), the panel for Sidebar Selection is non-functional. You see the title of the panel ("Sidebar Selection"), but there is no dropdown at all even though in the plugin you have created several sidebars. Intead, there is an extra border below the title box as if it is trying to form the panel but can't

    I reverted to Genesis 2.0.0 and Simple Sidebars 2.0.0 and got partial resolution. See my newer post dated 9-9-2013 for details.

    @azdesertgator - please don't post the same issue in two thread. I answered the thread you started here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/simple-sidebars-201genesis-201no-sidebar-selection-dropdown?replies=3

    Hi,
    I encounter the same problem as the thread starter, i.e. no dropdown selection options are displayed except ''default''.

    I did not create any sidebars. But I use the Genesis Layout Extras Plugin. De-activating this plugin does not make any difference.

    Has any solution been found yet? Thanks.

    I did not create any sidebars.

    You need to create at least one sidebar before the plugin can give you an option to select a sidebar.

    I have created 2 sidebars in Simple Sidebar. They both show up in the drop menu but neither displays on the specific web pages. I did click UPDATE but no luck. Any other suggestions?

    @SoFlaDesigner - are you running a caching plugin?

    Not sure what you mean by a "caching plugin".

    I'm using the Modern Blogger Pro child them. I just installed all plugins including the Genesis Simple Sidebars.

    I just reinstalled EVERYTHING, but I still can't get the sidebars I created in Genesis > Simple Sidebars to display. I am able to select the new sidebar of my choice in each page's editor. But they don't display.

    One thing I don't have is a plug-in on the widgets page that allows me to move simple sidebars plugin into the Primary Menu area. Could that be my problem?

    Thank you!

    I just noticed each of the sidebars I created in Genesis Simple Sidebars appears on the RIGHT side of the widgets page, where the Header Right, Primary Sidebar, etc. display. When I click on each new sidebar I can see the text each holds.

    I need to clarify: I can see the contents of my new sidebars but they still don't show up on the web pages assigned to them. Would appreciate any help. The site is located here.

    Thank You!

    I was having the same issue: no dropdown selection options are displayed except ''default''.

    It took me a while to figure out that the plugin does not recognize widget areas created via functions and will only work with widget areas created using the plugin. I thought that might be worth mentioning in case anyone is having problems because they tried to code in their widget areas.
