Hey there. After many hours of tinkering around with my template I have finally got my design the way I want it. However, my theme is not widget enabled, and I do not want it to be. I am happy with the design the way it is, but when trying to add links and images to the sidebar, it is not updating immediately after I refresh the page, and sometimes not at all.
One way around this (well, it worked once) was to download and install the “disable wordpress widgets” plugin, however, as I found out via google, other people are getthing the same error as I am when navigating to /wp-admin/ when this particular plugin is active:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function: register_sidebar() in /home/trendy/public_html/wp-admin/includes/dashboard.php on line 12
Deleting the “disable widgets” folder from the /plugins/ directory allows me to login to the admin dashboard, but I would like to just be able to get this working.
