I have been working on converting a template (ID Bands) to my blog's style, and everything was going great until an hour ago, when I attempted to edit the sidebar.php file in the theme editor - when I clicked the "Update File" button, the sidebar.php page went blank. Everything gone. I attempted to re-upload a fresh copy, and the moment I went to edit that file, the same thing happened!
I deleted the entire theme and re-uploaded it from scratch, and it seemed to be working fine. I had changed the sidebar.php file a few times, and then the last time I did, blammo, it dissapeared again.
Next I tried using a totally different template, and the same thing happened. Now I am terrified of spending any time working on a sidebar lest the thing dissapear on me again. Any suggestions?
my site is http://www.doomsdaylaser.com and I have been using the Preview Theme plugin to edit new themes...oh, and I have wordpress 1.5
