I've had minimal experience with WP, but enough that I thought I could build my husband's business website safely. So far, so good, except the sidebars keep disappearing.
I uploaded all of the theme files, I changed the header image, all the text that we wanted to migrate went correctly. Then I took out the "comments" portions of the page template, single post template, and main index template. Everything looked right, and a few hours later the sidebars are gone.
I used the CSS validator (http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/) and everything looks right. So why is the sidebar MIA?
Any help is greatly appreciated - thanks in advance!
