The sidebar - Problems using it with a customized theme (2 posts)

    Hello all,

    Currently I have WP installed in my directory and have my blog address redirected to my original site:


    I have my own sidebar menu on the right side, which is a small html .php file inside my own includes folder of my directory. If I copy and paste certain functions from wp's default theme 'sidebar.php' and paste into my sidebar menu it will show up on my homepage, but when you go to any other pages within in my site my sidebar menu gets cut off and the functions do not show and neither the rest of my content that follows the functions. Currently I do not have this set up to view, but would like to know why this could be happening. If anyone has any suggestions, or knows the cause please reply to this post. Thanks.

    Might have some conditional test, in index.php for example, that allows the sidebar to only display on the index page.

    See Template Hierarchy, Theme Developement, and Conditional Tags for more info.
