[Resolved] [Theme: Twenty Eleven] Phantom widget in sidebar

  • I have a phantom sidebar widget showing up that I can’t seem to get rid of. I had created a temporary text widget with this content, then deleted it, but it now appears on every page. CSS seems to point to “secondary widget area,” but in widgets admin, there are only Main Sidebar, Showcase Sidebar, and Footer Widget areas available.

    I’ve tried repairing the database and turning off plugins to no avail. Haven’t customized CSS yet, it’s native Twenty Eleven.

    The phantom widget text in sidebar says “Portrait.” Site is at http://sirius.johnsoncreative.com/lam

    Ideas? Thanks!

  • Look at sidebar.php.

    Check if it’s hard-coded.

    Not that I can see…

    Here’s sidebar.php and content-aside.php:

    <?php
    /**
     * The Sidebar containing the main widget area.
     *
     * @package WordPress
     * @subpackage Twenty_Eleven
     * @since Twenty Eleven 1.0
     */
    
    $options = twentyeleven_get_theme_options();
    $current_layout = $options['theme_layout'];
    
    if ( 'content' != $current_layout ) :
    ?>
    		<div id="secondary" class="widget-area" role="complementary">
    			<?php if ( ! dynamic_sidebar( 'sidebar-1' ) ) : ?>
    
    				<aside id="archives" class="widget">
    					<h3 class="widget-title"><?php _e( 'Archives', 'twentyeleven' ); ?></h3>
    					<ul>
    						<?php wp_get_archives( array( 'type' => 'monthly' ) ); ?>
    					</ul>
    				</aside>
    
    				<aside id="meta" class="widget">
    					<h3 class="widget-title"><?php _e( 'Meta', 'twentyeleven' ); ?></h3>
    					<ul>
    						<?php wp_register(); ?>
    						<li><?php wp_loginout(); ?></li>
    						<?php wp_meta(); ?>
    					</ul>
    				</aside>
    
    			<?php endif; // end sidebar widget area ?>
    		</div><!-- #secondary .widget-area -->
    <?php endif; ?>
    <?php
    /**
     * The template for displaying posts in the Aside Post Format on index and archive pages
     *
     * Learn more: http://codex.wordpress.org/Post_Formats
     *

    ?>

    			<?php endif; ?>
    			<?php edit_post_link( __( 'Edit', 'twentyeleven' ), '<span class="edit-link">', '</span>' ); ?>
    		</footer><!-- #entry-meta -->
    	</article><!-- #post-<?php the_ID(); ?> -->

    Any other thoughts? I’ve even searched the DB tables for “portrait”

    Well, dragging all of the sidebar widgets to inactive and moving them back again solved the problem. Still don’t know why, however.
