    I’m sorry if I’m having really dumb moment, but I truly cannot find my Sidebar, or how to activate it.
    I see it in the Widgets section, and there are widgets installed onto it, but I don’t see the Sidebar on my site?
    Please help.

    It’s possible that inside Customize they have a disable or enable button

    @philennaidu I’ve archived your new topic where you title it that you don’t know where to get support for this theme. While providing a link to this theme’s sub-forum.

    Please keep support for themes or plugins in the right sub-forum. You are getting helped.

    It looks like a widget area for the sidebar was defined, but the theme developer didn’t add a sidebar to any of the page templates. If you go to Appearance → Customize → Widgets, you’ll see widget areas for Footer 1, Footer 2, Footer 3, and Ribbon Area. However, you’ll also see this note at the top:

    Your theme has 2 other widget areas, but this particular page doesn’t display them.

    You can navigate to other pages on your site while using the Customizer to view and edit the widgets displayed on those pages.

    So even though they have defined a widget area for Sidebar, they never added the code to any of their page templates (I tried looking at a single post page, a regular page, and a blog page in the Customizer, and got the same warning). Also, if you go to the theme’s home page, you’ll see that one of the tags is One column, so it looks like they never intended to implement a sidebar.

    Note that the developers also defined a widget area called Events section, which is the second area that doesn’t seem to be implemented on any of the page templates.

    @jdembowski I appreciate it, thank you.
    To be honest, it is only after I posted the request for help that you mention; only then did I begin receiving responses. You can check the times of posts and responses.
    But thank you. Truly. Whatever you did has worked, and now I am receiving support. And I am grateful.

    @crouchingbruin am I correct in hearing that I should forget about the Sidebar in this theme?

    I would say that is correct. The Belise demo blog page on their site (Theme Isle) doesn’t have a sidebar. And it looks like they provide support through their Theme Isle site and not on the WordPress site, so you may have better luck going there (under the Quick Fix box, they say, “The PRO version can get quick fixes. Support and theme updates might come with a few days delay for the free themes.”

    @crouchingbruin thank you so much. I appreciate you.
