I am hoping this is just a WP version issue. I am working on a new theme. In the past, to widgetize a sidebar, you would add something like this right before the opening
<?php if ( !function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') || !dynamic_sidebar() ) : ?>
And you'd add this right after the closing
<?php endif; ?>
I notice now, however, that WP throws out errors when it encounters that last
<?php endif; ?>. When you remove it, things settle down. Except for one thing:
As you can see from the testbed, it throws EVERYTHING into the sidebar, the original contents AND the widgets.
I know this is because of that missing line of code at the end, but what is the fix? I've Googled and searched these forums. Any thoughts/ I wanted to widgetize this theme before releasing it, but personally, I don't care for them so.. anyway, if anyone has any ideas, I'm all ears.
