I have just started a nice website for our non-profit using WP. I've gotten a lot of it nailed down. But widgets in the sidebar is throwing me off. Example: The stock theme I'm using Batavia 126.96.36.199 supplies me with a pretty complete sidebar. But I wanted to add a simple Counter. So I downloaded, installed and activated the Simple Counter plug-in. Went to Widgets and "Add"ed it over on the right hand side. It's the only one listed there. Went back to check it out and Counter is there but all the other Sidebar content is gone!
So am I to surmise that when you add content/widgets to the sidebar you have to sacrifice all widgets/links/content that was there before? That can't be, can it???
