  • In this post:

    the problem of dynamic sidebars not showing was answered with the advice:
    Try looking in functions.php for register_sidebar().

    There was no further comments in that thread. I have the same problem, I checked in functions.php, as well as widgets.php, and my theme’s functions.php, and the only thing that shows up (global functions.php) is
    function register_sidebars($number = 1, $args = array())

    followed by the arguments.

    How do I know if I need the singular register_sidebar() defined, and how would I enter it into the funtions.php? In other words, how can I get those marvelous widgets that partially sold me on the theme to actually show up?

  • PS. The theme is compatible with the WP version I’m using, AND the sidebars show up on some of the pages. There is a sidebar “Bottom Middle” for instance in admin, I’ve configured it, it’s called by

    <?php if ( !function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') || !dynamic_sidebar('Bottom-Middle') ) : ?>

    and no show… is there a way to check if it’s named properly? Because that’s how it’s being called. Or do I need to go register the singular
    register_sidebar(Bottom-Middle); somewhere?

    sorry for this messy post.
    I just found this in the theme functions.php:

            'name' => 'Bottom-Middle',
            'before_widget' => '<div class="item">',
            'after_widget' => '</div>',
            'before_title' => '<h3 class="sub">',
            'after_title' => '</h3>',

    so, there it is registered, and not showing up…. any input would be welcome… if you can wade through this post.
