    I changed my side bar php page, and added in Adsence and put in XXXXXXXX to check it would appear in the correct place. I then removed the XXXXXXXX from the file, but it is still there is the side bar?

    Can somebody please help me get rid of the XXXXXXXX?

    Paste your sidebar code here if it's short, or use pastebin and give me the link so that I can take a look.

    It's still in the sidebar as I can see the XXXXXXX

    This is the sidebar2.php of the atahualpa theme.

    I have taken out where I put the crosses and Adsence code, but it is still on the site. Also tried to reinstall the theme, but this does not work. So think it may have been copied onto another page or something (very new this wp but trying very hard!).

    thanks

    TaG. It says <?php /* #####, that's not a complete tag. Now I'm not much of a coder, but my guess is that it should say <?php } ?> or at least call a function and be closed with a >.

    I tried changed to the following but it did not make any difference. I also down loaded the template against and reinstalled it, but this did not make any difference. Also noticed that any changes made in this template do not appear on the site. Any ideas?

    thanks

    Looking at it again, it seems that your theme developer accidentally made the "widgetized RIGHT..." etc remark put between PHP tags. What happens if you delete the opening <?php /*, leave the ###'s and the text and delete the closing */?>? I don't think the ###'s and text should be between PHP tags.

    As regards your theme not changing. I usualy have to switch to default and back to the custom theme before changes appear. I'm not sure why, but I guess the theme needs to be 'reloaded' or something.
