The main page of my blog (http://www.blue-point-trading.com/blog) only allows the secondary sidebar to show instead of the main sidebar...No welcoming text, only the secondary sidebar.. I tried restoring the settings, crating a new blog page, nothing worked so far Please help Best regards Snobtrader

did you manually change anything in sidebar.php?

Actually the main posts page should be the only page where you can't see the secondary sidebar (WP handles the posts page differently than the rest)

have you set any custom fields? (like one for the secondary sidebar..)

Hey arpowers, No, I have not changed anything manually in sidebar.php. I do use a secondary sidebar (for the blog posts) and a main sidebar for the blog itself. No, no custom fields for the Blog Page set... Quite a big problem actually I really tried everything I could and the main sidebar seems to appear on every other page except the Blog :-( Please help...

In addition to that, it says if I remove all widgets from the secondary sidebar: The secondary sidebar has been selected but doesn't have any widgets. Add some widgets to your secondary sidebar in your admin.

For now, I moved all widgets to the secondary sidebar, but it is still not showing the welcoming text :-(

its probably being set that way because you're using it on the posts... How do you set the "secondary sidebar" on the posts? by selecting the custom field on each one?
