Sidebars MIA! Whac-a-mole!

Recommended Posts

jbstansell

First and foremost, I'm loving Framework. It gives a lot and doesn't ask a lot in return. BUT, it does seem like I'm playing whac-a-mole -- every time I try to get just a little more out of it, I break something. And that leads me to my current problem. I tried to add a "universal header" that would show only on pages using what I named the "basic template." But, when I added that to the basic template section, ALL my sidebars disappeared from by blog page, which is using the "Default Template." I have gone in the template settings and made sure that my primary, secondary, and tertiary sidebars are selected for the Default Template. I have also gone in and removed Widget Logic plugin (which I experimented with) and also removed and replaced all the sidebar widgets. Still, no luck. My sidebars are MIA. Help?!!??!

I haven't figured out the cause, but I have figured out the cure. When I went into my blog and updated a post (as opposed to updating the entire blog page), the sidebars returned. One mole beaten down.

Ya, haven't seen that one, probably something simple but we'd need to see a live site or at least a screenshot to give you some insight. Glad you got the cure at least..

I'm still working the issue but I suspect its as much a problem with my cache (I'm using WP Super Cache) as it is anything else.

I removed WP Super Cache. I've replaced it with Hyper Cache (don't ask me to explain my thinking, I just did). So far, things seem to be working a bit better.

You should not have any cache installed while developing sites, should be the absolute last thing you install.

Pross, thanks for the tip, but my site is a continual work in progress. New pages, new content, etc. I didn't start using cache until I finished the "basic framework."
