    If you could start me in right direction I'd appreciate it so much. I lost my side bar and welcome text and box is in middle of screen.

    The blog I need help with is humancucumber.wordpress.com.

  2. We'd need a link to the site you are talking about so that we could look at the source code to figure out what is going on. The screen cap really doesn't do much good for this sort of thing.

  3. Also, that doesn't appear to be a wordpress.com hosted site.

  4. This is sidebar...
    <div id="sidebar">

    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>

    <!--?php }?--><ins datetime="2012-04-16T22:59:24+00:00"></ins>

    <?php if(!function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') || !dynamic_sidebar('Sidebar')) : ?>

    <div class="widget_area_side"><p>You can add widgets here from Widgets Page</p></div><!--end widget_area_side -->

    <?php endif; ?>

    </div><!--end sidebar-->

  5. This is from stylesheet..

    Thanks for your help so much!

  6. I'm going to take a wild, a**ed guess, since you did not provide a link to the site as I asked, that you are in the wrong forum based on the fact that you quoted PHP script, and we don't have access to that here at wordpress.COM.

    Go to http://wordpress.ORG/support/ as that is where self-hosted wordpress sites are supported. We can't help you here.

  7. @humancucumber
    Let's be clear please. The blog linked to your username is a free hosted WordPress.com blog that's devoid on any blogger created content. We cannot access the php underlying our blogs at WordPress.com and we cannot edit templates or themes. http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/editing-themes/

    We provide support on this forum only to those with free hosted WordPress.com blogs. And if you want CSS editing help then you have to have a WordPress.com blog that you have purchased a custom design upgrade for to get that support.

    I believe you are posting to the wrong support forum. I believe you are posting about a WordPress.org install and we do not provide support for them. That support is here > http://wordpress.org/support/

    Please read WordPress.com vs WordPress.org: The Differences.

  8. @thesacredpath
    Well, that makes two wild guesses.
