Side Bar coding help

  1. Im currently using Midsight Theme (#91) <url>http://www.writerspace.net/index.php/2007/03/20/100-favourite-wordpress-themes/</url&gt;

    This is my blog <url>http://vanice.zzl.org</url&gt;
    I'm totally new to wordpress and don't know much about the codings.
    I'm having a little bit trouble with the side bar.

    This theme does not have a wigetized side bar and I tried to add the blogroll and meta manually on the style.css and sidebar.php by mimicing the Categories code.

    Style.css
    .blogroll li {
    list-style: none;
    border-bottom: 1px dotted #CCCCCC;
    padding: 5px 0px 5px 25px;
    background: url(images/link-icon.gif) no-repeat 4px 6px;
    }

    .blogroll ul li {
    background: url(images/link-icon.gif) no-repeat 0px 9px;
    padding: 5px 0 0px 12px;
    font-size: 1em !important;
    }

    .meta li {
    list-style: none;
    border-bottom: 1px dotted #CCCCCC;
    padding: 5px 0px 5px 25px;
    background: url(images/reg-icon.gif) no-repeat 4px 6px;
    }

    .meta ul li {
    background: url(images/reg-icon.gif) no-repeat 0px 9px;
    border-bottom: 0px dotted #CCCCCC;
    padding: 5px 0 0px 12px;
    font-size: 1em !important;
    }

    Sidebar.php
    {h1}Blogroll{/h1}
    {ul class="Blogroll"}
    {?php get_links(-1, '{li}', '{/li}', ' - '); ?}
    {/ul}
    {/li}

    {h1}Meta{/h1}
    {ul class="Meta"}
    {?php wp_register(); ?}
    {li}{?php wp_loginout(); ?}{/li}
    {?php wp_meta(); ?}
    {li}{ahref="http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=referer"}XHTML{/a}{/li}
    {/ul}{/li}

    *Replaced < and > with { and }

    The image "link-icon.gif" and "reg-icon.gif" wont show like they are in Categories / Archive. Pls refer to my blog. Did I miss out anything or made a mistake by any chance?? I need some help, any kind soul out there can help me? Thanks in advance.

  2. Since you are self-hosted and using the software downloaded from wordpress.org, you need to direct your question to http://wordpress.org/support/ . WordPress.com uses a multi-user version of the software which is different and few, if any, here know anything about it.

  3. You're in the wrong spot. You need to be at wordpress.org/support
