Deafult sidebar change to widgeted sidebar

    I have a site up at that is using a modified Starfish Theme and it is set up to use widgets. I placed the widgets in and the sidebar is still showing the default and not the widgets. I am fairly good with php but this one is kicking my bum! The sidebar code is as follows:

    ‘<div class=”sidebar”>

      <?php if ( function_exists(‘dynamic_sidebar ‘) && dynamic_sidebar(‘sidebar’) ) : else : ?>
      <?php wp_list_categories(‘orderby=name&show_count=0&title_li=<h2>Categories</h2>’); ?>

    • <h2>Pages</h2>

        <?php wp_list_pages(‘title_li=’); ?>
    • <h2>Meta</h2>

    • <h2>Blogroll</h2>

        <?php get_links(-1, ‘

      • ‘, ‘
      • ‘, ‘between’, FALSE, ‘name’, FALSE, FALSE, -1, FALSE); ?>

    • <?php endif; ?>
      <?php include(TEMPLATEPATH . “/sidebarad.php”); ?>


    As far as I can see it is set up correctly. I have searched through the support forums and found similar issues with the Tiga code but it isn’t helping here. The only thing I have modified are the page links at the top.

    So any help here would be appreciated.

    That blog appears to be self-hosted. If so, you’ll need to get help at

    We use very different software here at and are unable to help with this sort of problem.
