    I installed a wordpress blog, but I don't have any sidebars to put my widgets in - here's what it looks like:

    How do I put those sidebars in there?

    Please help!

    Change your theme. Some theme's have one side bar, some have two. Apparently, some have none... If this isnt the problem, post a link to your blog and I'll take a look at it.

    Thats really wierd bro. I'd try exporting the blog, reinstalling wordpress, then importing it back so you still have all your posts and stuff. not really sure what else to try.
    maybe someone else will offer better advice.

    just copied 2 sidebar.php from 2 different themes that have sidebars - no luck.

    (the same theme I installed on different blogs don't have sidebar.php - but DO have them in the actual admin panel, this one and a few other blogs don't.) so weird

    ok........ I finally got to the bottom of this:

    I just disabled some plugins that were installed - on my another blog that didn't have any sidebars showing up - and now 2 sidebars are showing. All it took was disabling those plugins.

    woah.
