[SOLVED] Unable to Re-Create New Widget Area after deleting it

Hi,

My website is www.acvideo.org
I'm using WordPress 3.0.1 and ATA v3.5.3

I spent several hours trying to add a New Widget Area to be placed on the right half of the Logo Bar area after removing the Search Box, the Posts and Comment Feed by doing the following:

ATA » Style & Edit HEADER AREA » Configure Header Area and added the following code:

%logo <?php bfa_widget_area('name=Logo_Widget_Area&cells=1&ali gn=1&before_widget=<div id="%1$s" class="logo-widget %2$s">&after_widget=</div>'); ?> %bar1 %image %bar2 %pages

So the New Widget Area was created but I couldn’t get the Text widget to place itself on the right half of the Logo Bar area. It kept going below the Logo.

After many experiments I ended up creating several new unwanted widget areas (Apearance » Widgets). I then decided to delete these (Add New Widget Areas » Delete custom Widget Areas and Deleted the checked Widget Areas) and try to start all over, but now I’m NOT able to re-create a New Widget Area even though I'm using the same procedure as above.

Your help would be greatly appreciated

Have you deleted the code for the widget areas you created? What kind of widget area or areas do you want to create? Are there still widget areas showing in the Add New Widget Areas section?

Yes I deleted the code: <?php bfa_widget_area('name=Logo_Widget_Area&cells=1&ali gn=1&before_widget=<div id="%1$s" class="logo-widget %2$s">&after_widget=</div>'); ?>

from ATA » Style & Edit HEADER AREA » Configure Header Area, leaving it like:

%logo %bar1 %image %bar2 %pages

Yes all the other widgets are there. I only deleted the 3 that I had created and had named logo_widget-area

Have you tried using a different name for the widget area. Also if you want items side by side you should probably create a 2 celled widget area as items in the Style & edit Header area box are one over the other as you found out.

OK now for some reason the new widget called logo_widget-area is now appearing in the widget area, but when I open it there no place to add a title or any code.

So what do you sugest I do so that I have the Logo, the Title and the Tag Line just the way it is and then add a widget area on the right side.

I have not yet decided what to put in the widget area, maybe an image or a banner

First of all a widget area is for putting a widget in. It will have not title in and of itself. For instance if you want some text in the widget area you will put a text widget in it. If you want to put an image in it you could add an image widget or a slideshow widget just like you put in the right or left sidebars which are also widget areas. They are just built into the theme.

You also can't just put a widget area on the right of something. You can sometimes use CSS to position the widget you put in it or you can create a two celled widget area where you can have two or more widgets side by side.
