I have tried several things to get my left sidebar not to show a listing of the pages. I do want it to show the archives, email, search recent posts and comments. I removed the check mark from Page (pages) and the category pages and it did not work. I then tried removing the check mark from Home page and that makes the side bar disappear altogether. I also tried removing the check mark from just the Home page. I currently have my blog's front page set up to show posts not the Home page.
I used WP version 2.7.1 and Atahualpa 3.3.3
Thanks anyone for your help.
Flynn if you read this, maybe you should ask that people donate per question or per month for the forum separately from the donation for the theme. There are some car repair guys on the web that do that. The higher your donation the faster and more complete your answer is. Since you seem to spend a good amount of time on the forum, this seems only fair. Freebies are great and we all appreciate them, but every body needs to pay for shelter and food, etc.
