Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

New Widget area not showing up

WordPress 3.01 and ATA 3.5.3

I've avoided this like the plague because i seem to have a mental block on adding new widgets. I've been reading thru this thread
and it all made sense. I add the new widgets area above the loop in the center column and added the following as the first line:

<?php bfa_widget_area('name=Group Menus'); ?>

No matter how many time I refresh it just isn't showing up. Even cleared my cache. I've added before just to see it I could get it added and then it worked. Of course when I need it , it doesn't.

Even tried another in the footer just in case. Nothing.

Any ideas?

After you create the area what widget are you putting in it. Nothing will show up until you put a widget in the widget area.

I can't put anything in the widget area because it isn't showing up in the widgets at all. Can't even try to put something there.

I'm looking in Appearance>Widgets

Make sure if you put it in a new area that you change the name. Also you must go view the page that it will show on before it will show in the widgets

You said it worked in the past. Was that on the same host?

Yes it was the exact same host. This is what I've done.

I've put in <?php bfa_widget_area('name=Group Menus'); ?> above the loop in the Content Above the Loop.

Then I have refresh several times. The code is still there but I show no widget on the....OMG!

I have been out there several times refreshing during the last several hours. I re-booted, cleared my cache etc. I checked within the past hour even. It just now showed up! Why would it take so long? is it something I've done or didn't do) or maybe my hosting? it literally took several hours to show.

That being said I now get to take the next step which is where I have had the mental block in the past. So here goes. Hopefully you won't hear from me again but you never know!

Thanks. (Not sure why I can work on something for hours but then right after I post I figure it out or it resolves itself. I'm starting to get a complex)

Again, thanks
