On one site, I'm using Atahualpa 3.4.2 and WP 2.8.4. PHP 5. Firefox 3.5.3, Mac OS 10.6.
In the footer content area of ATA options, I entered
<?php bfa_widget_area('name=footerarea'); ?>
above the copyright stuff. I saved that. When I go into the Widgets area, I see footerarea1, 2 and 3. To test them, I added text widgets to each one, and they do show up. I guess I don't get how this works. What if I want just one widget in the footer? I did not put 3 cells in the code.
Then I tried the same code above the Loop in the center column.
<?php bfa_widget_area('name=centerwidget'); ?>
This time, I do not see a new widget area called centerwidget in the widgets admin area.
What am I doing wrong?
