    Hi there!

    I am trying to figure out many of your theme’s options, so, first of all, thank you for creating such rich and beautiful product!

    I ran into a bit of a problem, following the instructions in one of your tutorials about adding sidebars, unique to each page. Theme Options, Sidebars: in the screenshots, there is Add Sidebar button next to Add Dynamic Sidebar area. There is no such button that I see, therefore, after pressing Enter, and/or Save Changes, my previously created sidebars disappear. What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks for suggestions in advance!

    Best wishes,
    Daredash

    For some reason the AdBlock plugin returns a false positive for that button.

    I have exactly the same issue. I don’t have AdBlock installed and have tried Chrome and Internet Explorer, both gave the same results.

    Any tips?

    You probably have some other ad or script blocker, there’s nothing else in the theme or WP that would hide that specific button.

    Thanks for your quick answer!

    That can’t be it, the issue repeat itself on different browsers/computers. I have tried Chrome and IE on my Win7 computer and Safari on my Mac.

    The issue is that I can clic and create a dynamic sidebar, but after I add another the first one dissapears. So I remain with only the last created dynamic sidebar, not the whole list as you explained in your walktrough to create the example theme.

    So I ask myself, what does prevent the sidebars from being created? I changed already the rights to the theme folder, can there be an issue with the database?

    Help needed,

    It has nothing to do with folder permissions. Try to delete all sidebars and start from scratch.

    I just did a complete new wordpress install and still the same results.

    It goes like this:
    1. Add dynamic sidebar – “Home Full Screen” – “1 column” [Add Sidebar]
    2. The browser indicates “Theme settings updated successfully” and Edit Dynamic Sidebars shows the just added “Home Full Screen” sidebar.
    3. Add dynamic sidebar – “Home Header” – “1 column” [Add Sidebar]
    4. The browser indicates “Theme settings updated successfully” and Edit Dynamic Sidebars shows ONLY the just added “Home Header” sidebar.
    etc.

    Is there a way of debugging?

    Help appreciated.

    Try updating to Enlightenment v1.1.0 and see if the issue still persists.

    Thank you for the suggestion! I’ve done the update! I’ve noticed you’ve improved the interface to add a dynamic sidebar.

    Unfortunately the result is the same. After adding the second and third, the list of newly created and editable sidebars remains only the lastone created. not the whole list.

    :-S

    So the issue occurs only when adding the third sidebar?

    Already when adding the second sidebar. I think actually that no sidbar is really made/added. Is there any other way of checking which sidebar were actually created, other than the sidebar menu?

    You can check if it shows up in Appearance → Widgets. This is a bit strange since this was a bug that was fixed a long time ago and I don’t remember anybody complaining about it ever since. Please try the following: Open one of the theme’s files and add the following line:

    <pre><?php var_dump( get_option( 'enlightenment_theme_options' ) ); ?></pre>

    Then print the output of the function here. (Check before if by any chance any personal or other sensitive information has been been printed).
