I did all this work – well, actually, the mysterious admin did a LOT of work and figured out the problem. I just changed the theme and tried to bring back the sidebars. But now the sidebars are broken again and I don’t understand why. So I’m going to walk in the rain with Bro and play the dulcimer a little while he dries off and read more Daniel Quinn while I fall asleep, and maybe in the morning it will work. Distance Reiki for WordPress, anyone?
