I’ve been fumbling with this for the last several hours this morning, I’m starting to get frustrated with why I can’t register a new sidebar as you have shown here.
I have been watching numerous videos and have read quite a few blog posts in the last 2 hours with little success. While I was able to play around a bit with adding some stuff to specific areas on the page I want to do some more of this dynamic stuff you are talking about.
It seems that when I add any of the
genesis_register_sidebar anything the site bombs out. Here is what I have added to my functions.php file
I’ve been trying to debug this for hours with little success.
For some reason I cant even register the sidebar at all. I can do other simple minded tasks like trying to add in some echo text and point it to above or below content no problem.
Am I missing something on how to register a new sidebar? Is there an added step I’m missing?
Sorry for all the random flusterd posts, I will try to keep those to a minimum
P.S I actually created a live site, (which right now wont work unless I remove the registering of the sidebar in my github code) Which I have done temporarily just so you can see the site.June 19, 2013 at 5:45 am #46710
The link above does not include the entire code i pasted for you to use.
It also does not include all your functions.php file code.
All code i paste on these forums works because i test it. I have tested the code 3 times now on 3 separate themes.

You are 100% correct in that it does work, I downloaded the sample Genesis theme and stuck your code on there and it worked. For some reason it didn’t work in my functions.php file that I created, I’m not really sure why but it didn’t.
Something on the top of my functions file was making it not function properly, not to sure why since as I said PHP has never really been my strong suite. In any case, I never doubted you more or less trying to trouble shoot with some help. I will just use the sample theme and modify this functions.php file instead of creating my own, but this did work nowJune 19, 2013 at 6:55 am #46722
Good idea Josh.
The Genesis 2.0 sample theme supports HTML 5 and i actually use it on my own site. You will need Genesis 2.0 to run this theme unless you use the 1.92 version.
I think you have a problem with the PHP in your old themes functions file.

I was actually running the 1.92 version of the Genesis framework but now I think I have everything figured out. I was about 2 seconds away from even going down this endeavor but thanks for all your help honestly!
one last question what does the ‘5’ do?
add_action( ‘genesis_before_content_sidebar_wrap’, ‘wpsites_home_widget’, 5 );
