    I just purchased Genesis earlier today, as well as the Cobalt Dynamik for Genesis.

    I was using Catalyst/Dynamik, so I have a good idea of how the child theme Dynamik works.

    So I configure all of my Genesis settings … not too difficult.

    But when I go to Appearances >> Widgets, there are no sidebars where I can drag my widgets to. Is this something I’m doing incorrectly with Genesis, or would I have to go to the Cobalt Dynamik people for this?

    Here is a screen capture of what I’m seeing in my widget area.

    Thanks!

    Hi Jason, It sounds like maybe a plugin of something you have installed in your dashboard is stopping your widgets area from showing up. Try disabling your plugins or at least the last ones you installed before this started happening.

    Yes, I have Cobalt Dynamik installed … oddly, a couple of my widgets (menu, pinterest marklet, etc.) are showing, but most of them aren’t — and none are visible within the admin area, so I cannot re-add the widgets to the widget areas.

    So I’m deactivating them right now, then will reactivate one by one. I might add that I did upgrade to WordPress 3.7 and things were working fine … and that’s when I purchased and installed Genesis and Cobalt Dynamik.

    Yep — I just deactivated my plugins, and now the widget areas are showing … so surely there was a plugin conflict. Now comes the painfully slow process of reactivating one by one … hehe

    Perfect … now it finally looks like the WP Admin interface I’m used to. I had a couple stale plugins that I had no use for, so I’m sure one of them was the culprit.

    Thanks for taking the time to respond, Bruce, because as unintelligent as I am, I’d have never thought that a plugin conflict was causing that!

    Now comes the painfully slow process of reactivating one by one … hehe

    I actually activate them in groups – if nothing breaks it when I activate a group, then I can move on; if it breaks, then I’ve isolated it to 3 or 4 of them. It’s a much faster process than one by one :)

    (FYI – I only have 3 plugins on my own site, but when I’m working on other’s sites, I can sometimes be working with 20+ plugins)

    Rob, I apologize for mistakenly calling you Bruce; it happens when you’re a WordPress geek with no life who’s been up for 36 straight hours figuring these things out … hehe … but Rob, your e-mail was bounced back … gosss68@gmail.com didn’t work. Was that a typo?

    Susan, for sake of veracity, that’s actually what I did …. I have 49 plugins, and I installed them in groups of 10 at a time :)

    By the way, being new to Genesis and the forums, why am I unable to add a profile picture?
