Sorry if this is obvious, but I could not figure out how to add a sidebar to my site. I am ussing super classic theme. I went to widgets and added "Blog Archive" to the sidebar but it didnt show up. Also, sidebar is under "Zones for other enabled themes.", but i tried changing to several other themes and still couldnt get it.

Hey Bigjoe714,

I can't tell you how exactly this works but have you tried using the TheThemeMachine theme? It has a lot of different sidebars and other nice stuff.

Thanks dadaemon. I will look at the ThemeMachine.

I can see that Super Classic has a sidebar in it's screenshot, so i thought it would be simple to "turn on"
