Hi Joseph,

Odds are that it's a widget ready sidebar so when you add a widget via the
Admin all of the existing content will disappear.  It's supposed to do that.

I'll have to take a look at the theme.

BTW do you have an url to share?

Thanks for answering. 

As it happens I have just hit a problem ;-). I'm developing on my laptop and
using Atahualpa, which is close to my previous design.

I am mystified by the right sidebar. The contents seem set, which I'll get
over! Strange that if one tries to add a widget the set content disappears.

But my problem is with links categories. I have set category sizes much
smaller than default [1.3em normal] which is fine for 'blogroll' and for al
l the esisting headings. However, I have added two links categories - and
plan to remove 'blogroll'. The added categories have come up in the default
[1.6em bold].

Any thoughts on what they might be picking up so I can change it? In this
theme the setting is under sidebars&widgets>style widgets>widget title. But
I think with 'blogroll' there they may be appearing as list items. But there
is no size adjustment on the form.
