Im really stuck in trying to get some basic static content into the sidebar. It will never change so being able to edit it is not important, I have added some html directly to the sidebar.ss and did a flush but I cant get it to show. I cant belive its this difficult to get a few extra lines to apear in the side bar.

Can anyone help me please

###########content of sidebar.ss################

<div id="Sidebar" class="typography">
	<div class="sidebarBox">
 		<h3>
			Test heading
  		</h3>
  		test body
  		
		<div class="clear"></div>
	
	
	
 		<h3>
			<% control Level(1) %>
				$Title
			<% end_control %>
  		</h3>
  		
  		<ul id="Menu2">
		  	<% control Menu(2) %>
  	    		<% if Children %>
			  	    <li class="$LinkingMode"><a href="$Link" title="Go to the $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode levela"><span><em>$MenuTitle.XML</em></span></a>
	  	    	<% else %>
		  			<li><a href="$Link" title="Go to the $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode levela"><span><em>$MenuTitle.XML</em></span></a>
				<% end_if %>	  
	  		
	  			<% if LinkOrSection = section %>
	  				<% if Children %>
						<ul class="sub">
							<li>
								<ul class="roundWhite">
									<% control Children %>
										<li><a href="$Link" title="Go to the $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode levelb"><span><em>$MenuTitle.XML</em></span></a></li>
									<% end_control %>
								</ul>
							</li>
						</ul>
			 		 <% end_if %>
				<% end_if %> 
			</li> 
  			<% end_control %>
  		</ul>
		<div class="clear"></div>
	</div>
	<div class="sidebarBottom"></div>
</div>

Is your main template even including this file?

The default theme has a <% if Menu(2) %> round it so it will only include the sidebar if there is a menu 2. If your theme has copied the default theme then you will need to remove the <% if Menu(2) %>s that are through out the page.ss template file.

I got it to work by modifying the page.ss which then made it rebuild the cache. Strange thing is, is that I thought by doing the flush all command I would clear the cache.

Nevermind its in place now and alls well in the world!
