I add widgets to all my pages, but for a weird reason the only show up when i have a subpage...

Below is the code, hope someone notices the mistake or has a solution.

<div id="Sidebar" class="typography">
<div class="dbx-group" style="position: relative; display: block;">
<div class="sidebarBox dbx-box">
<h3 class="dbx-handle">
<% control Level(1) %>
$Title
<% end_control %>
</h3>
<div class="dbx-content">
<ul id="Menu2">
<% control Menu(2) %>
<% if Children %>
<li class="$LinkingMode"><a href="$Link" title="Go to the $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode levela"><span><em>$MenuTitle</em></span></a>
<% else %>
<li><a href="$Link" title="Go to the $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode levela"><span><em>$MenuTitle</em></span></a>
<% end_if %>

<% if LinkOrSection = section %>
<% if Children %>
<ul class="sub">
<li>
<ul>
<span class="roundWhite">
<% control Children %>
<li><a href="$Link" title="Go to the $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode levelb"><span><em>$MenuTitle</em></span></a></li>
<% end_control %>
</span>
</ul>
</li>
</ul>
<% end_if %>
<% end_if %>

</li>
<% end_control %>
</ul>

</div>

</div>
<!-- <div class="clear"></div> -->
$Sidebar
</div>

</div>

Its because that whole Sidebar.ss file isnt loaded unless their is a menu. Look in themes/blackcandy/templates/Layout/Page.ss for the <% if Menu(2) %> check. You need to remove that

Oke that worked :)

Now it shows a box (itheme theme) with the website title in it :(
I tried to take out the <h3> .... </h3> bit, but then it just doesn't show the title but still a part of the surround box.

Any tips?

<div id="Sidebar" class="typography">
<div class="dbx-group" style="position: relative; display: block;">
<div class="sidebarBox dbx-box">
<h3 class="dbx-handle">
<% control Level(1) %>
$Title
<% end_control %>
</h3>
<div class="dbx-content">
<ul id="Menu2">
<% control Menu(2) %>
<% if Children %>
<li class="$LinkingMode"><a href="$Link" title="Go to the $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode levela"><span><em>$MenuTitle</em></span></a>
<% else %>
<li><a href="$Link" title="Go to the $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode levela"><span><em>$MenuTitle</em></span></a>
<% end_if %>

<% if LinkOrSection = section %>
<% if Children %>
<ul class="sub">
<li>
<ul>
<span class="roundWhite">
<% control Children %>
<li><a href="$Link" title="Go to the $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode levelb"><span><em>$MenuTitle</em></span></a></li>
<% end_control %>
</span>
</ul>
</li>
</ul>
<% end_if %>
<% end_if %>

</li>
<% end_control %>
</ul>

</div>

</div>
<!-- <div class="clear"></div> -->

$Sidebar
