Custom Sidebar - Slightly Buggy WordPress


Hi Experts,

I'm using a custom theme that has a few custom registered sidebars.

There is a slight issue with 2 of the 'sidebars' down in the footer. For whatever reason, the sidebar on the right side will not display unless there is content in the sidebar on the left side. More specifically, looking at the code in the link below, "Footer Navigation - Right Side" will not show up unless there is a widget in "Footer Copyright - Left Side".

<strong>[[LINK href=""]]Link to code >[[/LINK]]</strong>

I've tried debugging and I've noticed that if I delete the entire top half of the code, from lines 1-33, the 2 sidebars work just as they should. This tells me it is something in the first 33 lines of code causing the conflict.

Please let me know if you require any further information.

Thank you very much for your help.

If you add a empty text widget to "Footer Copyright - Left Side" would that be a workaround? Maybe add &nbsp; into the text widget text field.
