I am using current theme and WP. My URL is www.coleandlindsey.com
I have my page set to a static page with one called “News” as the posts page. When I made this page I set it’s template to a full width page (No side bar). When I changed it to the posts page, the side bar came back. I removed all the widgets from that side bar in the widgets menu, and now the Archive, search and meta still appear. If I add something back like archives, only that widget appears.
I also noticed that the color of the font changed back to default, after I’d done some changes to make it a mint color as opposed to the default purple. Not sure if that makes a difference or can give an idea where it might be.
