I have a theme created from scratch.I am able to create custom sidebar area and add widgets to it.
But when i give this in index.php
<?php get_sidebar(); ?>
it shows some widgets rendered in that side bar (front end). but in the backend the there is no widget area like that nor the widgets assigned. I think it's rendering some default widgets
How can i enable that sidebar? what am i missing?
what doesget_sidebar() outputs without any custom side bar it passed to it? where are widgets are added to that side bar area.it is not showing
