    I am new here and new to the parent/child theme (and code stuff!), but I am getting around so far!
    First I would like to say thank you: thematic is wonderful and very much "to the point" (simple and nice).

    I do not have a child installed (so far).

    What I am trying to do:
    I like the sidebar, but because I have many sites, that are all linked somehow, I would like to make a semi-static sidebar. I will only use 1 widget per site (unique, at the top/primary) but the rest of the sidebar will be static (same for all pages/sites) - Or to have a complete static sidebar (i can always "hardcode" the unique widget for each site)

    I also like that the first widget in thematic (in the primary widget part) is enclosed in a square, and would like that for each static sidebar section.

    As I said, I am getting around of codes and stuff. I took a quick look in the forums and under the sidebar.php but there are too many lines of code for me to mess with!

    Any idea/help is very much appreciated.

  2. Have you tried the Widget Context plugin? Or Widget Logic plugin?

    Thanks Ian.
    After lookign at those (which I do not need necessarily), I stumble upon:
    and (which actually has a Context plugin sort of things)

    I wonder if any of those accept a "hardcoded" plugin (ie when a plugin gives you the possibility to input it - when you see {wpxxx} type of stuff) ?
    Or ajax type of stuff ?

    Just another quick question regarding Thematic:
    - is it possible to remove the page link/tab right below the title/header of the site ?
    I would like to do it for one of my site, but can not find it :)

    Thank you Ian.

    Great parent theme you have.
