I cant get the right sidebar to show up on pages.  I have added a widge to the side bar, but the sidebart doesnt show up.  I have the bar setup to be on the right.  If I choose left it works, but not right for some reason.

Could it be because of the slideshow?

Are you using the default Page template or one of the custom ones?

Ok, I’ve looked at the source and it looks like your ad widget is not configured properly. The image sources are showing:

http://realtybyterri.com/wp-content/uploads/http://realtybyterri.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/kw_logo.png

when it should be:

http://realtybyterri.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/kw_logo.png

I think what you’re doing is putting the full path to the image in the field instead of just “2011/09/kw_logo.png”.

Image paths are relative to: /wp-content/uploads/

Thanks Casey, I used Firebug and I found the problem but I am not sure how to fix it without breaking other pages.

The sidebar is being built and displayed underneath the slideshow.  Using firebug, I changed the padding-top os .sidebar.right to 325px and it is the correct location.  If I change the css then it would be in a strange location on pages without the slideshow.

Maybe some DIV rearranging is in order?

Actually, the slider does not go above the left/right widget areas at full width. The content templates are intended for wide pages. I think what you need here is a widget position above the content if you want to pull this off. You might first check to see that the slider will render as a shortcode in a text widget.
