This is where you went wrong. You should never edit any files other than the ones in your current theme's directory. In your case, that is here:


Also, I still see an extra "<div>" tag where the avantlink code appeared. This extra code is still causing problems.

Try this:

1. Completely revert your index.php file back to the original version. If you don't have the original anymore, just download it again from WP.

2. Add a Text Widget to your sidebar here:

3. Then take the Avantlink code and paste it into that Text Widget.

That's all you have to do.
