Sleek Photo sidebar not showing up


I am updating my portfolio site with Sleek Photo. I want to add a contact form in the right sidebar. I've installed the plug in, but when I go to the Widgets page to drag it into the sidebar, there is no sidebar for me to drag it into. I do see the footer widgets.

I've used the Theme > Customize page to set a left content column.

I feel like I'm missing something really obvious, but I simply can't figure out how to make the sidebar show up either in the admin ui or on the site.

Any help will be much appreciated! Thanks in advance.

    Hi there and welcome to the WPMU DEV Community for WordPress Support!

    You've got it all correct and missing just about nothing! The only thing is that this theme doesn't have sidebars. A lot of themes do, but since this one is meant to display your artistry, the author must have figured that it'd be better to put anything that may detract from the beauty in the footer area.

    Huh. Wacky! It's a tad misleading that the theme customize page offers content-left/content-right/no sidebar at all options, but I can see from what you highlighted that indeed, there is no sidebar mentioned in the documentation.

    Thanks for such a prompt response!
