Is it just me or are all of the editing tool plugins for WordPress useless? I can build a theme with RSD and create an error free WP website with the instructions I found here in this site.

and

http://www.coffeecup.com/help/articles/exporting-your-responsive-layout-to-wordpress/

See my development site.

However when I install a header and footer and attempt to use the editor plugins I have tried I get errors out the wazoo. My goal is to create a site end users can update on their own that is error free.

This is messed up.

NE1 know of an editing tool that does not produce errors and implements CoffeCup CSS markup?

Greetings,
I am attempting to learn how to build custom themes in WordPress and have reached a point where I think I have a typo however am not sure. My challenge is my index.php file works as I anticipated it would. My attempts to add more content does not. Widgets do not appear in the sidebar as desired however the footer works as anticipated.

Internally in live view I get the message:
There are no widget areas currently rendered in the preview. Navigate in the preview to a template that makes use of a widget area in order to access its widgets here.
Any changes to the sidebar I make through widgets display correctly in index.php. Ionly have one plugin installed it is: Query Monitor I have included what I think may be helpful below.
Here is the code I have in my theme.




Wordpress 4.6.1
functions.php
<?php /*
Theme Name: The Jacksonville Marketplace
Theme URI: #
Description: Jacksonville Marketplace Functions.php
Version: 1.0
Author: JAX Computers
Author URI: http://www.website-design-jacksonville.com/
*/
?>

<?php

/* default sidebar */
add_action( 'widgets_init', 'child_register_sidebar1' );

function child_register_sidebar1(){ register_sidebar(array(
'name' => 'Default Sidebar',
'id' => 'sidebar-1',
'before_widget' => '<div id="%1$s" class="widget %2$s">',
'after_widget' => '</div>',
'before_title' => '<h4 class="widgettitle">',
'after_title' => '</h4>',
));
}

/* fooer one */
add_action( 'widgets_init', 'child_register_sidebar' );

function child_register_sidebar(){ register_sidebar(array(
'name' => 'Footer Widget 1',
'id' => 'sidebar-2',
'before_widget' => '<div id="%1$s" class="widget %2$s">',
'after_widget' => '</div>',
'before_title' => '<h4 class="widgettitle">',
'after_title' => '</h4>',
));
}

/* footer two */
add_action( 'widgets_init', 'child_register_sidebar2' );

function child_register_sidebar2(){ register_sidebar(array(
'name' => 'Footer Widget 2',
'id' => 'sidebar-3',
'before_widget' => '<div id="%1$s" class="widget %2$s">',
'after_widget' => '</div>',
'before_title' => '<h4 class="widgettitle">',
'after_title' => '</h4>',
));
}

/* footer three */
add_action( 'widgets_init', 'child_register_sidebar3' );

function child_register_sidebar3(){ register_sidebar(array(
'name' => 'Footer Widget 3',
'id' => 'sidebar-4',
'before_widget' => '<div id="%1$s" class="widget %2$s">',
'after_widget' => '</div>',
'before_title' => '<h4 class="widgettitle">',
'after_title' => '</h4>',
));
}

add_theme_support( 'nav-menus' );

add_action( 'init', 'register_my_menus' );

function register_my_menus() {
register_nav_menus(
array(
'primary-menu' => __( 'Primary Menu' ),
'secondary-menu' => __( 'Secondary Menu' )
)
);
}
