    Thats what im saying. The issue is within the DB as the folder contains the site and the DB contains the content. If i move the entire directoy and use the testDB the sidebar works, with the same directory if I replace the wp-config.php with the sites wp-config.php that is an issue, only pointing to the issue DB, problem is replicated. 100% agree the issue is within the DB. My question is where to look in the DB to fix this issue.

    I tried to explain that by moving the wp-config.php back and forth it is fixed/broken only by moving the wp-config.php which points directly to the DB being the culprit.

    How did I move the site;

    /var/www/mainsite/<CONTENTS OF ALL WP DATA HERE>

    /var/www/testsite/<CONTENTS OF ALL WP DATA HERE>

    mv /var/www/testsite /var/www/testsite_10112017
    cp -R /var/www/mainsite /var/www/testsite

    Tested that testsite.com had the same issue as mainsite.com once that was identified. I did this;

    mv /var/www/testsite/wp-config.php /var/www/testsite/wp-config.php-broken
    cp /var/www/testsite_10112017/wp-config.php /var/www/testsite/wp-config.php

    Tested site again, issue was not there, proving that the original testsite/wp-config.php from a fresh install pointing to testsiteDB did not contain the same issues with sidebar that maintsiteDB presented.

    Where in the DB can I look for these sidebar issues?
