Sidebar Themes


What are they?
Sidebars are what neo used to use as the navigation for the site. They had a layout change though and switched to a different way, and now have site themes rather than sidebar themes. To see the current site themes and how to get them, then head over to the Site Themes Page.

After years of the default yellow sidebar for everyone, Neopets decided to release other sidebar themes that players can unlock. This way you can customise the way you look at all the neopets pages, if yellow isn't your favourite color, you could easily switch to another sidebar, that is once you have unlocked other sidebars. This page will show you what themes there are, what they look like and how you are able to unlock them.

Neopets also shows the amount of sidebars you have unlocked on your userlookup, above your secret avatar count.


How can you change your sidebar?
All the sidebar themes you have unlocked are listed on the Site Preferences page. At this page you can switch your sidebar from one to another.

Some sidebar themes have more bottom image. If you are using that sidebar theme, the bottom image will change while browsing the site.


The sidebar themes:
You can use the quicklinks below to go to a certain sidebar, or scroll down to see all of them.

[Yellow/Default] [Birthday] [Halloween] [Valentines] [Winter] [Curse of Maraqua]
[Space Faerie Premium] [Qasalan] [Altador Cup] [Altador Plot] [Cyodrake's Gaze]
[Tale of Woe]

Birthday Sidebar


You have this sidebar automatically every year on your birthday and on the birthday of Neopets (November 15th). You cannot unlock this sidebar theme to use it on other days of the year however. This sidebar is said to increase the number of random events you get, and it also removes all ads that appear on Neopets.

Winter Sidebar


You can unlock this sidebar theme in a random event on Terror Mountain. On December 31st of 2005 people "not-so-randomly" got the sidebar from the Advent Calendar.

Here is some info about the winter sidebar. This info is taken from Neopian Times Editorial #228 and Neopian Times Editorial #270:

I know December is long gone but, how come on Decemember 31, 2005 only some people got the winter sidebar from the Advent Calendar? I thought everyone was supposed to get the same prizes from the Advent Calendar. :\
Actually, random prizes are ocassionally given out via the Advent Calendar. This is done just to spice things up a bit and give a few lucky people an extra prize we wouldn't be able to give out otherwise. That being said, this was not the case here. :) Just like most of the other sidebars, there were certain requirements that had to be met in order to obtain the Winter Sidebar. If you met these requirements, you got it on the final day of the Advent Calendar. We can't tell you what those requirements were, of course, but it was certainly not a random giveaway. We'll give you a little hint however... the same requirements will need to be met next year, and the sidebar will again be given out on the final day of the Advent Calendar. You've got 10 months to figure it out! :)


I was thinking -- the way to unlock the winter sidebar ISN'T by staying up on Christmas Eve or Christmas night until midnight and refreshing at Terror Mountain... right? ~narelliagiven
More hint requests?! Ah, since it is a once-in-a-year opportunity, we'll let you off the hook this time. If you are celebrating Christmas, please don't upset Santa by staying up to midnight on Neopets. Should you meet the requirements, you'll be able to collect the sidebar by visiting the Advent Calendar at ANY time on December 31st.
