Any idea why the items checked in "Finder Preferences" don't show up in my side bar?

Which items are checked that you're not seeing? Some items won't show up unless necessary. For instance, while "External discs" may be checked, you won't see anything in the sidebar unless something is plugged in.

Only 2 showing are the HD and the admin users name, I've checked stuff I want ie Desktop, applications, photos, downloads etc but nothing shows in side bar. Was ok yesterday.

Try hovering your mouse over "Favorites" in the sidebar then click on Show.Never ask a man what computer he uses. If it's a Mac, he'll tell you.
If it's not, why embarrass him?'"

If that ^ fails, you could replace your Finder.plist file with a fresh default, in case it is corrupt.

This might be hidden if you have Lion. I don't, so I don't remember the trick I've read to expose it.
find the file
move that to your Desktop and Restart the computer
a new plist file will be created, reset to default
