I'm going through the Icicle course now and it has confused me. I'm on Module 7: Sidechaining the Bass and I don't understand how he has set the kick & snare as inputs. Shouldn't he have set the drums as the Source on the Side-chain Input page? 

There is a message saying 'Don't forget to route the kick/snare sound to the compressor sidechain when doing this (like Icicle did in this section!)' but I didn't see him do it at all. Maybe I have completely misunderstood.

Please could somebody help? Many thanks in advance

You haven't completely misunderstood. The message that pops up means don't forget to route the kick/snare to the compressor sidechain because Icicle did! That's why I put the message in. He does it in other parts of the course, but in that particular bit he didn't and I found that confusing, so added the message. I'm sorry the message confused you!

So yes, you should set those drums as the source(s) on the sidechain input page(s)
