Different Sidebars For Different Pages

  • Author

    I’m very new to WordPress, and I’m working with a custom template I uploaded. I have two questions:

    1. There are sidebar “widgets” imbedded in the code of the template. Some of them are active and some seem to be placeholders. For example, there is a sidebar that says it is a placeholder for an Aside or for ads. However, when I create a sidebar page, it doesn’t show up anywhere on the sidebars of the page.

    How do I activate those placeholder sidebars?

    2. Is it possible to have different sidebars on different pages? I like all the sidebars on pages I’ll use to blog, but not necessarily on other static pages?

    I should mention that my knowledge of coding is virtually nil.



    I think you need to be over at WordPress.org. We’re running different software here and so won’t be able to help you.




    Thanks…I didn’t even know there was a difference between the two sites.
