  1. How can I create a sidebar of my own?

  2. You can't create your own sidebar. We can't add functionality to themes here at wordpress.COM. You can add widgets to a sidebar, you can choose a theme with multiple sidebars, but you cannot create your own.

    What are you wanting to do with the new sidebar?

  3. My theme supports multi sidebars, but i can't create it of my own.
    i wanna create a sidebar for live traffic stat . is it possible on some other themes.

  4. You mean sidebar items. If you've found the live stats gadget you prefer, you copy the code they provide (if its plain HTML, not javascript), then go to Appearance>Sidebar, add a Text widget, paste the code in it, Save.

  5. Sorry, I meant go to Appearance > Widgets and add a Text widget to Sidebar.

    yes exactly what I needed to do.

  7. @panaghiotisadam
    i did the same process many a time but its not working.
    i mean my live blog stat gadget is not working

  8. Not strange at all - I had already warned you about this: we're not allowed to use javascript in blogs. You need to use the plain HTML version:

  9. My live blog stat gadget is working now :)
    Thanks to panaghiotisadam

  10. How can I make the sidebar disappear from a page that is not the Main page of the blog? It occupies too much space! Thank you

  11. Use a theme that offers this feature.

  12. Thank you raincoaster and panaghio... I will choose a different template listed there.
