    I am trying with no success to add a sidebar to Stretch Theme. It is absolutely the perfect solution that my client wants. EXCEPT for the lack of a sidebar. Any tips on registering a sidebar widget area to this theme would GREATLY appreciated :)

    Where do you want to display the sidebar exactly?

    Ultimately I would like a right primary sidebar widget area.

    There’s a fair amount of work to make that happen as you need to create a new template file and also add CSS code as the default theme doesn’t include any code for the sidebar.

    In theory couldn’t i duplicate the default page template, rename it, add a sidebar code ….say “newpagewithsidebar” upload it along side the other templates?. also add a “register sidebar” code to functions.php and then maybe copy some css for the sidebar from another similar theme and tweak it?

    I actually tried this and i think i missed something.
