    I just read through http://my.studiopress.com/tutorials/register-widget-area/ but am still a bit confused. It says:

    “To display this widget area in your theme, you have two options. You can place the widget code directly in a template file such as home.php, where you wish to display the widget area.”

    On that option, would I create a template file myself? If so, where can I find instructions to do that? I am hoping to create an “After Post” widget area.

    Thanks.

    OK. I figured it out, thanks to Nick’s tutorial here: http://designsbynickthegeek.com/tutorials/add-widgeted-sidebar

    The answer was to put the register code and the add-action code into the child theme’s Functions.php. Then style it in Style.css.

    Hope that helps someone else.
