    I would like to add a sidebar element to my site that adds content based on the post I’m showing.

    Here is an example of what I’m talking about.

    In this case, it appears that the “Destination Facts” section is based on the location and/or category of the post. How can I do this?

    Hi Michelle,

    I often use a plugin called <a href=”http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/widget-logic/” title=”Widget Logic”> to do that.

    It uses WordPress <a href=”http://codex.wordpress.org/Conditional_Tags” title=”Conditional Tags”>, so you can tell it show a widget using a wide variety of logic, such as show this widget when category=africa, etc.

    You should also take a look at the plugin Genesis Simple Sidebars.
