    I currently have about 15 custom sidebars. Is there is a limit to how many you can use or does it not matter because each page just fetches the appropriate sidebar as and when needed? I would like to create potentially hundreds.

    I don’t believe there is any upper limit, only your sanity and ability to keep track of them all.

    You may find the Genesis Simple sidebars plugin useful:

    Many thanks, I didn’t get notification of your comment so I’ve only just seen it. I am actually using the simple sidebars plugin to assign unique sidebars to specific pages and was wondering if it could cause any problems if I had hundreds of them.

    No problem because they are only loaded when the page is loaded.

    The page has to load a sidebar so it doesn’t matter which is loaded.

    Don’t forget you can also use the Widget Logic plugin if you want to customize display of widgets further.

    Many thanks, it’s what I suspected but didn’t want to embark on the¬†strategy¬†only to find it was a dead end :)
