    Hi all,

     

    I’m using the Sample theme, on a few pages I’m making use of the primary sidebar, but one one page i need to have an entirely different set of widgets.  I’m thinking there’s a secondary sidebar sitting there getting no usage.  How can I choose to use this sidebar on a single page?

     

    Many thanks in advance,

    c

    Two thoughts:

    Try the Simple Sidebars plug in: http://www.studiopress.com/plugins/simple-sidebars

    Or try this tutorial:

    Thanks Susan, It’s almost spooky, i was just looking at that tutorial when you replied, which is suggesting simple sidebars, the thing is simple sidebars is compatible / tested up to WP version 3.3.2, i’m using 3.5.1 here.  So i’m a bit reluctant to use it.

     

    Thanks again.

    Well, having said I was just looking at the tutorial, obviously I hadn’t paid much attention!  It may well be the answer…

    By gosh, it worked!  I had to cobble together a page template, but yes!  Many thanks!

    I’m going to close this thread as resolved – go ahead and start another thread if you have another question.
