For example in the following snippet of code you can see how to do it by calling for the There is a plugin I used in combination of creating the custom sidebars because in the current model of Word Press default behavior is that you can only use a widget once in all sidebars.
So, I use a plugin called “Widgets Reloaded” that allows me to reuse a core set of widgets across all sidebars. From the outlined code above you may see how it is now possible to create as many custom templates as you like and get the look and function you are after.
Once the page has loaded you should see Site Layout options in the second column as seen here: That’s all that is needed to activate and “install” your basic, default sidebars. You may want specific content in a sidebar on a specific page, sets of pages, or specific categories in addition, or instead of the default sidebars. You will need to open up the file custom_file that resides here: ~/wp-content/themes/thesis/custom/ You are going to write a function that tests for the page or category, pulls in your content, and renders your sidebar how you like it.
You need to: /* CUSTOM SIDEBAR TEMPLATE */ function custom_sidebar_01() remove_action('thesis_hook_custom_template', 'thesis_custom_template_sample'); add_action('thesis_hook_custom_template', 'custom_sidebar_01'); I will admit that I did not create the following masterful stroke of coding.
