Three different sidebars: homepage, pages and blog/posts - Possible?

Recommended Posts

I have a site with a static page set as homepage, and I would like to use the three widgetized sidebars as different sidebars for three different sections of my site: 1) Homepage -> Primary Sidebar 2) Pages -> Secondary Sidebar 3) Blog + posts -> Tertiary Sidebar In Template Setup, I've added all 3 widget sidebars to Sidebar 1, and I've ticked the following: - Primary sidebar: Hide this by default TICKED, Show on Posts Pages UNTICKED - Secondary sidebar: Hide this by default UNTICKED, Hide on Posts Pages TICKED - Tertiary sidebar: Hide this by default TICKED, Show on Posts Pages TICKED For the homepage to work with Primary Sidebar, I made it work by manually ticking 'Show Primary Sidebar' and hiding secondary and tertiary. On the blog section, only Tertiary Sidebar is showing, which is what I wanted. However, for posts and pages, it's not working. Pages and posts are behaving in the same way, and Secondary sidebar is showing both for pages and posts, which is not what I want. Any idea how I can achieve this? Thanks quick note: It's very confusing that when ticking the 'Hide this by default' the second option 'Hide/Show on Posts Page' changes! Especially when it doesn't change using Ajax, but have to refresh the whole page for it to work. Confusing!

The easiest way is using one of these plugins: Display Widget: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/display-widgets/screenshots/ Widget Context: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/widget-context/ Widget Logic: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/widget-logic/

Thank you, that did the trick. Shame PlatformPro doesn't allow this by default.

Glad you resolved it. I've not seen any themes that actually have this option. But it's a great idea. I'll mention it to the developers.
