Can someone show me how to make different sidebar per page?

Recommended Posts

I have different products that have their own pages and on these pages I would like to have product specific sidebars that contain links to information specific to the individual products. If it's not possible using Pagelines then could you please possibly suggest a plugin that works well with Pagelines?

I have the same requirement. I have got something working by using Widget Logic in conjunction with using the "Universal Sidebar" exclusively for custom sidebar content. It works, but I can't help thinking it is a little clumsy. I am probably "missing something" when it comes to pagelines, but it was all I could come up with.

@brentwalker500 Widget Logic is the best solution for controlling which widgets appear on specific pages or posts. It's the gold standard for this, though most people ignore this critical information: http://codex.wordpress.org/Conditional_Tags @travelcafe, use that link above and you'll find the correct codes. Once you've become comfortable with them, Widget Logic becomes a symphony!

Yes, this works very well. Thanks everyone. I also found this video to be really helpful in applying Widget Logic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C4f-Zp8iWps
