Hi,

 

I apologise, but I am not quite sure what you're referring to when you say dynamic sidebars, can you provide more information please.

Say if you are on a certain page certain widgets will display in the sidebar.

 

I'm not sure if that is the right name for them... 

 

Eg. If you are on the About page show custom menu1 and if you are on the Contact page show custom menu2?

It's not possible "Out of the Box" but there are a number of plugins that allow you to display widgets on a per page/post basis. One that is highly recommend is called Widget Logic.

Hi There

 

I am wanting to display a different quote in the sidebar on each page of a site. Would it be possible to hard code each quote to display on a certain page? Or would that be best done with a hook?

The simplest method I can think of would be to use a text widget and add one quote per text widget, then use Widget Logic to control which widget displays.
