Sidebar

Is it possible to have a different sidebar for some pages? I get the impression from the documentation that it is. My layout is 1 sidebar on the right of the content area. I think SB2 only works when you have two sidebars. SB1 shows up fine, but I initially thought that SB2 would replace it if the primary sidebar was hidden on the particular page (provided widgets were placed in SB2). This did not work. I have also tried to add widgets to the Tertiary bar and hide SB1, but still no luck. Any advise or assistance would be most appreciated Thanks in advance.

I think you want to use a secondary sidebar, rather than sidebar 2--sidebar 2 is beside sidebar one. Primary and Secondary (and tertiary and Base can be swapped in and out of Sidebar 1 or 2). Load the secondary sidebar section in under the primary sidebar on the sidebar 1 template and then turn them on and off as needed.

Hi Janet Thanks for the reply, but I am little confused about what you are saying. A secondary sidebar is what I want so that I can activate the primary or the secondary as required When you say

Load the secondary sidebar section in under the primary sidebar on the sidebar 1 template and then turn them on and off as needed
what do you mean? Thanks

Sidebar 2 and the Secondary sidebar aren't the same thing. Sidebar 2 is a template area, to the right of sidebar 1. The Primary, Secondary, Tertiary, Universal, Base sidebars go into either Sidebar 1 or Sidebar 2 sections. You put them in there in the Template Setup tab.

HI I'm reading this as I thought it might be relevant to my problem. We want to have 2 sidebars on the right on the homepage with 6 widgets in 2 columns just showing on the homepage, then on internal pages we want to have the option of different sets of widgets, ie on the left hand side a sub-pages navigation and a custom menu on certain pages also
