How To Add Different Sidebars to Pages on WordPress

In this video, I’m going to show you how to add different sidebars on each page of WordPress. You can have it that only one sidebar is different, or you can change a few of them!

Worth Noting: You can use this to change ANY WIDGET AREA, not just your sidebars!

Having the ability to change our sidebars to be different on each page makes WordPress a whole lot more customizable.

5 Simple Ideas for using different sidebars:

1. Banner Ads that match the content in the post
2. Different Contact Forms for enquiring about each service you offer
3. Author Bios (if you have a few different authors, each can have their own sidebar)
4. Money Off Coupons
5. Click to Call Buttons that call through to different extensions of your number (different teams)

  2. Hi Marty,

    Enjoyed your video, just wanted to know the theme you used that has all those sidebar options, looks like it was made for marketers.
    Please let me know where I can get it.


  3. Great Video. Looking from 1 hour and found the solution here.

  4. This did not work. It did not replace the Sidebar and all my settings are correct. Can I get some help here? I also have bbPress installed and that plugin often screws with my other plug ins. But I have to have bbPress or some kind of forum plug in for my site. Advice? Alternative sidebar that works with bbPress?

  5. If there is no side bar for a theme, and it showing only footer 1 and footer 2 while we are selecting which side to be added how should we overcome through?

  6. Thanks bro! I totally appreciate it. Fast and easy.

  7. Super easy to follow and quick! Subscribing for sure. Thanks Marty I've been looking for a concise explanation of how to sort this for yonks.

  13. I attempted this, I am trying to add a second side bar to my front page. My original sidebar disappeared and now I have no sidebars.

  14. my side bar came across as a footer at the bottom of the page. Did I do something wrong? I want it on the side of my page not the bottom. Thanks!

  15. it's not a free plugins, it will get down some times, then next page will not open it.

  32. Your tuto looks like things are easy. I have to try. Thanks.

  33. That was so easy … thank you very much:)

  34. Hey Martie. Great Video.
    But i have a question , how to disable default sidebar? ( which is in every page )
    I don't want to show both sidebars.

  35. I don't see left sidebars to select where I want. Why is it so?

  36. In theory this works ok. But my problem is, that there is just too many options, and I get lost what is what. My main problem is that I need different sidebars (blog, shop, single article, product categories, about us, contact us pages etc.) and all of them are different height. Ghrrrrr. So frustrating !

  37. The tutorial is very clear and helpful. Thanks! But I got a question: why my sidebar has double line frame? How can I create a sidebar without frame like yours?

  38. Hello

    Is there any chance you could help me to set up a sidebar on my theme's home page? My theme currently does not have a sidebar built-in. Thank you

  39. Thank you so very much for the step by step easy to understand detailed instructions! I super appreciate it!
