Simple Page Sidebars

Easily assign custom, widget-enabled sidebars to any page.

Why is the default sidebar still showing after I've created a custom sidebar for a page?

If you haven't added any widgets to your new custom sidebar, the default sidebar will continue to display. If you really want a blank sidebar, try adding an empty text widget.

How do I give my blog a different sidebar?

We recommend that you set your blog to use the default sidebar and create custom sidebars for pages (including the front/homepage). That way your blog page and posts all have the same sidebar.

However, if you defined a page for your posts in the Reading settings panel and assigned a custom sidebar to that page, that will work, too.

Can I hide the "Sidebar" column on the Pages screen in the admin panel?

Yes, just click the "Screen Options" tab in the upper right corner of your screen and uncheck the "Sidebar" option.
