Suffusion
Adding another sidebar to suffusion. (4 posts)

    I'm a php novice and wish to add a sidebar to my suffusion child theme (I know - doesn't it come with enough!).

    How do I do it?

    I have tried register_sidebar in my own functions.php and cannot see the new widget area in my dashboard.

    register_sidebar(
        array(
    		'name' => 'RightMySideBar',
    		'id' => 'right-my-sidebar',
    		'description' => 'New widget area.',
    		'before_title' => '<h3>',
    		'after_title' => '</h3>'
    	)
    );

    Or... Should I use one of the Ad-Hoc sidebars and can I somehow use the shortcode in the php?

    I could reference the ad-hoc sidebar using it's id/name but I can't seem to do that in my child.

    Bit more info as to what exactly I'm trying to do: I'm trying to create another sidebar area to the right of the sidebar below header. I know I can make the sidebar below header two columbs but I want to put several widgets in the space on the right side. Make sense?

    Any help greatly apprechiated.

    So... Now i'm trying to override Suffusion's sidebar-below-header.php file. Within the file is the comment "This sidebar can be overridden in child themes by creating a file of the same name." But it's not working.

    Any ideas why?
