    Trying to get this to work in thesis 2.1 theme. I watched a few videos on the setup, and I am ready to go. But the new sidebar doesn't show up on my specified page. Any help is appreciated.

    http://kingmansolutions.com/ I am trying to keep the same sidebar on every page, except the blog page. On the blog page I want to add banners and a category listing to the blogs. Appreciate the help.

    Hi @kingmansolutions,

    Could you please let me know how you have configured the plugin so that i can help you to make it work?

    I checked your site http://kingmansolutions.com and found you are using WP Super Cache plugin.

    Can you just try clearing the cache?

    Best Regards,

    I've delete the WP Super Cache cache. (WP Super cache, settings, delete cache, Delete Cache.) Results: Did not correct the issue.

    Cache Contents
    WP-Cache (0KB)

    0 Cached Pages
    0 Expired Pages
    WP-Super-Cache (0KB)

    0 Cached Pages
    0 Expired Pages

    As for the setup, plugin is active. Under settings, I selected my sidebar for substitution and saved changes. I created a new sidebar and it is listed under Custom Sidebars. Under configure widgets, I show two side bars, my original and the new (sidebar widgets and blog sidebar respectively). Side bar widget has only a text widget and Blog sidebar has Categories, Resent Content and a text widget. On the blog page in the sidebar widget section, I have Sidebar Widgets: Blog Sidebar (blog sidebar is in a box), and I have updated the page.

    Hope that helps...

    Hi @kingmansolutions,

    Thank you for your reply.

    Have you set default sidebar for main blog page from the following path?

    Admin -> Appearance -> Custom Sidebars -> Default Sidebars Tab

    Could you please share me screenshot of plugin settings from Custom sidebars and Default sidebars tabs by uploading it here http://imgur.com/ so that i can check whether there is any issue in the plugin settings?

    Regards,
