How many sidebars can I choose from? (4 posts)

    I'm still trying to convince myself WP can become a CMS....

    Say I have 5 distinct different sections of my site, and I want a different sidebar for each.

    a) Is it possible?

    b) If so, how easy would it be to use? eg: Can the client go Add Page > Choose the correct Template/Sidebar > Write page > Publish.

    Thanks,
    Herb.

    a) Yes

    b) Not in 2.9.2 but the client could chose a custom page template that would, in turn, load a custom sidebar. Or different sidebars could be loaded by different catgeory templates.

    Where do I determine what is included in said sidebar?

    In a sidebar template file - eg. the file called sidebar-about.php would be called by <?php get_sidebar('about');?>.
