how to add two sidebars to WordPress twenty eleven (3 posts)

    I have searched quite extensively, but havent really found any clear solution to my problem yet...
    I have a child theme of Twenty Eleven. On one page I would like to display one sidebar on the left and one on the right, content in between (but only on one page).
    At the moment I am using the Custom Sidebars plugin to have different sidebars on different pages, but it does not extend to the feature i now need.
    So I have two problems:
    1. how to create a left-and-right sidebar page with twenty eleven
    2. how to only have that particular page have two sidebars

    I would be very grateful if someone could point me in the right direction :)

    the website is http://www.ungewinster.de

    Create a custom page template that calls the left sidebar and the right sidebar. You may need to assign a different class to the content section of the page to make it narrow enough to support two sidebars.

    Here is info on creating a custom page template:

    Then once that's done, you should be able to see the newly created page template from your add/edit page editing panel.
