Lesson: Adding Sidebars to a Theme (3 posts)

    Write up and add a page showing how to add a sidebar to a theme. Include all necessary instructions. Do not include any links to any other pages.

    For example, include instructions on how to find the sidebar coding in a theme's stylesheet. Then show how to change the coding so the theme now has more (or fewer) sidebars than before.

    (I like Word Press, but the documentation is a little too involved. Go with the absolute basics. Treat everything you can do with a stylesheet (for example) as a separate page, and provide instructions for that. Group them all together in a TOC page called something like, "Fun Things to do With Style Sheets." Really, the documentation needs to be simplified, it's simply gotten to involved.)

    BTW, I will figure out how to use this dang thing! :D

    Codex is free for anyone to write in and to change anything.
    It can only get better if everyone does.

    This isn't a dig at you mythusmage but everyone wants Codex to be better but everyone wants someone else to do it for them and no-one does it. So it stays as it is .....

    It's free software made this good by the input of many. Docs aren't 'cool' things to do - so no-one does.

    The problem with me is, I don't know how to do it. If I did, I would post it. So maybe I should try another tack. Off to post on the "Themes" forum. :)
