[resolved] More than one Sidebar widget? (7 posts)

    Hi, I work for a web dev company which routinely uses wordpress.org blog as it's main form of back end blogging software.

    We have a customer who's requested a few new pages to be completely different from the rest of the site, however following the same theme.

    I created a few templates and got everything situated. Except we have one problem. We have a contact form in the sidebar which has a video regarding car crash legal support. The new pages have nothing to do with that. I was asked to take the video out. But if I take the video out, it will then be gone from the rest of the site. We can't do that.

    Can I create a new sidebar exactly the same as this one minus the car crash video and use it on my newly created template pages?

    Thank you for any help in advance.

    Hi WPyogi

    I'm not very good with the widgets. I was hoping there was something somebody could provide, like editing functions.php? And having more than one sidebar.

    There is a web variation I found through google, but it's old and it didnt work when I tried it.

    Thank you

    It is possible to create a custom sidebar.php file and call that one on a specific page -- but I think that's probably more complicated:
