    I have a welcome page that I use for the front page. I tried to create a sidebar unique to that page but cannot seem to do so.

    Website is http://www.fenwayfanatics.com/

    Thanks!

    Hi fenfan, were you able to create the sidebar for the welcome page? If so, have you added any widgets to it?

    Yes, I created a sidebar simply called "Front Page Sidebar" and then added two default widgets (Categories and Recent Posts). However, when I load the page, it still shows the main sidebar.

    Hmm, I think the issue may be related to you having your posts listed on the front page. If I make a change to the plugin, would you be able to install it manually to test whether or not it works?

    Yes, I would be able to test that here. Not a problem!

    For posterity, this was resolved by adding wp_reset_query() after the loop of posts in the front page template.
