I've been able to set up multiple dynamic sidebars for my theme without any trouble. I have the INCLUDE's set up properly to call the appropriate sidebar_template.php file but when I use the Admin Widget manager I can only add a widget to ONE dynamic sidebar.
If I add the Page widget to sidebar1, save it and then load sidebar2 using the drop-down, the Page widget no longer has the option to add it to my second sidebar.
It looks like I can only load a single widget onto one dynamic sidebar at a time - my question: is this by design, a bug or did I miss a config change somewhere that spawns multiple "instances" of a widget?
If it's by design, I'll just drop hacking multiple side bars into my theme and use non-dynamic ones instead.
