  • You’ll need to first register the sidebar and then load the sidebar in your template using dynamic_sidebar. From there it’s a matter of styling it using style.css to make it appear correctly.

    Ok i did excatly what that link said but it didn’t populated widgets i put in the sidebar.

    register_sidebar(array(
      'name' => 'Left Sidebar',
      'id' => 'left-sidebar',
      'description' => 'Widgets in this area will be shown on the left-hand side.',
      'before_title' => '<h1>',
      'after_title' => '</h1>'
    ));

    and i called it in index.php
    <?php dynamic_sidebar( 'left-sidebar' ); ?>
    what am i missing?

    Where are you registering the sidebar?

    read this:

    or possibly even use the theme featured in this blog.

    Hello,

    I realize this string is quite old, but I am looking to add a second column to my blog (http://cloudywithachanceofwine.com). I am currently using the Twenty Ten theme, and I love how clean it is, but in order to add ads, etc., I feel a second column is the way to go.

    In this string, I see you created a Thirty Ten theme, but I cannot find this when searching through themes in WordPress.org. Is this a live theme? If so, how can I activate it? It really is awesome – nicely done!

    Cheers,
    Dani

    afaik, the (only) source is the linked site by Aaron – and particular the download link in the menu bar – http://aaron.jorb.in/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/thirtyten.zip
