    Hey, I’m trying to get this to work but I’m having some issues. I have set up a custom category sidebar for a post and page, but then when I click the link from the category sidebar on either I am taken to a category page which is using the default sidebar widget, even though I’ve set the custom category widget to display for certain categories. What I want is to also use the custom sidebar on this page as well. Is this possible?

    If i’m understanding correctly you have a custom sidebar you’ve registered and it displays on Post and Page pages?

    If you want this same sidebar to appear in your Archive pages, then open your archive.php and/or category.php (if applicable) theme file and replace <?php get_sidebar(); ?> with the get_sidebar() call you see in your single.php and page.php theme files.

    Let me know if this works out for you.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for responding. I found a work-around, though not through the way you suggested. I ended up using the Genesis Simple Sidebars plugin and adding a custom sidebar for each category. Thank you though.

    Glad it worked out!
