Support » Theme: Twenty Thirteen » How to add a unique sidebar to just the Blog pages

  • I am trying to create a unique sidebar that appears on the blog pages. In other words, the pages (Home, About, Contact, etc) have one sidebar but when you are on the blog page you get a unique sidebar. Does anyone know how to make this happen in Twenty Thirteen?

  • It is feasible and actually not that complicated but it depends on your WP experience. It would be best to use a child theme. It also depends on what you mean by ‘blog page’: only the blog page or also on the single blog pages. You would have to register a new sidebar, make a new sidebar template and add this one to the appropriate template files.

    An easier way (= less code) could be to use a plugin. If you have Jetpack installed you could use the Widget Visibility module of it. Otherwise you can install the JP Widget Visibility plugin. Now you can use the widget area (sidebar) you have in the Twenty Thirteen theme to display all your widgets. But you can now set the visibility of each widget separately to appear on type of pages you’d like using the ‘Visibility’ button next to the ‘Save’ button in the widget.

    Hope it’s clear.
