How to create a second dynamic sidebar

  • I’d like to add a second dynamic sidebar. I’ve read a few posts and am stuck on where to add the following to the functions.php file: <?php if ( function_exists('register_sidebars') ) register_sidebars(2);?>.

    It seems the section where I would place that code (at the top of the functions.php file) has an array with widget statements, and so I’m not sure how to add the register_sidebars(2) to that piece of code.

    I’m not a programmer, so I’m sorry if this is a dumb question.

    Thanks

  • All anyone would have to do is forget about the array. Those parameters should be taken care of with your style-sheet. Copy and paste the above tag into your functions.php file-don’t have one then you’ll need to make one. <?php if (function_exists (‘register_sidebars’) ) register_sidebars(2); ?> — Then go to a sidebar.php file and copy this in — <?php if ( !function_exists(‘dynamic_sidebar’)
    || !dynamic_sidebar() ) : ?>
    <?php endif; ?> — If you have more than one sidebar, then copy this into each file and place a 1-into one file & a 2-into the other, into the last set of parenthesis — !dynamic_sidebar(1) ) : ?> — !dynamic_sidebar(2) ) : ?> — Remember that placement of the code into the sidebar file will dictate where your widgets start appearing and will nullify anything in the code underneath this piece of code.
