[resolved] Revised Instructions (3 posts)

    I like your plugin. But, the current instructions in the Codex don't correspond with the reality. I did find your revised instructions in another post, so I thought I'd place them here for others' benefit:

    1. Edit a page or create and save one. It must at least have a title.
    2. In the Custom Sidebar section, check Activate a custom sidebar and select the sidebar to replace. [My note: I just used the default one, "Pages Column".]
    3. On the Appearance->Widgets screen, place the widgets on the newly created sidebar that matches your post.

    As for the "Settings > Per Page Sidebar page" instruction, that does not view.

    As a webmaster for CMS type sites, this sort of plug-in is invaluable. It provides far more layout options for the designer. (If it can do the same to posts, then you've got a fan for life!)

    I'll test it out on a few more pages. Then I'll send you a "donation", which no doubt you deserve for putting this together.

    Sorry about the confusion. You're right. There's actually no settings page for this plugin. I copied and updated that section from another plugin I'd written forgetting that there wasn't a settings page for this plugin.

    In version 2, I've updated the documentation and notes to make this more clear. I've added many new screen shots that you can see on the wordpress.org page for this plugin and there's even a video that show how to use the plugin:

    I hope this helps!

    Cool. I'll give it another try.
