[Resolved] return sidebar as a variable

  • Hi,

    get_sidebar() works very well when you need to output the sidebar on a page. i’m wondering if there is a way to call the sidebar.php and return the evaluated content as a variable so that it can be used further in the code.

    something along the lines:

    $sidebar = return_sidebar();
    print do_something_with($sidebar);

    many thanks in advance,
    Tench

  • actually, good old buffering does the trick

    ob_start(); // Start output buffering.
    	get_sidebar();
    	$sidebar = ob_get_clean();
