Support » Fixing WordPress » return sidebar as a variable
9 years, 2 months ago
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();
many thanks in advance,
actually, good old buffering does the trick
ob_start(); // Start output buffering.
$sidebar = ob_get_clean();
