I just plugged in the Sidebar Generator Widget which allows me to create unique content sidebars and assign each sidebar on a page by page or post by post basis via a drop down menu in the write/edit post page.
I was originally using Widget Logic to accomplish the general goal but I found myself copying the same code over and over since I wanted several instances of the same widget(s) on maybe 5 pages and not on the rest. With this I make one sidebar fill it with a widget(s) and then assign it to a page then... go to the next page without having to revisit the widget page every time I want to add or subtract sidebar information from a page.
The plugin requires I switch each instance of
in the sidebar.php (which ATA 3.4.4 doesn't seem to have).
Went to the functions.php file and found the term twice. When I switched them, the new sidebar was created but it filled every instance of the new widgets I'd created with the "add widget area" formula. It didn't show up in the L, LI, R, RI sidebars.
I'd like to be able to control the 4 original (L, LI, R, RI) positions with this plugin.
Would that be possible and are there parts of the code I should just never touch?
BTW-- This theme is absolutely intense. My website looks very simple from the front but most importantly it doesn't look like a blog. That is until you get to the posts and you see "bloggy" style formatting (on purpose). Very cool!!!!
